Here at the Transfer Tavern we were impressed by Swansea City’s 3-2 victory over Liverpool last time out in the Premier League.
Paul Clement has made a brilliant impact on arrival at the club and two of his new signings Martin Olsson and Tom Carroll made an instant impact last time out.
The Swans are in serious trouble of relegation, though, and a run of form from their victory over Liverpool is really needed if they are to have any hopes of survival.
Their opponents this weekend – Southampton – found themselves battered 5-0 by Arsenal in the FA Cup last Saturday whereas the Swans had no fixture so mentally they should be stronger going into the game.
And although the Saints made a number of changes to their side in the Cup it could have a knock on effect to their entire team.
With that in mind, then, if Clement picks this Swansea City XI, they will demolish Southampton..
