Decent finishes, a good team performance so far. But we all know it can change, there's a long long long way to go. Fingers crossed please!
Half an hour gone, Stoke win 2-0 here at the Liberty. A third of the way through and all is going to plan
Stand up if you're 2-0 up sing the Stokies
Walters gets forward down the right, squares low to Crouch, Ireland continues his run on. Crouch plays it first time and the midfielder finishes well past Tremmel. Fantastic!
and Stoke go two-up! Ireland with the finish. Yes!!
Swansea switch from left to right and Arnautovic has to get back well to cover Rangel. Huth then clears out the danger
Routledge curls it in with power from the left, but it drops straight out for a goal kick
Stoke defend well with Huth and Cameron both putting their bodies on the line there. Crouch gets back to close a cross down too, but referee Madley says he fouled Davies and gives Swansea a free kick
17 minutes gone, 1-0 to the Potters. Both teams looking to get a hold of the game in the midfield area
A cross from the right, Lamah rises in the box, heads down but Begovic saves comfortably.
Walter's first goal since May. His last coming against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last season. Another joint-top league goalscorer
A minute's silence to come now for Remembrance Day
Five changes for Swansea, Michu and Vorm the big absentees today. Stoke scored two past Tremmel last season at the Brit, lets hope for more of the same
The handshakes have been done, and off come the tracksuit tops. Stoke in the away strip today, Asmir in all green
The teams are in the tunnel and are just heading out now. Come on Stoke!
We'd love that Jon, a reverse of the scoreline down here last year
Jon Walters makes his 100th consecutive Premier League appearance for the Potters this afternoon. The longest run of its kind in the top flight currently. Can he mark that achievement with a goal?
Terry Conroy has joined Nigel Johnson and Lee Blakeman in the commentary box for today's game and you can log on to listen to their thoughts ahead of kick off now
The officials have been confirmed for this weekends fixtures - and the referee for our match against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium will be Robert Madley. His only other Barclays Premier League match this season was the 1-1 draw when Hull City hosted Cardiff City back in September.
MH: In terms of the football that we have played I think the supporters are encouraged. Long term this will benefit us, there is no doubt about that. Obviously they want to see us winning more games than we have done, and I agree with that - it is what we all want. The signs have been encouraging though, and we will look to get the points on the board tomorrow.
MH: We are the home side, we want to dictate the game, and not the other way around. We will hopefully be on the front foot, and we will be looking to take the game to them and put in a performance that earns us the three points that we are all looking for.
