Ki Sung-Yueng, who came on as a half-time substitute against Liverpool, has returned to full fitness and should start.

Itay Schechter's anonymous performance in Sunday's 0-0 draw could see him drop out, with Michu moving up front from his attacking midfield role.

Long-term absentees Michel Vorm (groin) and Neil Taylor (ankle) are still missing, with Gerhard Tremmel and Ben Davies to continue in their places.

Ben Foster is taking longer than expected to return from his groin injury, meaning Boaz Myhill will continue to deputise for the former England goalkeeper.

Youssuf Mulumbu was ruled out of Saturday's win at Sunderland due to a hamstring injury, and is expected to miss out once again at the Liberty Stadium.

Craig Dawson remains sidelined with an eye injury.

  • Swansea have won three of their last four league meetings with West Brom.
  • However, The Swans are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 home matches in the Premier League.
  • If they avoid defeat on Wednesday the hosts will have gone five games unbeaten, setting a new Premier League club record.
  • Only Luis Suarez, Demba Ba and Robin Van Persie have scored more Premier League goals than Michu (pictured right) this season. The £2 million summer signing from Rayo Vallecano has hit seven goals in 13 games for Michael Laudrup's men
  • West Brom are enjoying their best start to a top-flight season since 1953-54, when they went on to finish second in the old First Division.
  • They have not recorded a longer winning streak in the top-flight since winning six in a row in 1979.
