The 32-year-old Spaniard suffered the injury during the Swans' opening day defeat at Hull and now faces up to three months out.

Pintado's fellow striker Craig Beattie (calf) is also on the sidelines alongside midfielders Ferrie Bodde (knee) and Tom Butler (thigh).

Winger Nathan Dyer could return from a leg injury to bolster boss Brendan Rodgers' attacking options, but the squad will travel to Carrow Road with Stephen Dobbie and Shefki Kuqi as the only fully fit strikers.

Thankfully for Rodgers, goals would not appear to be a problem after the Swans romped to a 4-0 victory over Preston last weekend.
