PREM: Swansea City v Stoke City preview


Swansea City v Stoke City preview

Wayne Routledge misses Swansea's Premier League home game against Stoke with a hernia problem which may require surgery.


Jack Cork is also absent again with an ankle injury, and a reshaped midfield is likely to see either club captain Leon Britton or Tom Carroll get the nod over Jay Fulton after last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Watford.

Relegation-threatened Swansea will make a late decision on top scorer Fernando Llorente, who has been troubled by ankle and leg injuries in recent weeks, with Jordan Ayew standing by.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes is hopeful of having midfield duo Joe Allen and Glenn Whelan back available for the Premier League clash with Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

Allen, an ex-Swans player, and Whelan have trained this week after missing the victory over Hull last weekend due to a hamstring problem and virus respectively. Forward Jon Walters' knee issue is being monitored, but he should be fine to be involved.

Fit-again goalkeeper Jack Butland was an unused substitute against Hull, returning to the matchday squad for the first time in over a year, and Hughes has said there is "a possibility" he will play in the Swansea game.

Swansea (from): Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Ki, Carroll, Fer, Sigurdsson, Llorente, Narsingh, Nordfeldt, Kingsley, Amat, Van der Hoorn, Britton, Fulton, Montero, Ayew, McBurnie, Borja, Roberts.

Stoke (from): Grant, Butland, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Johnson, Pieters, Bardsley, Muniesa, Cameron, Whelan, Adam, Imbula, Allen, Shaqiri, Arnautovic, Sobhi, Walters, Crouch, Berahino, Diouf, Bony.
