Wilfried Bony has been ruled out of Swansea City’s festive clashes with Crystal Palace and Liverpool with a hamstring injury.

And the Swans striker is also doubtful for the trip to Watford on December 30.

Bony limped off in the first few minutes of Monday’s defeat at Everton, and scans have revealed a minor hamstring injury.

“Wilfried has a hamstring strain which will keep him out for seven to 10 days,” said caretaker boss Leon Britton.

“We will see how he goes with that. He may be available for Watford, but that’s an outside chance.”

The Swans are hoping Ki Sung-Yueng will come back into contention for the Palace game after he missed out at Everton with a calf problem.

They are also monitoring Leroy Fer after he suffered a blow to his back at Goodison Park.

Britton, meantime, revealed he is not available for Palace because of a calf strain.
