Swansea v West Brom preview

Striker Michu could make his comeback from a three-month ankle injury lay-off in Swansea's game against West Brom on Saturday.

Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and defender Kyle Bartley (both hamstring) are out but goalkeeper Michel Vorm has been cleared to play after overcoming illness.

The Swans will test midfielder Pablo Hernandez (hamstring) on Friday.

West Brom will be without several players due to injuries.

Steven Reid (knee), Claudio Yacob (hamstring) and captain Chris Brunt (knee) will all be absent after coming off in last weekend's 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United, with the latter subsequently being ruled out of action for five to six weeks having sustained medial ligament damage.

Diego Lugano was already sidelined with a similar problem - he faces three to four weeks out - and Billy Jones (hamstring) is not yet ready to return.

Striker Nicolas Anelka will begin his five-match suspension after both he and the Football Association declined to appeal against the sanction imposed over his 'quenelle' goal celebration against West Ham.
