Swansea City are expected to have winger Modou Barrow and striker Fernando Llorente fit for Saturday’s home game against Watford.

Barrow, who picked up our Man of the Match vote by some margin against Arsenal last Saturday, was forced off with around 8 minutes left to play and there were doubts if he’d be fit for this weekend’s crucial game against the Hornets.

Fortunately reports suggest that there was no significant damage and he should be fine, while striker Fernando Llorente is expected to be fit after missing the last two games with rib and knee problems.

With Llorente out at Arsenal, and Borja struggling for fitness, Bradley had to adopt Sigurdsson as a false nine in his first game, but he should be boosted this weekend with the availability of Barrow, and both strikers.

But will Montero be available? There’s been no news yet, but he was another player missing from the bench last weekend. Routledge offered no attacking threat on the left flank at Arsenal, unlike Barrow on the right, and the Swans desperately need to find some attacking balance.
