Huddersfield, however, extend their wait for a win since August and are being rudely introduced to life in the Premier League after their dream start. 
Huddersfield attack one last time, but it comes to nothing and the referee blows his whistle for full-time! Swansea produced a much-needed impressive home performance, with Abraham scoring twice in a man-of-the-match display. He took two opportunistic chances, the first a simple, low finish tucked away after Lossl had given the ball away to Carroll, and the second a tap-in after good work from Ayew to chip the goalkeeper. A comfortable 2-0 win for the Swans and an encouraging all-round performance! 
90' + 3' Swansea in an organised, defensive shape in their area as they look to see out the five stoppage time minutes. Lowe tries to catch them out with a right-footed cross, but it's clearly his weaker side as it sails out for a goal kick. 
90' + 1' Depoitre brings the ball down well from a hopeful long ball, but takes the wrong option as he turns out and shoots straight at his marker. 
89' Mooy whips a cracking ball across the face of goal for Depoitre, who was lurking at the back post, but Mawson read it beautifully and made an inspired interception!
86' Mooy looks to break quickly, but holds onto the ball a second too long and is clipped by Ayew. He stays down for a minute, but looks okay to continue.
S. Clucas
L. Britton
84' Club-record signing Clucas replaces Britton in the centre of midfield. 
82' CHANCES! Dyer can't quite find Abraham in the Huddersfield box after some neat work, before van la Parra's deflected effort is tipped behind by Fabianski, who has barely had anything to do today. 
C. Löwe
S. Malone
81' Huddersfield looked set to bring on attacking midfielder Sabiri, but instead swap Malone for Löwe in a like-for-like change. An odd substitution.
80' Mooy whips the ball in towards Depoitre in the area, but he's outmuscled and the ball is cleared. The big striker has hardly had a touch today. 
79' CHANCE! Ki drives into the space in midfield, plays a neat ball out to the right and even tually gets it back before hitting a low drive just wide of the far post! 
N. Dyer
L. Narsingh
76' Substitution Luciano Narsingh Nathan DyerDyer - finally back after a long period out with an Achilles injury - comes on to replace the impressive Narsingh.
Ki Sung-Yeung
L. Fer
73' Fer, on a yellow card, is replaced by Ki. Sensible decision from Paul Clement there.
72' Schindler takes a massive risk in playing out from the back, playing the ball through the legs of Narsingh when he was in the last man in his own area!
70' CHANCE! Abraham was inches away from his hat-trick there! Narsingh does excellently again to get away down the right, and fires a low cross into the box, but Abraham can't quite get anything on it and it's cleared!
R. van La Parra
Yellow Card
66' van la Parra is the latest Huddersfield player to go into the book for pulling Narsingh back as his looked to break quickly on the Terriers defence before they could organise.
65' Lossl plays the ball out from the back again under pressure, but this time finds Malone. The travelling supporters no doubt had their hearts in their mouths then!
64' Huddersfield pile men forward and there's a penalty box scramble, but Swansea eventually clear. Abraham then clips the heels of a red and black shirt, and gives away a free-kick, which comes to nothing. 
62' Narsingh does excellently to track back, and wins the ball cleanly and fairly, before clearing it away to safety. He's had a good game so far.
61' van la Parra receives the ball with his back to goal and turns into space. He ignores the run of his teammate, though, and fires a tame effort straight down the goalkeeper's throat. 
D. Williams
P. Billing
60' Billing is replaced, having rolled his ankle, and has to be strechered off the field. He's replaced by Williams, just back from a foot injury, and will play alongside Mooy in midfield. 
57' Netherlands U21 international Billing goes down under no challenge honding his ankle. The big midfielder looks like he's in agony, and will almost certainly have to be replaced.
56' Huddersfield appear to have shifted to a 4-4-2, with van la Parra joining Depoitre up front and Kachunga shifting out to the left wing.
54' Some nice interplay from Swansea down the right earns them a corner, after good work from Narsingh and Naughton.
53' Depoitre relieves the Huddersfield pressure with a silly foul, allowing Swansea to regroup.
51' Malone lets the ball run out of play, thinking it would be going out for a goal kick, but it's quite clearly a corner, to the left-back's bewliderment. It's cleared away though, much to his relief.
