Swansea City vs Manchester City - Naughton facing late fitness test

Swansea will check on defender Kyle Naughton (groin/hamstring) ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City.

Striker Oli McBurnie has resumed light training following illness but is unlikely to be rushed back if still not fully fit.

Defender Cameron Carter-Vickers should be available after suffering an unspecified knock in the midweek Championship defeat at West Brom.

Leroy Fer (hamstring) and Joe Rodon (foot) are expected back after the international break, while full-back Martin Olsson (Achilles) is a long-term absentee.

Defender John Stones will miss Manchester City’s FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday.

The England centre-back was an unused substitute against Schalke in midweek but is still troubled by a groin injury and is also likely to withdraw from international duty next week.

He joins captain Vincent Kompany, midfielder Fernandinho, left-back Benjamin Mendy, playmaker Kevin De Bruye and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo on the injury list.
