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.

  • However, The Swans are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 home matches in the Premier League.
