Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers says he should have an almost fully fit side again after the international break.

Apart from long-term absentee Ferrie Bodde, the Swans manager is expected to have Stephen Dobbie, Steven Caulker and Kemy Agustien all fit again for the home game against Premiership title holders Manchester United on 19th November.

The three players will miss this Saturday’s trip to Liverpool but they’re expected to return and give Rodgers a big boost for when they host Fergie’s side in just over 2 weeks.

‘I think by the time the international break is over, we should have nearly everyone back fit again,’

‘Steven Caulker, Stephen Dobbie and Kemy Agustien are not quite ready yet and won’t play against Liverpool.

‘But they should be with us by the time we play Manchester United.’


Caulker and Agustien in particular were key members of the side before they suffered injuries. Caulker proved to be an excellent defensive signing, as he soon formed a solid partnership with Ashley Williams. Kemy Agustien meanwhile has shown a big improvement after a quiet opening season last year at Swansea City. The central midfielder has given us a much needed physical edge to our game, something the likes of Mark Gower and Wayne Routledge struggle to offer.
