Match preview

Paul Clement, Swansea

Swansea City midfielder Renato Sanches (thigh) is a major doubt and striker Wilfried Bony (hamstring) will be assessed.

Nathan Dyer is fit and in contention after eight months out with an Achilles problem.

Huddersfield Town are without Michael Hefele (Achilles), Kasey Palmer (hamstring) and Collin Quaner (calf).

Forward Steve Mounie (heel) is back in training but may not be rushed back. Danny Williams has recovered from a foot injury and will be involved.

Did you know?

This will be the first top-flight meeting between Swansea City and Huddersfield Town and the 92nd fixture in English league football to span the top four tiers.

Swansea have won only once in their last six Premier League matches against promoted sides, failing to score in four of those (W1 D1 L4).

The Swans have attempted the fewest shots (46), open-play shots (30) and shots on target (11) in the PL this season.

David De Gea (six) is the only goalkeeper to have kept more clean sheets this season than Huddersfield’s Jonas Lossl (four).

What the managers say 

Paul Clement: "Huddersfield play nice football, they are well coached and you have to say well done to them on the start they have made."
