Swansea City vs Queens Park Rangers Team News

Swansea City

The hosts have a few injury concerns for this home game. Goalkeeper Steven Benda has played with the under-23 squad, so won't be able to feature for the main team just yet.

On-loan striker Jordan Morris had his ACL torn back in July and is ruled out for the rest of the season. Tivonge Rushesha also suffered an ACL injury and has been ruled out for the season.

In-form striker Andre Ayew became the latest casualty after he had to be taken off the pitch in the game against Wycombe with a hamstring issue.

Injured: Jordan Morris, Tivonge Rushesha, Andre Ayew

Suspended: None

Unavailable: Steven Benda

Queens Park Rangers

Tom Carroll has been ruled out since January on account of a knee injury. Charlie Owens has not played a game this season and is ruled out until the end of the month due to a knee injury.

Jordy De Wijs broke his nose earlier this week and was not a part of their game against Middlesbrough. However, he could feature in this game if he passes a late fitness test.

Goalkeeper Seny Dieng picked up a straight red card in their previous outing and is suspended for the game.

Injured: Tom Carroll, Charlie Owens

Doubtful: Jordy De Wijs

Suspended: Seny Dieng

Swansea City vs Queens Park Rangers Predicted XI

Swansea City Predicted XI (4-3-3): Freddie Woodman; Kyle Naughton, Ryan Bennett, Marc Guehi, Ryan Manning; Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes, Conor Hourihane; Korey Smith, Wayne Routledge, Jamal Lowe.

Swansea City vs Queens Park Rangers Prediction

The hosts recorded two wins after two consecutive losses in the league but dropped points in their previous outing against Wycombe.

Swansea have scored 52 goals so far while QPR have found the back of the net 50 times. So they are more or less matched in the attacking department. The hosts have conceded 33 goals compared to 50 by the visitors, so that might be the differentiating factor when these two sides meet on Tuesday.

Swansea City have enjoyed decent form at home this term, so we predict a win for them against an inconsistent QPR side.

Prediction: Swansea City 1-0 Queens Park Rangers
