Jack Cork is also absent again with an ankle injury and a reshaped midfield is likely to see either club captain Leon Britton or Tom Carroll get the nod over Jay Fulton after last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Watford.

Relegation-threatened Swansea will make a late decision on top scorer Fernando Llorente, who has been troubled by ankle and leg injuries in recent weeks, with Jordan Ayew standing by.

Paul Clement's side are in desperate need of a victory as they battle relegation. The Swans are 18th in the table ahead of the weekend, four points clear of Middlesbrough below them and two behind Hull directly above.

Provisional squad: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Ki, Carroll, Fer, Sigurdsson, Llorente, Narsingh, Nordfeldt, Kingsley, Amat, Van der Hoorn, Britton, Fulton, Montero, Ayew, McBurnie, Borja, Roberts.
