Midfield worries for Swansea

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has concerns about the fitness of several players ahead of the trip to Newcastle.

Midfielder Ki Sung-yueng misses out with a hamstring problem, while his preferred replacement Kemy Agustien is struggling with a toe injury.

Leon Britton also has a knock while winger Pablo Hernandez is nursing an ankle injury, although defender Chico Flores is set to return from a dead leg.

Should Agustien be unavailable, Laudrup may opt to move top scorer Michu back into midfield and hand Danny Graham or Itay Shechter a start up front.

Provisional squad: Flores, Tate, Williams, Britton, Michu, Graham, Hernandez, Dyer, Cornell, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Rangel, Tremmel, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Davies.
