Kyle Naughton, who missed Week 8 due to the birth of his daughter, was available for selection for Week 9, but veteran Angel Rangel got the start again at right back.
This is a situation worth monitoring for fantasy managers. Naughton, who immediately took the right back job from Rangel when he arrived last winter and ran with it, is in a battle with the veteran, who has stuck with the Swans for nearly a decade now, helping the Jacks rise to top flight status. The betting money would be on Naughton eventually reclaiming the spot, but those looking for a budget defensive play, Rangel may provide some value in the short term. Tue, Oct 20, 2015 02:54:00 PM

Neil Taylor is one yellow card away from a suspension that will see him miss two games and likely open the door for Angel Rangel who lost his place to Kyle Naughton.

The tenth yellow card of the season seems inevitable for Taylor with nine games left to go. Kyle Naughton has experience at left back and will likely make the switch to allow Rangel an opportunity to see the pitch as the tea leaves right now point toward an exit this summer for the Spaniard. Perhaps he can show himself well in his chance and spark the interest of a few suitors. Just north of 7m at the moment, another non-appearance should knock him down into the 6m bracket.

Angel Rangel, a steady figure at right back for Swansea City since 2007, appears to have finally fallen out of favor to winter signing Kyle Naughton.

Rangel was one of the original Swans to guide the club to promotion in 2011, and at the time was part of a major Spanish influence on the squad, as Michu, Pablo Hernandez and Chico would all become key figures in the top flight. Rangel is now the last remaining Spaniard from the bunch, not counting Michu's loan spell, but it appears both may be heading away from the Liberty Stadium this summer. Naughton should be viewed as a safe bet to make the XI regularly until form or injury dictate otherwise.

On a day when they were clearly not their best, Swansea City still managed to earn a point on the road despite going down to 10 men for the final ten minutes in a 0-0 stalemate with Sunderland.

There was sloppy play from both sides throughout the contest, but Swansea will likely be content with the result after Sunderland starting putting serious pressure on them because of the man advantage and the switch to Steven Fletcher which occurred moments before the Rangel red. Nathan Dyer was once again a bright spot in the Swansea attack and seems to carry more threat than Gylfi Sigurdsson in recent weeks. Sitting 4th in the table after a half dozen games, Garry Monk has to be feeling pretty good despite a somewhat ugly affair today.

Angel Rangel picked up a knock during Swansea City's defeat of Aston Villa, forcing him to exit the game early.

There is no detail into the Rangel injury yet, but some light should be shed in the next couple of days. Dwight Tiendalli stands to benefit should Rangel miss any time. Garry Monk can afford to rest any players he needs to as their victory yesterday guaranteed their place in the top flight for the 2014/2015 season.

Angel Rangel will continue to be sidelined for another two to three weeks for Swansea City, according to an update by their official website.

Dwight Tiendalli should continue to fill in at right back during Rangel's absence and offers a budget alternative into Swansea's defense. Swansea have not been keeping it tight recently however, averaging two goals a game conceded over the last four.

Angel Rangel limped off near the end of Swansea City's match with Valencia, getting treatment on the sideline until the final whistle with an apparent calf injury.

The severity of Rangel's injury has yet to be determined, but he must be considered a doubt for the Swans' trip to Manchester City this weekend. Dwight Tiendalli would likely deputize at right back should Rangel miss out. Investment in Swansea defense is not recommended this weekend.
