It’s a credit to Swansea that they’ve become a firmly established part of the premier league furniture. Going into their 6th season in the top division, it would be easy to overlook them as safe mid-table candidates. That being said, once again the Swans have given another star striker away (Michu, Bony, and now Ayew) not to mention their fearless leader Ashley Williams. In comes another striker with an exotic name in Borja Baston, which stands for top bloke in Welsh – apparently. Francesco Guidolin is back in the driving seat after delivering a 12th place finish, but the jury’s still out on the Italian and he faces a tougher task ahead if he is to ensure premier league survival. The Swans could be left swimming behind the flock if they get off to a bad start. They face Chelsea, Man City and Leicester in their first 6 games, as well as an away trip to new boys Burnley. They may have become part of the furniture, but it could well be time for a new sofa.

Key man: Borja Baston

Best signing: Borja Baston

Verdict: 18th
