Brendan Rodgers will be hoping the Liberty Stadium fans can get his side back to winning ways, while Martin Jol will be looking to build on his team's impressive win over Liverpool
Richards, Williams, Monk, Taylor
Dyer, Britton, Gower, Sinclair
Kelly, Hangeland, Senderos, Riise
Dempsey, Sidwell, Etuhu, Duff
The Swans should be able to welcome back top scorer Danny Graham to the side, but they are without Joe Allen after the Welsh international was sent off in the defeat to Blackburn. Scott Sinclair will probably slot back into his more accustomed left wing position, meaning Leroy Lita retains his place after scoring on Saturday.
Damien Duff looks set to return for the Cottagers following a calf injury which saw him miss the 1-0 win over Liverpool on Monday. Steve Sidwell could also make a comeback from injury, a timely boost for Martin Jol, who could be without lynchpin Danny Murphy after he hobbled off against Liverpool. Zdenek Grygera is still sidelined with cruciate ligament damage.
|DID YOU KNOW?|
- Swansea have kept an impressive five clean sheets from their seven home games in the Premier League, and have the best defensive home record in the league having conceded just two goals.
- The last time these two sides met at the Liberty Stadium was in the FA Cup fifth round, where Jason Scotland forced a replay for the Swans after a Gary Monk own goal had given Fulham the lead.
- The resulting replay at Craven Cottage ended 2-1, with Fulham edging out the Welsh side. Clint Dempsey (pictured right) cancelled out Jason Scotland’s opener, before Bobby Zamora completed the comeback.
- Dempsey’s late winner against Liverpool on Monday saw him become the leading US goal scorer in the Premier League, moving him onto 37, one above former Fulham team-mate Brian McBride.
- Fulham’s win against Liverpool on Monday was their first in five games, a run stretching back over a month.
- Before Manchester United beat Swansea 1-0 in November, the last time a team had taken all three points from the Liberty Stadium was in February, when Dave Jones’s Cardiff edged the south Wales derby 1-0.
- Fulham haven’t been beaten in any of their last three away games, a run which has seen them take all three points at Wigan, and a point from Arsenal.
- Fulham have won just four of their last 44 Premier League away games.
- The Liberty Stadium has seen the fewest amount of goals in the Premier League this season, with just 10, although Swansea have scored eight of them.
