Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is expected to stick with the same side that were beaten by Manchester United, despite doubts lingering over Michu’s hamstring. Goalkeeper Michel Vorm and midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung are absent.
Fulham are expected to have Kieron Richardson fit as they head to south Wales with no fresh injury worries. Steve Sidwell sits out the final match of a four-game ban.
Michael Laudrup… “That’s a problem isn’t it — how can you better this? It’s nearly impossible. That is the only downside of this season — that is it almost impossible to do better. You always have to try to find a mark, and a mark for this club, with the lowest budget in the Premier League, is to try to consolidate in mid-table. I know it sounds a little bit arrogant for a club with our budget to try to do that.”
Martin Jol…“I signed an option and that is a long time ago, ages ago. For me, there is no difference. It is not something from the last 48 hours as [the speculation] happened before. If people make up a little story and I speak about new players coming in, of course you need a little bit of money. They associate us with the chairman and he has to give us the funds, but we are a healthy club. We will try to get some players in so there is no story.”
Match Statistic: 11 of the 14 Premier League goals Dimitar Berbatov has scored this season have come before half-time.
