Burnley v Swansea preview

Matt Taylor is closing in on a return after making a slow recovery from Achilles surgery but is not yet ready for the matchday squad.

Dean Marney and Kevin Long will both be out until next season after suffering cruciate ligament damage.

Swansea manager Garry Monk also has no new injury concerns for the trip to Burnley.

Monk’s biggest dilemma is whether to revert back to his favoured 4-3-3 formation after switching to a midfield diamond for last week’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium.

If Monk decides to do that then Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero could be recalled, with Nathan Dyer, who was omitted from the 18-man match-day squad against United, returning to the bench.
