    Swansea City vs Fulham: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:
    puzuelo parker

    Swansea City (4-4-1-1): Tremmel, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies, Routledge, Amat, Britton, Lamah, Pozuelo, Bony

    Michael Laudrup’s side has suffered an injury crisis of late, but things are looking better with Pablo Hernandez and Nathan Dyer recovering well from their respective injuries.  Last year’s star man Michu is however still sidelined along with Dutch goalkeeper Michel Vorm.  The Swans will look to be more threatening in the final third after several games with an abundance of possession but no goals to show for it.

    Fulham (4-4-1-1): Stekelenburg, Riether, Hangeland, Burn, Richardson, Dejagah, Sidwell, Parker, Kacaniklic, Dempsey, Berbatov

    Buoyed by their league cup win over Norwich, Fulham will look to leapfrog Swansea with an almost complete squad.  Unlike Swansea, the Cottagers are battling for a place in the starting lineup but they will look to Dimitar Berbatov to get them on the score-sheet.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

    Remember this?

    Fulham were on the losing side against Swansea last time around and their reaction to Martin Jol wasn’t a happy one.

    The two teams have been under performing this season but Wilfried Bony has quietly been scoring the goals even though on the losing side.  The Ivorian has already scored against three of the top five this year (Man United, Man City, and Tottenham) and will be sniffing for the opportunity to add to his seven EPL goals this season.

    Stats to get your head around…
