It’s not been the easiest of campaigns for Swansea so far this season but the hosts will hope to gain some momentum by picking up a second win in the row against a Hull side who are keen to get back to winning ways.
Swansea are currently sitting in 11th place in the league but could move themselves back into the top half of the table with a win at The Liberty Stadium.
However, Michael Laudrup might need to do this without a legitimate striker as both Michu and Wilfired Bony are major doubts for the game after picking up injuries earlier in the week.
Alvaro Vazquez is also likely to miss the game thanks to a groin injury meaning that Laudrup may have to revert to the same formation that stunned Newcastle earlier in the week.
If this is the case, the team will need to control the game as much as possible in the middle of the park which shouldn’t be too difficult with The Swans leading the overall possession stats in the top flight with a total average figure of 59.6% in each game.
Although Hull suffered a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal in mid-week, the newly promoted side are still very much punching above their weight in 13th and could move up to 10th with a win in Wales.
The Tigers will receive a massive boost in their backline as Curtis Davies returns to the squad having missed the Arsenal defeat on Wednesday through a one-game suspension and will likely fill in at the expense of the deputizing James Chester.
Steve Bruce will also be given a couple more options in attack too as striker Matty Fryatt has also returned to the club after spending the last couple of months on loan to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.
Hull are certainly no strangers to facing Swansea having clashed with them in all four tiers of the English professional system over the past decade with The Tigers enjoying some of the recent successes having won three of their last four encounters against their Welsh opponents.
Both sides have come a long way in the last decade and Monday’s game will no doubt see both sides eager to push forward and show themselves as strong Premier League teams.
