Swansea's form is truly abysmal as they sit rooted to the bottom of the table and this match may well be Clement's last game if they lose here. Palace are in excellent form and while they are not winning every game, they are proving incredibly tough to beat so they could sneak this one.

November 2016 offered up one of the games of last season, although perhaps not from a defensive point of view. It was a rare moment of joy for then Swansea coach Bob Bradley as his side earned a dramatic late winner in a frenetic clash which ended up with the Swans edging it by five goals to four. Fernando Llorente’s two injury time goals would turn the game on its head and add more pressure on Palace boss Alan Pardew.