J. Ayew
48' Ayew gets lucky as the ball breaks to him, but does wonderfully to dink it over the onrushing keeper. His effort was actually on target, but Abraham made sure it went in with Huddersfield defenders rushing back to clear.
T. Abraham
48' GOAL! Substitute Mooy makes a wonderful sliding challenge on Narsingh as he drives through the Huddersfield midfield, but the ball falls kindly to Ayew, who dinks it over Lossl, and it's that man Abraham again who bundles it over the line! 2-0 Swansea!
A. Mooy
J. Hogg
46' Hogg is replaced by Mooy as David Wagner looks to change things around in the second half.
The on-loan Chelsea striker has looked threatening throughout the first half and duly got his goal, after forcing Lossl into a save early on in the half. Swansea have used the flanks well though, and Huddersfield have often resorted to fouling their opponents in order to disrupt their play - racking up four yellow cards in the first half.
Ayew's free-kick flies just wide, and that's half time! Swansea have looked bright throughout in a full-blooded contest, and Swansea's man of the match so far in Abraham capitalises on a mistake by Lossl, who passed it straight to Carroll, tucking his chance into the bottom corner to put his team in front at the break!
M. Jørgensen
Yellow Card
45' + 2' Unbelieveably, Zanka also gets a yellow card for kicking out at a Swansea player! We could be looking at a second yellow in the second half if it continues in this vein!
J. Hogg
Yellow Card
45' + 1' Hogg joins his teammate in the book, diving in on Ayew as he looked back towards his own goal. Unnecessary really.
T. Smith
Yellow Card
45' Smith gets booked for diving into a tackle somewhat recklessly. A product of frustration as much as anything, that.
T. Carroll
42' Carroll did well to find Abraham with his low cross, but he was really the beneficiary of a woeful pass from Lossl that went straight to him.
T. Abraham
42' GOAL! Abraham fires Swansea ahead! Lossl plays an awful ball out under pressure and gives it away to Carroll, who fizzes it across goal for Abraham to tuck it into the bottom corner with a superb first-time finish! 1-0 Swansea!
42' Olsson takes a throw-in and gets it straight back, but runs the ball out of play in his attempt to work space for a cross.
40' Abraham picks up a loose pass out from the Huddersfield defence, and plays Narsingh in down the right, but Schindler gets across to make a perfectly-timed challenge on the winger. Great play from the defender.
38' Kachunga picks the ball up on the right and drives past several white shirts with real determination, before Ayew eventually halts his progress with a foul.
36' Tackles are flying in left and right in this game! There's certainly no lack of passion from the players on the field in this game.
33' Mawson pings a wonderful cross-field ball for Narsingh, but the winger had just strayed offside. What a wonderful pass from the young centre-half though!
32' Naughton lands awkwardly following a collision and stays down momentarily, but it seems as though he's okay and able to carry on.
30' Fernandez is found all on his own in the box from a free-kick but he's flagged offside. Lossl sends Ince on his way with a quickly-taken kick, and he goes down in the box under close attention from Olsson, but the referee - who is down the other end of the pitch - looks to his assistant, who shakes his head.
27' CHANCE! van la Parra twists and turns on the left, before lofting a wonderful cross into the box, which finds Ince six yards out, but the Englishman somehow blasts his volley over the bar! He had times his run perfectly and looked certain to score, but his personal hunt for a goal this season goes on. 
26' Kachunga does well to win the ball back from Britton, who then fouls the attacking midfielder in frustration.
C. Schindler
Yellow Card
25' Schindler gets his yellow card this time, and it's Fer who is fouled for a change, as the big centre-back takes his legs out from underneath him.
23' CHANCE! Kachunga gets away into the box, and despite Fer having a fistful of his shirt, he breaks clear and fires a shot at the near post, but Fabianski holds it well. Another hairy moment for Fer, who could have been off there had Kachunga gone down.
22' Huddersfield win the ball back in the Swansea half as Fer is dispossessed, and the Terriers win a corner as they break down the right, as Smith's cross is deflected behind. Ince's delivery is yet another in a string of poor set-piece crosses today, and it doesn't beat the first man. 
19' Narsingh races down the right and checks back well, but holds onto the ball a moment too long and Huddersfield regroup. The winger crosses and appeals for handball as it's blocked, but there's nothing doing there. 
17' Naughton is felled, and the referee plays advantage, but Huddersfield win the ball back and win a corner. Paul Clement is furious that the referee didn't pull it back for a free-kick!
