Exciting winger to start: Predicted West Ham line-up to play Swansea

Here is how we predict Swansea City and West Ham United will line up this weekend:

To be played on Sunday 20th December 2015 at 16:00. Venue: Liberty Stadium, Swansea

Odds: Swansea 11/10, Draw 12/5, West Ham 13/5

Swansea City welcome West Ham United to the Liberty Stadium on Sunday with both sides seeking a victory for very different reasons.

The Hammers are currently eighth in the Premier League table but they are just two points behind fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with plenty of football still to be played.

As for Swansea, they are without a manager and find themselves outside the bottom three only on goal-difference following Garry Monk’s departure earlier this month.

West Ham have drawn their last two matches 0-0 and manager Slaven Bilic will be desperate to see his side find the back of the net after a string of injuries to key attacking players.

Swansea are just desperate for every point that comes their way and caretaker manager Alan Curtis is tasked with guiding the Welsh side to a point or three for the second successive weekend.

In early team news, Swansea are without the injured Franck Tabanou while Jonjo Shelvey and Eder are rated at 75 per cent to be fit for this encounter.

West Ham are without a number of first-team stars including Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini, Diafra Sakho, Victor Moses and Winston Reid.
