Francesco Guidolin could name an unchanged Swansea side for the Premier League visit of Liverpool as Federico Fernandez bids to return.
The under-fire Italian coach was heartened by an improved showing in City’s defeat to leaders Manchester City last weekend.
But Guidolin says he has “some problems” ahead of a game which he admits could prove decisive to him staying in a job with Swansea only one place above the relegation zone.
Centre-back Fernandez could be fit again after a groin strain and record signing Borja Baston’s wait for a first Premier League start is set to continue with the Spaniard expected to be on the bench once more.
Provisional squad: Fabianski, Rangel, Van der Hoorn, Amat, Naughton, Britton, Cork, Fer, Routledge, Sigurdsson, Llorente, Nordfeldt, Taylor, Kingsley, Mawson, Fernandez, Ki, Montero, Barrow, Fulton, McBurnie, Borja.
