Fulham vs Swansea Premier League Preview

December 29, 2012


Fulham and Swansea City will both be aiming to address dips in form when they meet at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Martin Jol's hosts have worryingly won just once in 11 Premier League games which has seen them slip to 14th in the table.

Michael Laudrup's Swansea, meanwhile, have enjoyed a good season and sit in the top half of the table but they have failed to win in their past four matches. 

The Welsh club, who drew at Reading last time out, will therefore hope for a repeat of last season, when they won home and away against Fulham without conceding a goal. 

Fulham, though, will be boosted by the news Swansea forward Michu may be missing through injury, which would give them one less concern. 

The London club will themselves hope their own star striker, Dimitar Berbatov, can work his magic, although the Bulgarian's goals have only won three points this season.



Fulham's Bryan Ruiz has been passed fit to start against Swansea City on Saturday. 

The Costa Rica international made his return from a hamstring injury in the 1-1 draw with Southampton, playing the entire second half on Boxing Day. 

Mahamadou Diarra and Mladen Petric are doubts to face Swansea, while Damien Duff could miss out again.


Swansea have concerns over star forward Michu and he could be replaced by Itay Shechter having suffered an ankle injury in the stalemate with Reading. 

Boss Michael Laudrup could welcome back influential midfielder Pablo Hernandez from a thigh problem but Angel Rangel is not thought to be quite ready after his calf injury.
