ONE TO WATCH: Jordan Ayew
In a challenging season for the Swans, the Ghana international has been a shining light. The 26-year-old – who is the younger brother of fellow Swansea forward Andre – provides Carlos Carvahal’s men with directness, dribbling ability and a goalscoring threat. He’s the club’s top scorer this season with 10 goals in all competitions (six in the Premier League) and Swansea are yet to lose a game in which he has found the back of the net. Keeping him quiet could hold the key to the Blues leaving the Liberty Stadium with maximum points.
