Swansea City: Looking for overdue home win against Bournemouth

Swansea City must improve on a dreadful recent record at Norwich City if they are to turn around their poor Premier League form.

Team news

Norwich are without Russell Martin following his sending-off against Manchester City last weekend, while Matt Jarvis faces several weeks out with a knee injury.

Dieumerci Mbokani and Andre Wisdom, however, are available for Alex Neil’s side following illness and a knee injury respectively.

Swansea have no new injury worries ahead of the game, but Garry Monk may opt to make changes anyway with Wayne Routledge fit after a recent calf injury.
