Swansea v Norwich – Match Preview
Both sides have been on an impressive runs as they look to put these on the line in an exciting fixture at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea have gone unbeaten for the last six Premier League games, and three victories in their last four outings has put them within touching distance of the top four. The Swans have managed victories against Newcastle and Arsenal, in this run winning both 2-0, with last weekend’s victory at the Emirates in particular, catching the eye of many.
It has also been over 2 months since Michael Laudrup’s men conceded over a goal in a Premier League outing, which is ominous for opposing teams as Swansea tighten up at the back.
For Norwich their slow start to the campaign is a distant memory with Chris Hughton’s side stringing together an eight-game run undefeated.
If the Canaries can secure a result and others go their way they could surge into the top 10 and this could also mean an unprecedented unbeaten run of nine matches – a new Premier League record for the club.
Norwich will have Sebastien Bassong fit and available after the defender suffered a knock late on against Sunderland. The injury list at Carrow Road does consist of John Ruddy however, who has undergone a thigh operation and faces up to three months out while defender Michael Turner (shoulder) and on-loan striker Harry Kane (metatarsal) will miss the clash.
Swansea are without goalkeeper Michel Vorm and Pablo Hernandez and with the team in good form there will be no rush to haul them back into the side.
Wayne Routledge could also return having recovered from a knock.
Danny Graham is surely set to feature having scored 6 goals in his last four outings against Norwich.
