Rarely tested in the opening half of the game as the Swansea front line failed to really click into gear, the only effort that had the Bosnian worried was Michu’s curling effort from the edge of the penalty area but he watched it sail just wide of his left-hand post.
Stayed very close to Dyer and didn’t give the winger a chance to run at him at pace. Linked up well with Walters.
Was dominant in the air against Graham and he picked up the runs of Michu well to deny the forward a real sight of goal.
The American had a solid game at right-back, handling the threat of Hernandez very well. Also provided a good threat going forward, overlapping well in support of Kightly but his final ball lacked the quality Crouch needed to feed off.
A very easy afternoon for the Potters captain, working well with Huth to keep Graham very quiet and limit the number of balls being played into the striker.
Eager to run at Davies whenever he could and he had plenty of success against the youngster, with his crosses providing a real threat to the Swansea defence and the perfect ammunition for Crouch to work with.
Had a good game in the centre of midfield choosing to keep things simple and maintain possession. Provided the pinpoint corner that was met by the head of Crouch in the 12th minute.
Looking brighter and fitter with every game he plays for Stoke the Scot showed some real moments of genius in the final third. His footwork and skill left Ben Davies on the floor on a number of occasions. Substituted in the 68th minute and received a standing ovation from the home supporters.
The more defence-minded of the midfield three for the Potters, providing an excellent shield to his back four whilst also giving his team-mates an easy option to keep possession.
The Irishman didn’t have as much of an impact as when deployed down the middle but provided a real threat down the left. Had a good battle with Rangel which neither player really dominated.
Was Stoke’s standout player as he grabbed his third and fourth goals of the season to seal all three points for the Potters. Saw a late header crash against the crossbar to deny him his hat trick and was replaced by Jones in the 86th minute.
Could do nothing about Crouch’s opening goal which was from such close range he had no time to react, however he should have better with the second goal.
The Swans captain didn’t enjoy one of his better games, struggling to cope with the threat posed by Stoke. He was beaten all too often in the air by Crouch and failed to pick up some of the runs from midfield.
Had a really good battle down the right-hand side against Walters, and gave as good as he got against the Irishman. However, going forward he struggled and wasn’t able to make much of an impression in support of Dyer.
Looked nervous at left-back and gave the ball away on a couple of occasions to the lively Kightly. Used his pace to keep up with the winger but being so lax in possession did not help his side.
The centre half returned to the Swans side to partner Williams but struggled against the power and presence of Crouch. Hardly won a header against the striker all game.
Given the chance to redeem himself after being sent off after just 12 minutes last weekend and was very lively. Further improved after the break with some more direct runs, but he was unable to create anything of note for his side.
Made some good runs into dangerous positions but his attempts to link up with his team mates often resulted in the ball being intercepted by the Stoke defence. Substituted in the 62nd minute with Routledge coming on in his place.
The South Korean looks to have settled into the Swansea style of play very easily and he worked well alongside Britton in the centre of the pitch.
Good on the ball, always keen to receive a pass, and positive in everything he did for his side. However, he struggled to get his side going as the dominant Stoke midfield limited the time he had to create for the visitors.
The Spaniard was hardly in the game in the first half as the attentions of N’Zonzi restricted the space he likes to occupy behind the front man. Had the only Swans effort of the first half just before Crouch’s second goal but pulled his shot wide of goal.
He worked very hard on his own up front. Never stopped trying to find space but the service into him was poor and as such he failed to make much of an impact on the game.
Replaced Adam in the 68th minute and provided a new threat down the left with his pace. He delivered some good crosses in for Crouch, particularly in the 78th minute, but the striker's header bounced off the crossbar.
Replaced Whelan with nine minutes to go and continued the good work his colleague had done in the middle of the pitch.
Replaced Crouch with four minutes to play.
