Michel Vorm injury blow for Swansea

Swans star hurt in Manchester City loss; Stoke's Marc Wilson breaks leg

Swansea City keeper Michel Vorm could be back in time for the Christmas period

The 29-year-old was stretchered off on 60 minutes after injuring himself as he tried to save Carlos Tevez's winning strike and is likely to be out until the Christmas period.

"It's a big blow for us because Michel is a very good goalkeeper who has been playing well," said Swans boss Michael Laudrup.

Meanwhile, Stoke City star Marc Wilson will be sidelined for several weeks after suffering a broken leg during Saturday's draw with Sunderland.
