How they rated
Had a couple of nervous moments with the ball at his feet, but was his usual dependable self with his gloves. Very little he could do about either goal.
Regularly offered an outlet down the right flank without ever finding the final ball, or threatening to do so. Held his own defensively, but touch off his back set the ball up for Mame Diouf to find the net.
MIKE VAN DER HOORN
Has been solid in the absence of Federico Fernandez and was for the most part here. However, was caught the wrong side of Shaqiri following Fer’s error, and his unfortunate slip resulted in panic for Stoke’s second.
A solid enough outing from the centre-half, but will know he was fortunate to get away with his error in being robbed by Diouf in the first half.
Set-up Bony’s goal with a cross into the Ivorian’s path and motored down the left regularly but, like Naughton, on the opposite flank, that final bit of quality was often absent.
Provided some impetus in the Swans midfield and made several good runs. But he blotted his copybook badly by dallying on the ball to allow Stoke to nip in and pounce for the equaliser, it completely changed the game.
Did his best to keep Swansea ticking in possession and made one vital interception as Stoke looked set to capitalise on a Mawson error.
He was neat and tidy, and offered some energy with runs forward. But lack of confidence is clear to see as he bungled an attempted finish in the second half.
It would be unfair to make him a scapegoat, but the Ghanaian remains hugely frustrating. On several occasions he demanded a pass from his team-mates, and then stopped his run when they granted his wish.
Became visibly frustrated at the lack of service, but rarely threatened to get involved and avoid being on the periphery of the game.
Tom Carroll 6 (for Clucas, 73): A couple of decent deliveries threatened during one decent Swansea spell. Oli McBurnie 5 (for Ayew, 73): Asked to play in an unfamiliar number 10 role. Renato Sanches 5 (for Fer, 85): Minimal time to make an impact.
