Team News

  • Philippe Senderos was given the nod over Aaron Hughes last time out and could keep his place alongside Brede Hangeland.
  • Bryan Ruiz made his comeback from injury from the bench and could start this weekend, with Berbatov moving further forward and Rodallega dropping to the bench.
  • Elsewhere the likes of Duff, Diarra and Petric are all still doubts having missed the last few games through injury.
  • Swansea could be without a trio of Spaniards this weekend, with Michu a real doubt having picked up an ankle injury against Reading.
  • Laudrup will therefore be hoping that Pablo Hernandez is fit enough to make the trip to Fulham, while Angel Rangel could continue to miss out, with Dwight Tiendalli keeping his place at right-back.
  • If Michu is out there will be a three-way contest for the spot up front between Graham, Moore and Shechter.

Prediction

  • Swansea did the double over Fulham last season without conceding a goal in either match and the Welsh outfit's 0-3 win at Craven Cottage was Jol's side's second worst home defeat in 2011/12 (only behind United - 0-5).
  • The Cottagers have won just 1 of their last 11 league games and are sliding into a relegation battle, though the return of Bryan Ruiz will be a huge boost to the side while the visitors are sweating on the fitness of a number of key players.
  • Swansea's away form has improved this season though, so this should be a close game with the hosts in desperate need of points sooner rather than later.

  • 2-2 i bet

  • michu might not play, even if he does, home win here, sidwell, ruiz back in the lineup + berbatov, and rodallega coming off the bench, too much fire power for home side. i say 1-0. Fulham.

  • Fulham 1-2 Swansea, michu will get a double.
