When Swansea beat Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium last weekend, all the talk was about how Roberto Mancini’s men were throwing away their best chance to win a league title in years.
Few stopped to consider the scale of what a comparatively small club from the Welsh valleys had just accomplished, and it seems the bookies have also overlooked this, making Brendan Rogers’ side a mouth watering price of 7/2.
Indeed, for all the admiration directed at Swansea’s stout defensive record at home in the Premier League and their glossy brand of passing football, little has been mentioned about the fact that this season they have defied all the odds to be in 11th place on 36 points with 10 games still remaining. Their survival is now almost guaranteed.

Indeed, when they take on Fulham on Saturday, they will be taking on a side who are only one place above them, with only goal difference separating the two teams. Win it, and they will be propelled towards the heady heights of the Premier League’s top ten.
Brendan Rodgers has instilled a belief in his side, a belief that they can match any team in the division on their day. He has built a vibrant, attacking squad of players built around a solid core of hard-workers and a goalkeeper who seems to be moving closer towards the ‘world class’ category with every game that passes.
Saturday’s game will present the Swans the opportunity to wrap up an impressive league double against their West London opponents, having already beaten them 2-0 at the Liberty.
In total, the two sides have faced one another on 60 occassions with Fulham traditionally having the upper hand with 30 wins, 20 losses and 10 draws.
But Swansea are an altogether different proposition these days, and will be eager to collect the three points that takes them past the 38 point barrier that almost always guarantees a side’s Premier League survival.
This one gets underway at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.
