Swansea City vs Southampton Team News:
Swansea City will be able to profit from having a fresh squad after almost a month without a match; yet, there may be a lack of sharpness after such a long period off the field. Michael Obafemi might find himself in the starting lineup against his previous club on Saturday, but Piroe will be aiming to keep his position in the starting lineup as well, particularly after scoring in their most recent match against them.
In addition, Chelsea loanee Armando Broja will be seeking to continue his good season in the FA Cup, which might present a chance for veteran goalkeeper Willy Caballero to make his competitive debut. Even though Alex McCarthy is still out with a thigh injury, the Saints might be ready to welcome Jack Stephens back after his struggle with COVID-19.
Swansea City vs Southampton Probable Playing XI:
Swansea City possible starting lineup:
Hamer; Ryan Bennett, Downes, Cabango; Laird, Matt Grimes, Korey Smith, Manning; Ntcham, Paterson; Piroe
Southampton possible starting lineup:
Caballero; Kyle Walker-Peters, Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Perraud; Armstrong, Diallo, James Ward-Prowse; Armando Broja, Shane Long
Swansea City vs Southampton Betting Predictions:
Match Betting: Swansea City win (4.50)
Southampton win (1.72)
The One-Liner Explainer:
Both sides will be hoping that this FA Cup tie will serve as the trigger that allows them to get their respective seasons back on track, which will put additional pressure on this game. Despite this, Southampton does possess an additional quality that should be sufficient to carry them past this game and into the fourth round of the competition.
