Leave a comment

A pair of Swansea City players have suffered serious injuries and will miss the remainder of the season.

Striker Wilfried Bony and midfielder Leroy Fer will not feature the rest of the way as Swans attempt to stay clear of the drop zone.

Bony has torn his ACL, while Fer has ruptured his achilles. Both will require surgery.

In Bony’s case, Swansea says he suffered the injury early in his 19 minute substitute appearance Saturday but played through it.

Swans did buy striker Andre Ayew from West Ham in the transfer window, though they let Oliver McBurnie take a loan to Barnsley.

Fer had played 20 league matches with a goal and an assist for Swans, while Bony has played 14 PL matches with a pair of goals.

Swansea City’s bid to slow down steamrolling Liverpool begins at 3 p.m. ET Monday at the Liberty Stadium (Watch live on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).

WATCH LIVE, ONLINE, HERE

The rampaging Reds are coming off a 4-3 win that ended Manchester City’s unbeaten Premier League season, and will hope to avoid a let down against desperate Swans.

The Welsh hosts are six points adrift in the race for Premier League safety, and look set for a 5-4-1 with Jordan Ayew the only forward. Wilfried Bony and Oliver McBurnie are on the bench along with attack-minded Luciano Narsingh.

LINEUPS

Swansea City: Fabianski, Naughton, Van der Hoorn, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Ki, Fer, Clucas, Dyer, Ayew. Subs: Nordfeldt, Bartley, Roque Mesa, Carroll, Narsingh, McBurnie, Bony.

Liverpool: Karius, Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Can, Wijnaldum, Salah, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Firmino. Subs: Mignolet, Milner, Klavan, Lallana, Ings, Solanke, Alexander-Arnold.

Watford 1-2 Swansea: Carvalhal gets shock comeback W

Leave a comment
  • Swans win Carvalhal’s debut
  • Watford led 1-0 into 85th
  • Ayew, Narsingh score late

Luciano Narsingh was on the doorstep to poke home a late rebound as Swansea City came back to beat Watford 2-1 in Carlos Carvalhal’s first match as Swans manager.

Andre Carrillo put Watford ahead at Vicarage Road, but the Hornets found another way to lose when Jordan Ayew and Narsingh both scored in the final five minutes.

Swansea is in 19th place with 16 points, just two back of safety, while Watford’s 25 points have them 10th.

It didn’t take long for new boss Carlos Carvalhal to feel what Paul Clement, Bob Bradley, and Francesco Guidolin have felt: concession.

Richarlison forced Lukasz Fabianski into a save, but Carrillo was right there to deposit the rebound for 1-0 after 11 minutes.

Molla Wague looked to have a goal in his second-straight match, but his headed goal was nullified by a borderline foul in the 18.

And Richarlison cued up Andre Gray for a late 1v1 that he cranked directly at Fabianski.

That’s about when Swans started Hornets heads spinning, with Ayew tapped in from Oliver McBurnie‘s assist and Narsingh passing a rebound home four minutes later.

Liverpool 5-0 Swansea City: Boxing Day Blowout

Leave a comment
  • Coutinho scores beauty (video)
  • Firmino scores two
  • Salah with two assists
  • Reds out shoot Swans 20-6

Philippe Coutinho had a goal and an assist as Liverpool handled Swansea City 5-0 on Boxing Day at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino scored twice, and Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also scored for the Reds, the latter goal a pretty nice one at that.

The win pushes Liverpool back into the Top Four, while Swansea City remains dead last.

Liverpool went ahead in the sixth minute through typical Coutinho magic. Roberto Firmino took the ball away from Jordan Ayew, and Mohamed Salah cued up the Brazilian scorer for a vicious curler from well outside the 18.

The game’s next chance saw Ayew force Simon Mignolet into a save on a ninth minute header.

Young Swans striker Oliver McBurnie produced a couple decent moments for the visitors in the first half in a surprise start, though Mignolet wasn’t really tested by the Leeds-born 21-year-old.

Salah took a cut pass from Firmino and worked around Federico Fernandez to test Fabianski in the 50th minute.

Firmino got his goal just over a minute later, running onto a Coutinho free kick and beating Fabianski to his right.

Alexander-Arnold ran onto a blocked shot and burst his shot past a flailing Fabianski to make it 3-0, before Firmino and Oxlade-Chamberlain supplied the final markers.
