Celina and Baston to lead the line? – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Swansea City XI to face Birmingham City


Swansea City vs Birmingham City Prediction: Swansea City line-up

After getting an impressive win away at QPR in midweek, Swansea City will be aiming to keep up their good start to the season when they face Birmingham City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Steve Cooper’s men have looked very good going forward, which is a testament to the style of football on display. While they are prone to conceding chances and goals in good numbers, scoring at the other end in abundance is what will take them close to promotion.

On Sunday, the Welsh side face a Birmingham team who have made a positive start to the season and lie eighth in the table. Thus, we can expect a closely-fought encounter at the Liberty.

Team News

Nathan Dyer has a hamstring injury that should keep him out of this weekend’s game. Aldo Kalulu missed the QPR game due to an injury, and is a doubt.

Predicted Swansea City XI

Formation – 4-2-3-1

Manager – Steve Cooper

Freddie Woodman (GK)

The new signing has done well even though his backline has been susceptible at times. He is the club’s number one now and would be in goal for the game on Sunday.

Connor Roberts (RB)

The energy of Roberts up and down the field is so important for Swansea in the wide areas. He should start against Birmingham on Sunday.

Mike van der Hoorn (CB)

He has been typically solid and commanding at the back so far apart from one or two twitchy moments. A certain starter at the Liberty this weekend.

Joe Rodon (CB)

Rodon was superb against QPR and did no harm to his chances of getting selected for the national team. If he is to cement that, then a good performance on Sunday is a must.

Jake Bidwell (LB)

The new signing has adjusted well to life at the club and is doing well at left-back as well. He should keep his place for the upcoming game.

Jay Fulton (CM)

Fulton continues to evolve as a player the more he plays. He is one of the key players in this Swansea team now and must start on Sunday.

Matt Grimes (CM)

The skipper was a little bit sloppy in possession against QPR. He needs to tighten up on that against a dangerous Birmingham side.

Andre Ayew (RW)

Ayew played well on Wednesday, which would tempt the manager to hand him another start on Sunday.

George Byers (CAM)

George Byers was quiet in the game against QPR and got subbed off at the hour mark. He needs to improve on that this weekend.

Bersant Celina (LW)

Celina was once again superb on Wednesday as he continues to terrorise defences in the Championship. Birmingham defenders would be wary of him on Sunday.

Borja Baston (ST)

The striker has done well since the start of the season. With McBurnie gone, Baston is scoring goals to lift the team to victories so far. He needs to build on that with every passing game.
