Same-again Swans take on Clarets

However, the Swans will still be without several first-team players as they look to bounce back from the 2-0 defeat to Norwich.
Striker Craig Beattie and midfielder Tom Butler are still around a week away from returning to contention with calf and thigh injuries respectively. Butler’s fellow midfielder Ferrie Bodde (knee), striker Gorka Pintado (shoulder) and defender Angel Rangel (thigh) are all long-term casualties.
Rodgers had been linked with a loan move for Arsenal’s Henri Lansbury to bolster his ranks, however, should the deal be completed, the midfielder would be unavailable for the clash against the Clarets as he has picked up a minor groin strain.
Swansea have started the season sluggishly, with just one win in the league from three games, however, they have scored seven goals in two outings at the Liberty Stadium this season.
A 3-0 victory over Barnet in the Carling Cup was followed by a 4-0 rout of Preston and Swansea will be looking to continue that form against Brian Laws’ men.
