PREVIEW: SWANSEA CITY (H)

7 March 2018

Sponsored by

Town’s next Premier League outing comes in the form of Swansea City at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Since Carlos Carvalhal’s arrival in South Wales, the Swans has picked up 17 points from nine league games, five more than under predecessor Paul Clement managed in the first 18 games of the season.

The Welsh side come into the game on the back of a 4-1 victory over West Ham at the Liberty Stadium. Goals from Ki Sung-Yeung, Mike Van Der Hoorn, Andy King and a Jordan Ayew penalty capped off an emphatic performance to lift the Swans up to 13th in the table.

FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE-FORM

KI SUNG-YEUNG
Form: 8.7

With two goals and two assists in his last four games, the South Korean midfielder's form has been a key part of Swansea’s charge up the table. The former Celtic man has played the full 90 minutes in his last seven Premier League games.

Kyle Naughton
Form: 4.3

Pacey full back Kyle Naughton has been an ever present under his new manager since serving a three-game suspension for violent conduct. The Yorkshire born defender provided the assist for Ki’s winner against Burnley and provides a constant threat from the right-hand side.

Jordan Ayew
Form: 3.7

The Ghanaian international has picked up 40 FPL points in the nine game weeks since Carlos Carvalhal took charge in December. The pacey frontman has helped himself to six goals and two assists in the Premier League this season and is Swansea’s top goal scorer in all competitions.
