Scans have revealed a grade two hamstring strain for Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis, giving him a three to four week timetable for recovery.
Gomis came off the pitch last weekend in the Swans match against Everton after seventeen minutes, with Marvin Emnes replacing him. Nelson Oliveira and Emnes are the two candidates to fill in for Gomis, as Oliveira has recovered from his own injury to give Garry Monk a selection decision. The uncertainty of who will be selected means any thought of investing in a budget forward option here too risky. Monk may use the situation to alternate starts between the two, as both have logged very few minutes in league play on the season. Whoever gets the start against Leicester though, has the opportunity to perform well enough to stay there for the next few matches. Apr 17 - 10:59 AM
