Swansea City will be welcoming 11th placed Burnley on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium in match week 27 of the Premier League.
The Swans are involved in the battle to survive relegation and are currently placed in 16th position, two points above the drop zone. They will be coming into this game having tasted defeat at the hands of Chelsea last weekend and will be hoping to get a better outcome this time around against Sean Dyche’s men who haven’t had the best time away from home.
The Welsh outfit got the better of the Clarets the last time these two met at the Turf Moor on the first day of the season, defeating them 1-0. And they will be hoping for a similar result on Saturday. Manager Paul Clement will be without the services of wingers Nathan Dyer and Jefferson Montero while midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung is also unavailable for selection. However, Clement will not look to change much as he looks to find a stable XI in a bid to fight their relegation battles.
