Ki Sung-Yeung: Blasted by manager

Swansea City have won only one of their seven Premier League games against Norwich City going into Saturday’s latest clash at the Liberty Stadium.

Team news

Ki Sung-yueng and Leroy Fer should be available for Swansea despite going off with injuries in the midweek win at Arsenal, but Francesco Guidolin is not expected to return to the dugout as he continues his recovery from a chest infection.

Norwich midfielder Alex Tettey could miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury, but Robbie Brady and Gary O’Neil should both be available despite their clash of heads in the defeat to Chelsea.

Steven Naismith is likely to return to the squad after a rest, as well Sebastien Bassong and on-loan Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford, who was ineligible to face his parent club. Andre Wisdom remains out with a knee problem.
