14:55
And finally the odds for this match. Swansea can be backed at 8/11 while an away win can be had at 18/5. A draw is 12/5. Given both these sides recent form and history against one another, the result is anybody's guess.
14:50
STATS: There have been 22 goals in the five previous Premier League matches between these two sides. Swansea's top scorer Wilfried Bony has eight goals in his thirteen appearances at home this season. Robert Snodgrass has scored and assisted goals in both league games against Swansea last season.
14:45
STATS: Michu has scored three goals in three games against Norwich but has never been on the winning side. Norwich have won three and drawn two of the five previous Premier League meetings between the sides. They have however lost their last five away games in a row despite Snodgrass scoring four in his last seven games for the Canaries.
14:40
Chris Hughton is looking for a lift away from home from his players: "(Norwich's home form) is one we have to address. You look at the better days on the road and Stoke and West Brom are the levels we need to get closer to. We need to start doing ourselves a favour to relieve some of that pressure on the home games."
14:35
Garry Monk isn't letting Swansea's poor record against Norwich get him down: "We've never beaten them. For various reasons they have been the better team on the day. We need to make sure that we are the better team this time and bring the run to an end. I am not going to sit there and wait, we have to be aggressive."
14:30
AWAY NEWS: One change for Chris Hughton also as Joseph Yobo pulled out of training on Friday with a calf problem. It means Ryan Bennett comes in at centre-back alongside Sebastian Bassong in the only change from the side that beat Sunderland 2-0 at home last week. This game comes just too soon for cente back Michael Turner who still isn't fit afer his hamstring injury picked up on New Year's Day.
14:25
HOME NEWS: Just the one change for Garry Monk from the team that went to the Emirates and took home a point. Ben Davies returns to the line-up up at left-back while Neil Taylor drops to the bench. Michu starts again following a decent 75 minutes midweek after his long-term ankle injury.
14:20
TEAMS: Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies, Britton, Shelvey, de Guzman, Michu, Rouledge, Bony.
