Swansea host Middlesbrough in a real six-pointer at the bottom end of the Premier League.

Boro won the corresponding fixture 3-0 in December but much has changed since then with two new bosses now in the dugout.

Paul Clement has the Swans in better form, despite a recent slump, while Steve Agnew replaced Aitor Karanka prior to the international break and appeared to have Boro showing signs of life again against Manchester United after a dismal run.

They meet today both in desperate for all three points in the battle to avoid the drop.


Swansea: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Fer, Cork, Carroll, Narsingh, Ayew, Sigurdsson. Subs: Ki, van der Hoorn, Borja Baston, Nordfeldt, Montero, Kingsley, McBurnie.

Middlesbrough: Valdes, Barragan, Bernardo, Gibson, Da Silva, de Roon, Clayton, Traore, Downing, Ramirez, Negredo. Subs: Ayala, Leadbitter, Guzan, Stuani, Guedioura, Gestede, Forshaw.

Referee: Robert Madley (West Yorkshire)
