In their first full season with a manager everyone assumed would be the first sacked, Swansea performed above all expectations to finish eighth in the Premier League.
That final standing not only gave Garry Monk’s side their highest ever top-flight finish, but also secured them a record points tally with 56.
All of that was achieved despite selling their best player, powerful Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony, to Manchester City in January.
With a new campaign on the horizon, the south Welsh outfit will be looking to improve beyond belief once again.
They have recruited to do so, having welcomed Braga striker Eder, French left-back Franck Tabanou, back-up goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt and the Champions League-experienced Andre Ayew to the club over the summer.
Having seen no other key cogs depart after Bony either, Monk looks well placed to better his efforts of last season.
Those fancying the Swans for a top-six finish should snap up Ladbrokes’ charitable price on the outcome, launching 8/1 odds in accordance with their Premier League Countdown special offer.
As each day until the start of the new campaign ticks down, the bookmaker releases a price on a special outcome for the season. With eight days remaining before the big kick off, today is Swansea’s turn to take the spotlight.
The Liberty Stadium outfit only need to make up six points on Liverpool from last season’s effort to see a payout on the latest offering. With the Welsh outfit preferring consistency to the Reds’ chaos this summer, such a gap may not be too hard to bridge.
