Standing in for Vorm, the keeper could do little about the three goals he conceded.
Not his best outing. Struggled against Stoke's forwards and was often found out of position.
Injured early on, the captain managed to play on but was caused real problems by Crouch and Walters physicality.
Typically industrious if unremarkable outing from the Spaniard.
A solid performance from the full back. Didn't get forward as much as he would have liked, and was caused problems by Stoke's frontline.

Crossed a wonderful ball onto the head of Bony for Swansea's first. Replaced by Shelvey in the second half.
Largely ineffectual. Didn't make any real impact on the game.
Was instrumental in the Swans' second goal. Industrious performance by the winger.
Was disrupted from his usual passing game in the first half but remained calm and collected in midfield to help his side win.
Forced Begovic into a good save in the first half with a strong header, but failed to make an impact.
Struggled in the first half but took his chances when it mattered, scoring two goals to put Swansea ahead.
Excellent in the first half but will be disappointed to have conceded three goals.
Imperious in the first half but, as Bony grew in confidence, he was increasingly put under pressure.
Almost gifted Bony a goal in the first half. Otherwise solid.
Like Huth, played well in the first half but struggled as the game was stretched.
Largely ineffectual in the second half but was composed in the first half, dealing with most of Swanseas's attacks competently.
Took his goal well but struggled to make an impact in the second half.
Excellent in breaking up Swansea's play. Replaced by Charlie Adam who ultimately changed the game.
Did well to limit Swansea's attacks but faded in the second half.
Took his goal beautifully and was typically industrious, but as Swansea grew Stoke's frontline became anonymous.
Worked well with Walters but struggled to make any impact in the latter stages of the game.
Looked threatening in the first half but could not produce an end product. Replaced in the second half.
