Swansea set to field debutants against Burnley

New signings Andre Ayew and Andy King are in line to make their Swansea debuts at home to Burnley.

Striker Ayew has recovered from a hamstring injury after returning to Swansea from West Ham, while loan midfielder King was unable to play against parent club Leicester last weekend.

Renato Sanches (hamstring) remains out, and Angel Rangel (groin) is the latest Swansea player to need surgery after Leroy Fer (Achilles) and Wilfried Bony (knee) suffered season-ending injuries.

Burnley have Stephen Ward back fit but will be without Phil Bardsley for the trip.

Bardsley was forced off at half-time of last weekend’s draw with Manchester City because of a hamstring problem so Matthew Lowton will make his first start following injury at right-back. Ward (knee) is likely to have to settle for a place on the bench as Charlie Taylor keeps his place at left-back.

James Tarkowski (groin), Tom Heaton (shoulder), Robbie Brady, Steven Defour, Dean Marney, Chris Wood and Jon Walters (all knee) all remain sidelined.
