Team news | Swansea City v Blackpool

20th November 2021
First team
Ben Cabango

Ben Cabango makes his first start since the win over West Brom as the sole change for the visit of Blackpool.

The Wales international takes the place of Ryan Bennett, who misses out through suspension after picking up five bookings this season.

That is the only alteration from the side that started last time out at Bournemouth.

It means Ben Hamer continues in goal, while Cabango joins Ryan Manning and Kyle Naughton in a three-man defence.

Ethan Laird and Jake Bidwell continue as the wing-backs, while Flynn Downes partners skipper Matt Grimes in midfield.

Olivier Ntcham and Jamie Paterson provide support to striker Joel Piroe in attack.
