Team News

  • After the FA Cup weekend - a break for the already knocked-out Sunderland - Martin O'Neill's squad should be fresh and ready for this game.
  • He will likely stick with the same starting XI as he fielded for the win over Wigan in their last Premier League outing, with new signing Alfred N'Diaye starring in a defensive midfield role.
  • Danny Rose, Carlos Cuellar (both hamstring) and Lee Cattermole (knee) are all on the road to recovery from injury; the latter has the best chance of featuring here but all are unlikely to make it.
  • Itay Shechter started up front in Swansea's last Premier League game, but Michu returned to the front line for their Capital One Cup Semi-Final against Chelsea, and is likely to start there once again.
  • Chico will be back in defence after missing the Stoke game.
  • Taylor, Situ and Agustien remain injured and will not play a part.

Prediction

  • Sunderland's recent run of 4 wins in their last 6 Premier League games has seen them climb up the table into 11th place and all but move the club out of the relegation battle that many expected them to be caught up in this season.
  • The Black Cats are now only 5 points behind their opponents here, Swansea, who themselves are unbeaten in 6 league games and have also made it through to the Capital One Cup final.
  • Swansea have drawn 2 of their last 3 away games in the league, conceding only 1 goal in the process, and once again will be difficult to break down here. 2 of these teams' 3 meetings in the Premier League have been drawn and we could see another stalemate here.
