Wilfried Bony was sent off during Swansea's 1-0 loss to Southampton.

Bony was supposed to be a great fantasy play this weekend but the striker got himself recklessly sent off after receiving a second yellow. Bony will now miss the next match with a suspension, putting more pressure on Gylfi Sigurdsson to create and score. Swansea started the season red hot but have cooled down after losing their last two matches. They now sit in fifth place with nine points but are bound to go down by the time the weekend finishes.

Jonjo Shelvey was the latest productive midfielder for Swansea City, scoring an away goal iin the Swans' 4-2 loss to Chelsea and contributing to several fantasy categories.

The first three weeks in which Swansea secured the maximum nine points was due almost exclusively to the play of Nathan Dyer and Gylfi Sigurdsson but while that duo had a quiet day at Stamford Bridge, Shelvey opened his account on the season and chipped in with a handful of tackles won and passes intercepted. Sigurdsson is remains the preferred option in fantasy, and is still cheaper than Shelvey in the Yahoo game but expect the occasional haul from the Englishman.

Swansea City lose a thriller at Stamford Bridge while defender Jordi Amat faces a spell on the sidelines as injury forces his early withdrawal.

The build-up to Saturday’s game was dominated by one man Diego Costa - hamstring injury - but once the Spanish international had been given the all clear; it was a case of ‘normal service has resumed’ for the Barclays Player of Month who grabbed a quick-fire hat trick. However Garry Monk won’t be too despondent about his side’s performance after their "power and quality" began to take a stranglehold during the second half although the injury to his full-back Jordi Amat will be a concern. The Swansea defender left the ground in a protective knee brace as a precaution and will have a scan to diagnose the full extent of the problem – new signing Frederico Fernandez provides a natural replacement.

Swansea forward Rory Donnelly has been ruled out until November.

The forward is struggling with an ankle issue and is out for an extended period of time. He is not a fantasy option regardless of injury status as he hasn't earned a first team spot and is behind several plays on the pecking order.

Swansea City have agree to send midfielder Jose Canas to La Liga side Espanyol on a free transfer.

The Spanish defensive midfielder heads back to La Liga after just a year spent in the Premier League. Current boss Garry Monk did not have plans for him and with former manager Michael Laudrup having signed him originally on a free transfer, the experiment didn't hurt the club financially, but moving him does take some wages off the ledger. The heavy Spanish influence that permeated through South Wales when the Swans were promoted a few years back has essentially dwindled down to just Angel Rangel and Jordi Amat.

Swansea's dream start to the season continued with an easy 3-0 win over West Brom that featured a Nathan Dyer brace.

Nathan Dyer scored his first just seconds after the opening whistle from a Gylfi Sigurdsson backheel. Wayne Routledge scored a crazy jumping side volley for the Swans second. Dyer completed the scoring in the second half when he beat Ben Foster to his near side. Wilfried Bony should have scored as well seeing one great chance go over the bar and another kept out of the goal by a defender's arm without it being called.

Swansea City have signed Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Carroll on a season-long loan.

22-year-old Carroll is highly rated at White Hart Lane but is not yet able to break in to the first team, so new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has also allowed him to move on loan to gain experience. The midfielder spent last season on loan at Queens Park Rangers and made 26 appearances as the Londoners won the Championship Play-Off final to return to the Premier League. Swansea are currently without injured pair Leon Britton and Jay Fulton, so Carroll will boost their midfield options.

A first half goal from Nathan Dyer was all that was needed to give Swansea City their second consecutive win to start the season, as they hold off several late flurries by Burnley to win 1-0.

Things are looking up at the Liberty Stadium in the early going. Sure, it was Burnley, but there have been plenty of underdogs giving their favored opponents fits already this season. It was a sweet through ball from Gylfi Sigurdsson that found Dyer using his pace to streak down the right and fire the ball in. Wilfried Bony didn't make the score sheet, but had his share of chances. The defense had little to do through the first hour as Swansea dominated possession, but as they game wound down, Burnley gave them a proper test and the Swans passed it.

Swansea's Wilfried Bony could open his 2014/15 goalscoring account against Burnley this weekend.

Swansea have done well to hold on to Bony over the summer and assuming they can keep him past 31st August (transfer deadline day) the striker will be key to ensuring Garry Monk's side avoid any sort of relegation battle. He put in a slightly disappointing display against Manchester United but we're tipping him to have a much bigger impact at home to Burnley.
Aug 22 - 4:33 AM

Gylfi Sigurdsson is well worth considering for Week 2 given his opening weekend performance, and his fixture against Burnley.

Boss Garry Monk allowed Sigurdsson the freedom to roam just behind Wilfried Bony and this led to him causing the Manchester United defence all sorts of problems, as he grabbed an assist, a match-winning goal and a whole load of Yahoo fantasy points. That was at Old Trafford, so you have to wonder what the set piece specialist may be capable of at home to Burnley in Week Two.
Aug 22 - 4:29 AM

Swansea's newest signing, Federico Fernandez, is a doubt to make his debut against Burnley this weekend, as he continues to wait for international clearance.

The old "international clearance" hurdle claims another potential victim. Fernandez will likely not feature this weekend, and considering the Swans got a positive result at Old Trafford last weekend, it may be in Garry Monk's best interests to reward Jordi Amat another start before Fernandez inevitably takes over.
Aug 21 - 10:44 AM

For the second time in as many days, an Argentine international defender has joined the ranks of Premier League players as center back Federico Fernandez officially joined Swansea.

With the departure of Chico Flores, Swansea have been in the market for a new starting center back and Fernandez's name has been linked to the club for a number of weeks. With the deal now official Swansea can start to feel comfortable that they have a strong central pairing of Fernandez and Ashley Williams. Fernandez featured four times for World Cup runners up Argentina this past summer and now makes his move from Napoli to Swansea. He should be a starter as soon as Gary Monk feels he has sufficient time in training.

Swansea City spoil Manchester United's home opener with a 1-2 win over the Red Devils, led by a goal and an assist from Gylfi Sigurdsson.

They say you can never go home again, but don't tell Sigurdsson that. After making a huge splash in his initial go around with the Swans, Siggy picked up right where he left off, excelling in his central attacking role. He was given too much room to operate by the United defense, and he made the hosts pay. He cued up a wide open Ki Sung-Yueng for the opening goal in the first half, then scored himself a game-winner in the second half after United had leveled things. This opening fixture kept many a fantasy manager away from considering Swansea players, but starting Week 2 they have some very attractive opponents and managers should now have plenty of reason and confidence to invest in them.

Pablo Hernandez is the latest Swansea City man to leave the Liberty Stadium and join the Qatari Starts League as he signs for Al-Arabi.

Chico Flores and Michael Laudrup have already reunited with another club in the same league, Lekhwiya, who were the champions of the Qatari Stars League last season. Hernandez had fallen out of favor under Garry Monk and a move in the summer window was always in the cards.
Aug 14 - 8:05 PM

Garry Monk will have a couple of extra weapons out wide available to him as Swansea City prepare for the unenviable task of opening their season at Old Trafford.

Both Nathan Dyer, who has generally been a regular, and Wayne Routledge are ready to go this Saturday, though from a fantasy perspective there is not much optimism in using either for Week 1. Outside of Wilfried Bony, who is capable of scoring anywhere, and Gylfi Sigursson, who looks to recreate the magic he displayed in his first go around with the Swans, there is no one else that comes close to appearing on our radars until at least Week 2 when they host Burnley.
