Swansea City take on Aston Villa in the Barclays Premier League this afternoon.

A win would give them back-to-back league victories for the first time in 58 games, something they last achieved in late 2012.

Spanish striker Michu will be absent from the squad with an ankle injury.

The Swans are currently six points above the relegation zone after beating Newcastle away last weekend.

Kick off is at 3pm at Swansea's Liberty Stadium.

Newcastle 1-2 Swansea (FT)

Two goals from Wilfried Bony sealed the win for Swansea against Newcastle at St James Park. Final score - Newcastle 1-2 Swansea (FT).


Wilfried Bony scores his 22nd goal of the season to hand #Swans all three points at @nufc. Great scenes.

The club confirmed earlier this week that an incident took place as the squad prepared for Sunday's premier League meeting with Chelsea. Monk says it's all been blown out of proportion and that he suspects the news was leaked by someone outside of the club.
