Swansea City v Stoke City
Leon Britton and Angel Rangel will make their final Swansea appearances at home to Stoke on Sunday.
The long-serving pair are expected to feature as substitutes in a game that is likely to confirm Swansea's relegation from the Premier League.
Stoke boss Paul Lambert has pledged to field his strongest available team.
Eric Choupo-Moting has returned to training after a groin problem but will not feature, while Bruno Martins Indi and Kostas Stafylidis are also out.
MOTD COMMENTATOR'S NOTES
Alistair Mann: "Even before it has been mathematically confirmed, it seems that the inquest into Swansea's impending demise has already begun, with both manager Carlos Carvalhal and long-serving pair Angel Rangel and Leon Britton among the first to depart.
"Huddersfield's point at Chelsea on Wednesday meant all three promoted clubs have now survived, with Swansea (seven years) and opponents Stoke (10 years) left with the realisation that continuous top-flight experience guarantees nothing.
"It seems Sunday's match will merely be a 90-minute distraction from some extremely significant soul searching."
WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY
Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal on reports of his imminent departure: "I have agreed with the chairman [Huw Jenkins] to talk after the end of the season.
"There has been speculation about me, but we will decide after the end of the season.
"I don't think many managers would do better than what we have done. But it is not a nice situation and not good for me."
Stoke City manager Paul Lambert denies there's a break clause in his contract: "There's no clause. I'm pretty sure when the game finishes we'll sit down and talk like any manager and owners.
"I love it here, I really do. It's a great opportunity to rebuild it because I know the areas where it's really lacking and I know the character you want to bring into the club, the type of player that suits this club, and first and foremost players that want to be here."
I expect Swansea to win, but not by anywhere near enough for them to stay up. They will be joining Stoke in the Championship next season.
