Five Key Matches
v Burnley (A) on August 14
Given their away form last season, Swansea get a chance to make the ideal start to 2016/17 against newly-promoted Burnley.
v Middlesbrough (A) on December 18
Expected to be fighting relegation, this Middlesbrough clash is another opportunity for the Swans to earn away points.
v Bournemouth (H) on January 1
During a busy festive period, a clash at home to fellow overachievers Bournemouth shapes as a huge chance for three points.
v Hull City (A) on March 12
A trip to the KC Stadium marks the first of back-to-back away matches – the second at Bournemouth – in a key part of the season for the Swans.
v Watford (A) on April 16
Just where these teams will sit this late in the season remains to be seen, but this could be crucial if they are battling in the lower half.
SBS Host Lucy Zelic's Prediction: 12th
Last season’s mid-table finish was ultimately a disappointment for Swansea. They do have enough quality to make a push for a European place if the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Leroy Fer and Botafemi Gomis fire. New owners from the US should also herald an exciting new chapter.
