The Swans have made quite a poor start to their Premier League campaign this season. They currently sit in 18th spot with just 5 points from their first 7 fixtures. Confidence in the team could be low since they will come into this match after a 1-0 loss against West Ham away from home.
However, they will play Huddersfield at home on Saturday. Swansea will enjoy the support of the home crowd, which should increase their determination to register a win.
Nathan Dyer is expected to start for Swansea City, and Ki Sung-Yueng is also back in contention. Wilfried Bony has been deemed fit to play, despite coming off early against West Ham United in the Club’s last Premier League fixture, whilst Kyle Bartley remains sidelined.
The goalkeeper’s displays in the goal have not been all that great but he is still expected to start against Huddersfield Town.
The defence should remain unchanged. Naughton’s main duty will be to neutralise any threat posed by the visitors.
The onus will definitely be on Fernandez and his defensive capabilities to prevent Huddersfield from getting close to the net.
Mawson will join Fernandez since the duo has established a strong partnership at the back.
Olsson should complete the back line at left-back. He will be responsible for supplying power while going forward.
Fer is expected to be deployed in his usual role. He will be important in orchestrating attacks, and also supplying chances for the men up front.
Undoubtedly, Sanches will be a key player for Swansea. Although his performances have been sub-par so far, he has the potential to do a lot better. If he can get things going in the midfield, the Swans have a good chance of extracting a positive result.
Carroll will be a crucial player when it comes to counter-attacking plays. Also, he will be responsible for establishing control over the midfield area.
Ayew is expected to continue on the left wing. The player will be crucial when it comes to the build-up of the play. He can create sneaky chances to put Swansea on top.
Bony is likely to be deployed on the right wing. The player will have to link up well with Ayew and supply chances and support for Abraham.
Tammy Abraham will certainly be the Swans’ main threat going forward. His displays have been lacklustre but against Huddersfield, the forward has a good chance of scoring.
