After picking apart Valencia in the Europa League midweek, Swansea look to roll the momentum over to the Premier League this weekend as they take to the road and visit Crystal Palace.
A 3-0 victory for Michael Laudrup’s Swans in the Mestalla saw Michu, Wilfried Bony, and Jonathan De Guzman all knock in goals. Today, only one of those goalscorers – Michu – gets the start as the other two will be substitute options today. Spain’s U-21 striker Alvaro Vazquez gets the start up top.
For Crystal Palace, it’s been a roller coaster ride for Ian Holloway’s side, and he chooses to place both Cameron Jerome and Marouane Chamakh at the front as Kevin Phillips sits. Holloway will be searching for his second Premier League win this season to be placed amid three defeats.
Crystal Palace – Speroni; Mariappa, Gabbidon, Delaney, Moxey; Jedinak, Guedioura, Bannan, Puncheon; Jerome, Chamakh.
Bench – Alexander, Campana, Kebe, Thomas, Gayle, Phillips, O’Keefe.
Swansea – Vorm; Rangel, Chico Flores, Williams, Davies; Canas, Shelvey; Michu, Dyer, Routledge; Vazquez.
Bench – Tremmel, Amat, Tiendalli, Britton, De Guzman, Pozuelo, Bony.
