Swansea boss Graham Potter is set to be handed a major injury boost with the return of Wilfried Bony this weekend for their game against Bolton Wanderers.
The Ivorian international has been out of action since February after rupturing a cruciate ligament against Leicester City, and has struggled on his recovery from the injury.
Bony will be keen to rediscover the form that made him such a success at Swansea in his first spell with the club, and he will look to find his scoring boots that have gone somewhat ‘missing’ in recent seasons.
But should Bony be reinstated to Graham Potter’s starting XI for this weekend’s game against Phil Parkinson’s Bolton side?
Not at all.
Graham Potter only really uses one up top and you have to start with Oli McBurnie who has been in great form this season.
As well as that, Bony is returning from an awful injury and needs to be eased back into the team. It could take several weeks before he is ready to start.
Not a chance.
Where does he fit into Graham Potter’s side?
Oli McBurnie is firing and it could hinder the morale in Swansea’s squad if Bony walks back in ahead of the Scot.
He should earn his chance like everyone else.
I don’t think it would be necessary, not from the start anyway.
Oli McBurnie is doing well leading the line and considering Wilfried Bony has just recovered from an injury, he would be better suited to coming off the bench.
With this being the last fixture before the international break, I can’t see it being worth the risk to start him this weekend.
Bony has been far from his best for a while now and interrupting McBurnie’s fine form would be a terrible mistake from Graham Potter.
If he proves he is still hungry for goals, then give him a shot.
