Hull City vs. Swansea City: Premier League – Match Preview

Two of the sides in the relegation mix go head to head on Saturday as a resurgent Swansea City side travel to face Hull City.

Hull City were beaten 3-1 away at the champions Leicester City last weekend, despite taking the lead through Sam Clucas.

Leicester responded well and goals from Christian Fuchs and Riyad Mahrez turned the game on it’s head, before a Tom Huddlestone own goal late on.

Swansea City have improved dramatically under new manager Paul Clement and they recorded a huge win last time out.

Trailing 2-1 late on, goals from Martin Olsson and Fernando Llorente saw them beat Burnley to push further clear of the drop.

Team news
Hull City’s lengthy injury list shows no sign of easing, with Marco Silva without nine first team members.

They are likely to name the same XI that lost at Leicester, although Abel Hernandez could return to the starting XI.

Angel Rangel looks set to come in at right-back with Kyle Naughton a big doubt.

Luciando Narsingh should keep his place on the wing, with Swansea naming a similar XI once again.

Expected starting XI’s
Hull City (4-3-3): Jakupovic; Elmohamady, Ranocchia, Maguire, Robertson; N’Diaye, Huddlestone, Clucas; Markovic, Niasse, Grosicki
Swansea City (4-3-3): Fabianski; Rangel, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson; Fer, Cork, Carroll; Narsingh, Llorente, Sigurdsson
