Both sides are level on points in the table with an identical record so far, winning and drawing thrice and losing just once, however, the Swans are ranked higher courtesy of a better goal difference.
Having started the season brightly, Steve Cooper's team is now winless in the last three games, dropping down to sixth and losing their early-season momentum.
The Potters are further two places adrift but have their confidence boosted after picking up the first home win of the campaign on Saturday.

Swansea City vs Stoke City Prediction
This is a clash of two erratic sides, so it can go either way, though Stoke's slightly superior head-to-head record might give them the psychological edge.
Stoke have also scored seven times from just the last three games - as much as Swansea have managed all season so far, so that favors the visitors, who are expected to win this match.
