Team news | Swansea City v West Brom

20th October 2021
First team
Ben Cabango

Russell Martin makes one change to his starting XI as Swansea City host West Brom in the Championship.

From the team that beat Cardiff City last time out, Ben Cabango comes into defence in place of Ryan Manning, who sits this one out as the injury which forced his return from international duty is being managed.

That means Ben Hamer continues in goal after keeping another clean sheet - the Swans top the charts with seven this season - with Ryan Bennett and Kyle Naughton alongside Cabango.

Captain Matt Grimes is partnered by Flynn Downes in midfield with Jake Bidwell, who scored the third goal on Sunday, and Ethan Laird providing the support out wide.

Derby day hero Jamie Paterson, fresh from a man-of-the-match display that included one goal and two assists, and Korey Smith sit behind top scorer Joel Piroe as the Swans seek consecutive league victories for the first time under Martin.

On the bench, Rhys Williams returns after missing the win last weekend.

Swansea City: Ben Hamer, Ryan Bennett, Kyle Naughton, Ben Cabango, Ethan Laird, Matt Grimes (capt), Flynn Downes, Jake Bidwell, Korey Smith, Jamie Paterson, Joel Piroe.

Subs: Steven Benda, Rhys Williams, Joel Latibeaudiere. Liam Walsh, Olivier Ntcham, Morgan Whittaker, Liam Cullen.


West Brom: Sam Johnstone, Darnell Furlong, Conor Townsend, Kyle Bartley, Semi Ajayi, Callum Robinson, Jake Livermore (capt), Matty Phillips, Jayson Molumby, Matty Clarke, Karlan Grant.

Subs: David Button, Jordon Hugill, Adam Reach, Cedric Kipre, Kean Bryan, Robert Snodgrass, Taylor Gardner-Hickman.
