Fulham boss Martin Jol believes they're struggling due to an unsettled line-up.
The Cottagers started the campaign surprisingly well given the fact they lost a number of key players during the summer, including Clint Dempsey, Mousa Dembele and Danny Murphy.
Things have taken a turn for the worse in recent times, though, with Fulham just six points off the drop zone after one win in 11 attempts.
"Last year Swansea played well but we still managed to finish ahead of them in a very good position," said Jol.
"It is a very talented team, they play with a good culture but I have to say they can play in the same kind of line-up all the time.
"They have one or two different players maybe. They are in a very good situation.
"You see all these teams playing with the same sides all the time, they pick up the points and we had a big problem. I have to admit that.
"We had to change it around all the time and that didn't help us so Swansea is a team. If you see Michu up front or sometimes in the hole, he scores a lot of goals. He is their top scorer so he is certainly making the difference for them."
