English Premier League: Swansea City season review

English Premier League: Swansea City season review”

Paul Lambert was brought in and won his opening game in charge 2-0 at home to Huddersfield - but then failed to register a win in the following 13 games, culminating in their relegation with a game to spare, after a 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace. The giant Egypt global settled quickly at the Hawthorns, prompting links to Liverpool and Leicester before his loan deal was made permanent in January.

Rounding off the defence is Dutch left-back Erik Pieters. The Swans conceded 56 goals in their 38 matches (the same number as the Baggies), with seven teams owning a worse defensive record. The 24-year-old helped his side keep nine clean sheets this campaign, making 222 clearances and 219 recoveries, and is likely to attract multiple suitors. Allen ranked highly at Stoke for passes per game (37.7) and pass success rate (81.1%) under Mark Hughes and Paul Lambert, while 2.7 tackles per game was also a notable return. A relegation release clause dictates that Allen can join any top-six club - other than Liverpool - for £25m, although his future might lie in mid-table, with West Ham and Wolves both keen.

Dawson has been a vital part of West Brom's side in the last few seasons.

Needing to beat Stoke, Southampton to lose to Manchester City and a 10-goal swing in goal difference in their favour, Swansea were realistically relegated when Huddersfield guaranteed their survival by holding Chelsea on Wednesday.

Compared to the dire straights the club was in in 2003 when they retained their Football League status in the last game of the season, Swansea are still in good shape. Rondon is most likely to be offered another chance in the Premier League owing to his physical style and ability to play as a lone target man.

Buried deep in a morose statement from Swansea City's American owners before the dust settled on their Premier League relegation was one damning admission.
