The Liberty Stadium hosts a crunch game at the wrong end of the table this weekend, and both sides have injuries to contend with.

It remains far too early in the season to be talking about 'six-pointers' or 'must win games', but Saturday's clash between Swansea City and Crystal Palace at the Liberty Stadium is a crucial one for both sides.

The hosts are rock bottom of the Premier League and without a win since the opening day of the season. Replacing Francesco Guidolin with American coach Bob Bradley has not yet had the desired effect, with the Swans now five points adrift of safety.

They were moments away from ending their long run without three points at Goodison Park last weekend, but a late Seamus Coleman equaliser denied Bradley's side and Sunderland's win ensured Swansea have had to spend this week propping up the division.

The visitors have had a varied season so far. A winless August was followed by three successive wins in September, but the Eagles travel to South Wales having lost their last five league matches.

It is a dismal run that has piled the pressure on Alan Pardew. The Palace boss reacted to a disappointing end to last season by spending big in the summer, a strategy that is so far yet to see results improve.

Both sides have their injury issues ahead of Saturday afternoon's match, though Palace have more to contend with than Swansea on that front.

The Swans only absentee is midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung, who has broken his toe. Jefferson Montero and Leon Britton have recovered from their respective knocks and will be in contention for a place in Bradley's starting XI.

Palace will again have to cope without their first choice goalkeeper, with Steve Mandanda set for a further few weeks on the sidelines.

Papa Souare, Loic Remy and Jonathan Benteke are all long-term absentees, while Yohan Cabaye is one booking away from a one-match suspension.
