Goals either side of Marko Arnautovic's penalty miss for Stoke keep Swansea within two points of 17th-placed Hull

Swansea City 2-0 Stoke City

Stoke City were made to pay for a missed penalty by Marko Arnautovic as Swansea City boosted their hopes of staying in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory.

The hosts went in front on 10 minutes when Gylfi Sigurdsson swung in a corner and Fernando Llorente directed a superb header past Jack Butland on his return to the Stoke team.

After the break Xherdan Shaqiri was fouled in the penalty area, but Arnautovic blasted the spot-kick high over the crossbar with 21 minutes left.

Swansea soon made it 2-0 through Tom Carroll, whose long-range effort was deflected in.

With 17th-placed Hull City defeating Watford, Swansea stay in 18th position, two points adrift of safety. Stoke remain 11th.
