Freddie Woodman continues in goal, while Kyle Naughton, Ben Cabango and Marc Guehi are again in defence for the Swans.

Connor Roberts and Ryan Manning continue as the wing-backs, with Hourihane joining skipper Matt Grimes, Jay Fulton and Korey Smith in what is expected to be a fluid midfield set-up.

Midweek match winner Andre Ayew will lead the line for the hosts, while Ryan Bennett is fit enough for a place on the bench after a calf injury.
