McKay and Asoro on the wings – Strongest 4-3-3 Swansea City XI to face Birmingham City

Predicted Swansea City line-up to face Birmingham City in the Championship

After claiming the scalps of Preston last week, Swansea City will be going into the game against Birmingham City in full confidence. Graham Potter’s men have looked impressive in the opening stages of the Championship as they aim to make a swift return to the Premier League next season.

Team News

There are no new injuries for the manager to worry about, with just Wilfried Bony and Declan John out on the sidelines. Graham Potter will be aiming to deploy a similar line-up from last week given the cohesion of the squad.

Here we take a look at the possible line-up that Graham Potter could field as Swansea travel to the St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium-

Probable Swansea City XI

Manager: Graham Potter

Formation: 4-3-3

Erwin Mulder (GK)

Mulder came on as a substitute in the previous game as Nordfeldt succumbed to an injury. The 29-year-old Dutchman went on to keep a clean sheet and should start this weekend.

Connor Roberts (RB)

The Welsh youngster has looked settled and steady playing on the right-hand side of the defence. He is defensively diligent and exciting going forward.

Van Der Hoorn (CB)

Fernandez has virtually passed on the baton to Van Der Hoorn and its up to him to lead Swansea City from the back. The Dutch international will now be the leader at the back.

Mike van der Hoorn

Joe Rodon (CB)

The 20-year-old did well in the last game against Preston and should be handed another start against Birmingham City this weekend.

Martin Olsson (LB)

The Swede has been one of their most consistent defenders over the last two seasons. He should start at left-back.

Jay Fulton (RCM)

Fulton opened his account for the season, nodding in the winner against Preston. He will be aiming for a repeat performance this time out as well.

Bersant Celina (CM)

Playing in the middle of the park, the youngster has looked calm and composed over the last few games. His distribution in the middle of the park has been vital for the Swans.

Tom Carroll (LCM)

Carroll’s supply in the final third has been crucial for Swansea going forward. He is very much capable of opening up the opposition.

Tom Carrol

Joel Asoro (RW)

The youngster picked up his first assist of the season in the previous game against Preston. He has proven to be a massive threat for the opposition with his direct runs on the ball. Asoro should be deployed in the same role once again.

Oliver McBurnie (ST)

The Scottish forward has looked venomous going forward for the Swans. He picked up a goal in the first game of the season and will be aiming to add to his tally once again.
