Michael Laudrup: Swansea boss concerned over injured strikers

Laudrup's side must play three matches in seven days, beginning with the visit of Hull City in Monday Night Football.

They then travel to Switzerland to face St Gallen in a crucial Europa League tie on Thursday before returning to Premier League action away to Norwich on Sunday 15 December.

Alvaro Vazquez was forced off in their 3-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday night to join his Spanish compatriot Michu (ankle) and record signing Wilfried Bony (hamstring) on the sidelines.

All three will be monitored and assessed over the course of the week but Laudrup is keen to give them time to recover.

"Michu has trained on his own, but on Sunday it will be five weeks since he was injured in the Cardiff game," he said.

"Let's say he could be back for Monday but he will definitely not be match fit, so we have to bring him back in carefully.

"He knows he will not be able to play 90 minutes on Monday, Thursday and Sunday.

"It is the same with Bony, the injury is not too bad but it is too soon to say if they will be back for Monday."

Watch Swansea take on Hull in the Premier League in Monday Night Football. Coverage starts on Sky Sports 1 HD at 7pm.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
