Predicted Swansea City line-up to face Preston North End in the Championship
Swansea City will be aiming for back to back victories after claiming the scalps of Sheffield United last weekend. The Swans nicked it in the final five minutes, with former Liverpool midfielder Yan Dhanda scoring moments after stepping onto the field as a substitute.
Graham Potter will be going into the game hoping for a win against Preston this weekend. Preston beat QPR 1-0 last weekend and are level with Swansea City on 3 points. A win this weekend would see the Swans pull off the perfect start to their Championship run.
Probable Swansea City XI
Manager: Graham Potter
Kristoffer Nordfeldt (GK)
With Fabianski now at West Ham United, Nordfeldt has been given the role between the sticks. This is the goalkeeper’s chance to impress his manager and nail down his spot.
Martin Olsson (LB)
The 30-year-old was impressive for the Swans in the last outing, putting an excellent shift in the defence.
Joe Rodon (CB)
Rodon should start alongside Van der Hoorn. A good opportunity for the youngster to shine.
Van der Hoorn (CB)
The Dutch centre-back should once again be partnered alongside Fernandez, with the pair showing cohesion and understanding in their game.
Connor Roberts (RB)
The young defender showed plenty of attacking threat in the previous game and should be given the nod this time as well.
Tom Carroll (CM)
Carroll brings a sense of stability and fluidity in the middle of the park. His creative presence is crucial to the Swans going forward.
Bersant Celina (CM)
Another talented young midfielder who has hit the ground running in the Championship this season. Should start.
Yan Dhanda (CAM)
The former Liverpool midfielder scored within moments of his arrival, sending the Swansea fans into raptures. He should be given a start this weekend.
Jefferson Montero (LW)
Montero looked energetic and lively after coming on in the second half. He was a major threat down the left flank with his constant running and dribbling on the ball.
Joel Asoro (RW)
The 19-year-old Swedish attacker has shown immense potential and maturity in his game. He has all the qualities to flourish in this Swansea side.

Oliver McBurnie (ST)
The Scottish striker opened the scoring for the Swans this season and was their focal point going forward. He should be key to their chances of scoring in this game as well.
