Swansea face a defensive dilemma with Frederico Fernandez and Kyle Bartley both at risk of missing the Chelsea game.
Speaking on Thursday, manager Carlos Carvalhal revealed: "We have situations with two players who are having scans this afternoon – Federico Fernandez and Kyle Bartley. We don’t know about them yet. We have good expectations, but we must be sure when we see the scans." The pair suffered knee injuries this week and a decision on their involvement will be left until the last moment. Fernandez was forced off at The Etihad after taking a kick while Bartley "stretched the internal ligaments" during a training session on Wednesday. "Sometimes players have pain, but it is nothing mechanical and they can play, so let’s see." Swansea released pictures of the squad preparing for the match yesterday, but neither player was seen. If they miss out, then Carvalhal will have to ditch his preferred five-man defence and switch to a flat back four with Alfie Mawson and Mike van der Hoorn playing centrally. Apr 28 - 6:25 AM
