Sanches and Bony to miss United tie

Renato Sanches and Wilfried Bony will miss out when Swansea City take on Manchester United in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

Sanches picked up a thigh problem during Saturday’s defeat to Leicester, while Bony is not yet ready to return from the hamstring issue which has kept him out of the last two Premier League games.

“Wilfried will not be fit,” said boss Paul Clement, “and Renato came off against Leicester with an injury to his thigh.

“It is not the same one that he had while he was the national team (earlier this month), but it will keep him out of this game and possibly at the weekend as well.”

The Swans go to Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday.

As well as Bony and Sanches, Kyle Bartley remains on the treatment table.
