McBurnie starts: The Swansea XI we expect Potter to play v Sheff Utd tomorrow



It has been a bit of a strange season for Swansea City in the Championship so far following their relegation from the Premier League. 

But Graham Potter has largely done a good job with the limited funds he has had available, bringing back the slick passing style the Swans have been synonymous with for a long time.

Even with their form proving to be slightly erratic in the first half of the season, they still remain in with a shot of making the play-offs.

With 27 matches played, Potter has his side sat in 13th place and just six points behind Derby County who currently occupy the final spot in the top-six.

This Saturday sees them welcome second-placed Sheffield United in a reverse of the opening match of the season.

But how will Potter set-up his troops with a couple of injury absentees returning to fitness?

Here is what we expect…

It will be more of the same at the back for the Swans with the reliable quartet of Kyle Naughton, Mike Van der Hoorn, Joe Rodon and Connor Roberts proving to be very solid this season.

Fer and Grimes will continue to improve what looks like a very promising partnership in holding midfield whilst Daniel James is likely to return to the left-wing in place of Wayne Routledge to give the Blades defence a bit more to think about.

Bersaint Celina and Nathan Dyer will play alongside the highly-rated Welshman but the biggest boost of all comes in attack where ten-goal striker Oli McBurnie is likely to return after missing the draw with Preston through illness.
