Swansea and Norwich clash at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday in a big game at the bottom of the Premier League table.

Swansea recorded a vital 2-1 win at Premier League title chasers Arsenal on Wednesday night. After conceding the opening goal, Wayne Routledge hit back with an equaliser, before Ashley Williams secured maximum points with the winning goal in the second half.

The victory was a vital one, as it moved the Swans six points clear of the relegation zone. The Welsh side will see this game as a good chance to further distance themselves from the drop zone.

Norwich’s poor run of form in the Premier League continued last time out, as the Canaries suffered a 2-1 defeat at home against reigning Premier League champions Chelsea. The Blues took a two-goal lead through goals from Kenedy and Diego Costa.

Winger Nathan Redmond hit back for the side from Norfolk on 68 minutes, but the goal turned out to be little more than a consolation goal. The defeat means that the Canaries dropped into the Premier League bottom three. Alex Neil’s side have now lost five out of their last six games in the top-flight.
