Early Bojan penalty punishes sloppy Swansea

first_img1 An early Bojan penalty was enough for Stoke to earn a thoroughly-deserved victory over an insipid Swansea side which ended the Swans’ unbeaten home record.The Spaniard was felled by a horribly off colour Ashley Williams inside three minutes and sent Lukasz Fabianski the wrong way from 12 yards.Jonjo Shelvey was denied by the woodwork as the hosts improved slightly after the break but they couldn’t muster an equaliser against their resilient visitors.It took Stoke just three minutes to find a breakthrough and it was the first indication that Williams was in for a torrid night.Bojan burst forward and lured the Swans’ captain into a clumsy challenge before dusting himself off to bury the resultant penalty in the top corner.Williams then horribly misjudged a cross from Marko Arnautovic which nearly let the impressive Joselu in for a Stoke second.While the Potters were in control, they nearly relinquished their stranglehold when Jack Butland miscontrolled the ball before recovering well to snuff out the danger with Andre Ayew poised to capitalise.Joselu then acrobatically volleyed wide before Glen Johnson skewed horribly off target after a smooth interchange with Xherdan Shaqiri.The Swans likely got an earful from manager Garry Monk at the break and Shelvey’s effort, which rattled off the base of the far post after he appeared to dawdle too long, suggested there would be more impetus in the second half.Arnautovic was the liveliest attacking outlet on the pitch but was unable to lift over the onrushing Fabianski when well picked out by Shaqiri just after the hour mark.The Swans’ wastefulness would continue into the dying embers, with only an ambitious effort from Gylfi Sigurdsson which whistled just wide threatening to level proceedings.
