2nd worst defence against 2nd best.... Sadly I think this will be another loss, or draw if we are lucky. We needed a defensive overhaul in the summer and didn’t get one. The midfield looks better now, especially with woods, but I still think that having Pieters, shawcross and Allen in there nullifies any positive change.
Shake a few things up, let some know they are not undroppable, and use the squad in a three game week.
Of course, he will pick the same XI as Saturday.......
Bojan? On what basis? I think Saido will play
On the basis that he is our most technically gifted footballer, is far more composed in front of goal than Diouf (not hard, I grant you) and we need goals from someone other than Afobe, and that he committed the opposition in a 10 minute cameo on Saturday more than the headless chicken Joe Allen had been doing all game before that.
Swans seem to have four midfield players missing including Fer who is a decent player so could be a good night to catch them if we can play well , just need to be more organised and rutheless with our finishing .
Amazingly Bony is injured for them!!!! We need take advantage of their own problems and get another win on the board. There was plenty to be positive about on Saturday but more basic errors will try our patience and that of the manager's.
