Stojanovic, Howson, Fry, Moukoudi, Coulson, McNair, Clayton, Wing, Tavernier, Gestede, Johnson
Swansea boss Steve Cooper will be able to welcome back Andre Ayew, Mike van der Hoorn and George Byers who were all injured before the lockdown.

Woodman, Naughton, van der Hoorn, Rodon, Bidwell, Fulton, Gallagher, Grimes, Kalulu, Brewster, Ayew
