Michu and Wilfried Bony are still struggling with injury so Alvaro Vazquez maintains his spot up front for Swansea. Along with the Spaniard, who is yet to get his first Premier League goal this season, the rest of the team remains unchanged from their 3-0 away defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, apart from Michel Vorm who returns between the sticks.
Alan Pardew has seen fit to make no changes to a Newcastle starting XI that recorded a 2-1 win over West Brom on Saturday. They are expected to play a 4-4-2 whilst the Swans stick with their traditional 4-2-3-1.
Swansea City lineup: Vorm; Tiendalli, Chico, Williams (c), Davies; Canas, de Guzman, Shelvey, Pozuelo, Hernandez; Vazquez.
Newcastle United lineup: Krul; Debuchy, Williamson, Coloccini (c), Santon; Sissoko, Tiote, Cabaye, Gouffran; Shola Ameobi, Remy.
