Graham back in contention for Swansea

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has no fresh injury concerns ahead of his team’s Barclays Premier League trip to Chelsea.

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has no fresh injury concerns ahead of his team’s Barclays Premier League trip to Chelsea.

Striker Danny Graham is set to be available after missing the 3-0 win over West Brom with a back complaint, but may have to settle for a bench spot after Leroy Lita’s goalscoring exploits against the Baggies.

Left-back Neil Taylor has recovered from the blow to the head he suffered in a challenge with Peter Odemwingie but Rodgers remains short of centre-halves with Alan Tate (broken leg) and Steven Caulker (knee) injured, so captain Garry Monk and Ashley Williams will again pair up in defence.

Midfielder Kemy Agustien (hamstring) and striker Craig Beattie (ankle) are also sidelined.

Provisional squad: Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Dobbie, Routledge, Monk, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Moreira, Rangel, Allen, Tremmel, Gower, Richards, Lucas.
