Brighton v Swansea

Match preview

Alfie Mawson, Swansea City

Brighton & Hove Albion are missing Steve Sidwell (back) and Jiri Skalak (ankle).

Alfie Mawson has made a quick recovery from a locked knee and is available for Swansea City but, while Leon Britton is back in training after an injection in his pelvis, the match has come too soon for him.

Renato Sanches (hamstring) is due back next month, while Angel Rangel (groin) remains sidelined and Wilfried Bony (ankle) and Leroy Fer (achilles) will miss the rest of the season.

Did you know?

Swansea City, who have drawn their last two away Premier League matches, haven’t drawn three consecutive away from home in the league since October 2009.

Brighton's Chris Hughton has lost only one of his seven previous meetings with Swansea City as a manager (W3 D3 L1), with each win coming with a different team (Newcastle, Norwich and Brighton).

Only four Englishmen have scored more Premier League goals this season than Glenn Murray (8): Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Jamie Vardy and Wayne Rooney.

Brighton's Jose Izquiredo has scored in his last two Premier League appearances and could become only the third Colombian to net in three consecutively, after Hamilton Ricard and Juan Pablo Angel.
