The Swans head for Fulham later on the back of two contrasting drawn games - a very creditable point against Manchester United followed by a goalless stalemate at Reading, a match they were disappointed not to win.
On paper they might be many people's favourites to beat the Cottagers, who have been consistently inconsistent this season.
But Michael Laudrup's men must cope without the injured Michu, and losing a top scorer who's already managed 13 Premier League goals this season could cause problems. In the circumstances, a third draw in succession would seem a decent result.
