Swansea vs Crystal Palace – Premier League preview and team news

Crystal Palace will be looking to build on their superb win over Liverpool last time out when they play Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

Home boss Garry Monk was very pleased with his side despite losing their last game to Manchester City, where the decisive goal came in the closing stages.

The goal they scored to take the lead early on was of real quality, and all the signs from Swansea this season suggest they can finish in a very respectable position. Their home record is also very strong, while Wilfried Bony has hit top form after a slow start in front of goal this time around.

It looked set to be another disappointing day for Palace when they went behind so early on Sunday, but their response was perfect, with the lively Yannick Bolasie causing Liverpool problems throughout.

The win also came at a great time, with the club having fallen into the relegation zone the previous day, while the performance proved that they are still very capable of competing strongly in the top-flight, but this will be a tough test.

Swansea could go with the same team which started at the Etihad Stadium, but are still without defenders Federico Fernandez and Ashley Richards.

The visitors have almost a fully-fit squad available for this match, but are without the services of Damien Delaney for at least two weeks because of a calf injury.