15' Swansea are looking dangerous down the flanks, and Abraham is doing especially well in running the channels, and looks especially dangerous. Huddersfield are giving away foul after foul in dangerous positions, and it's surely only a matter of time before one of these deliveries causes problems. This is where the Welsh club really miss the set-piece quality of Gylfi Sigurdsson. Carroll's cross is cleared away, and Huddersfield survive.
14' Abraham tries to flick the ball over his marker, and is adamant that it struck an arm, but the referee is unmoved.
12' Olsson uses his pace well to get in behind down the left, and his low cross is cleared for a corner. Fer gives away a free-kick in the box, however. The Dutchman needs to be careful now, on a yellow card.
11' Schindler gets away without a yellow for a hefty lunge, but gives away a free-kick on the Huddersfield right. It's whipped into the box, but Huddersfield clear.
9' The resulting corner is poor, but it bounces around in the area and eventually Ayew manages to shoot on the swivel, but it's deflected behind for another corner. It's another poor delivery though, and is cleared easily.
8' CHANCE! Abraham latches onto a lofted ball in behind, and while the bounce takes him a little wide, he wraps his foot around it and strikes it well across goal, only for Lossl to pull off a great save!
7' Huddersfield keep the ball safely for a little bit, looking to slow the momentum that Swansea are building. However, a poor clearance from Lossl goes straight to a Swansea player, and the pressure is back on.
5' Narsingh gets away down the right, but loses his balance at the vital moment and his cross is wild. Encouraging start from the home team though.
L. Fer
Yellow Card
2' Fer jumps into Lossl after a great driving run down the right, and having done extremely well to keep the ball in play. What a waste of a good situation.
1' And we're off! Huddersfield kick off at the Liberty Stadium.
This is the first-ever top-flight meeting between Swansea City and Huddersfield Town, and the 92nd fixture to have been played in all four tiers of English football.
And the home side come up against a keeper in form in Jonas Lossl, who has four clean sheets so far this season - only David de Gea has more with six.
However, Swansea have been particularly goal-shy themselves this season, having registered the fewest shots in the league (46), with just 30 coming from open play, and registering only 11 shots on target.
Huddersfield's Tom Ince can't be blamed for a lack of effort, however, having attempted 20 shots in the league without scoring - only Nathan Redmond (23) has more without a goal. 
In fact, Huddersfield have failed to score in nine of their last 14 games in all competitions, and are goalless in their last three. The last time they failed to score in four consecutive competitive games was in 2004.
Visitors Huddersfield won their opening two fixtures on the trot, but have not won again since beating Rotherham United in the League Cup on August 23.
Swansea have won just one game so far this season - away to Crystal Palace, yet to register a point or a goal - and sit in the relegation zone, behind Leicester City on goal difference. The Swans have shown particularly poor home form so far this season, having been beaten in each of their three games at the Liberty Stadium, but will look to turn that around here.
Aaron Mooy is rested after reaching the World Cup playoffs with Australia - winning a tense second-leg tie against Syria in extra-time. Danny Williams joins him on the bench, having recovered from a foot injury.  However, Collin Quaner (calf), Kasey Palmer (hamstring), and Micheal Hefele (Achilles) all remain sidelined. 
The home side are boosted, however, by the return to fitness of Nathan Dyer (Achilles) and Ki Sung-Yueng (knee), who both make the bench.
Swansea are without two of their three high-profile summer additions in Wilfried Bony (calf/hamstring) and Renato Sanches (thigh), and make two changes from their previous game, with Luciano Narsingh and Leroy Fer coming in to replace the aforementioned duo.
Huddersfield substitutes: Coleman, Mooy, Lowe, Sabiri, Cranie, Hadergjonaj, Williams
Huddersfield XI (4-2-3-1): Lossl; Malone, Schindler, Zanka, Smith; Hogg, Billing; Ince, van La Parra, Kachunga; Depoitre
Swansea substitutes: Nordfeldt, van der Hoorn, Routledge, Ki, Rangel, Clucas, Dyer
Swansea XI (4-3-3): Fabianski; Olsson, Mawson, Fernandez, Naughton; Carroll, Britton, Fer; Narsingh, Abraham, Ayew
The line-ups are out, so let's start with the home side.
