Team news | West Brom v Swansea City

8th December 2019
First team
Fulham Sam Surridge

Swansea City name an unchanged starting line-up for Sunday’s lunchtime kick-off against West Brom.

Head coach Steve Cooper sticks with the same team that kicked off the defeat to Fulham last time out, but there are two amendments on the bench.

Aldo Kalulu is in line for his first appearance in three months, while Nathan Dyer also returns to the matchday squad as Borja Baston and Bersant Celina drop out.

That means Freddie Woodman continues in goal with Connor Roberts and Kyle Naughton the two full-backs.

Mike van der Hoorn partners Ben Wilmot in defence, while Matt Grimes and Jay Fulton pair up again in midfield.

George Byers – on the scoresheet last time out – takes the number 10 role with Andre Ayew and Kristoffer Peterson on the flanks.

Sam Surridge leads the line for the visitors, while the Baggies are unchanged from their win at Preston on Monday.

West Brom: Sam Johnstone, Nathan Ferguson, Kyle Bartley, Semi Ajayi, Kieran Gibbs, Romaine Sawyers, Jake Livermore (captain), Matt Phillips, Matheus Pereira, Grady Diangana, Hal Robson-Kanu.

Substitutes: Jonathan Bond, Ahmed Hegazi, Darnell Furlong, Filip Krovinovic, Gareth Barry, Kyle Edwards, Charlie Austin.
