Ben Cabango makes his 100th Swansea City appearance as Russell Martin names an unchanged side to face Bournemouth.

Wales international brings up his century, having made his debut for the Swans in a League Cup tie against Northampton back in August 2019.

Youngster Joel Cotterill is named in a senior matchday squad for the first time as the 17-year-old is handed a place among the substitutes.

Andy Fisher continues in goal, with Cabango again joining Kyle Naughton and Joel Latibeaudiere in the Swansea back three.

Ryan Manning and Cyrus Christie are the wing-backs, with Flynn Downes and skipper Matt Grimes again paired together in midfield.

Hannes Wolf and Joel Piroe will join Michael Obafemi at the top end of the field for the Swans.

Cotterill is joined by fellow teenager Cameron Congreve on the bench, but Olivier Ntcham and Jamie Paterson miss out.

The visitors include former Swans Ethan Laird and Jamal Lowe in their starting line-up, with Freddie Woodman on the bench.
