Two clubs headed in opposite directions clash at the Liberty Stadium at 11:30am ET live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

Tony Pulis has miraculously pulled Crystal Palace not just out of the Premier League’s basement but has them two wins in their last four to earn the Eagles vital points.

There are no health issues for Pulis’s men.  Jerome Thomas and Glenn Murray were the only two that had any issues during the week, and both are well enough to see the bench.

Meanwhile, Swansea have three losses in their last four matches and Garry Monk has work to do to make sure the Swans don’t see themselves sucked into the relegation battle.

In addition, the home side was frustrated by Napoli in the Europa League midweek, and that will only compound their misery ahead of this match.

Monk’s injury list is much larger than his opponent’s, as Jonjo Shelvey misses out with a hamstring injury that also kept him off the Napoli trip, while Michu is still not ready to return from his long-term ankle issue.

The good news for the home side is that the trio of Leon Britton, Ben Davies, and Nathan Dyer are all healthy and in the starting lineup.

LINEUPS:

Swansea City – Vorm; Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies; Britton, de Guzman, Dyer, Hernandez, Routledge; Bony.
Bench – Tremmel, Amat, Taylor, Canas, Emnes, Vazquez, Lita.

Crystal Palace - Speroni; Ward, Dann, Delaney, Parr; Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Ledley, Bolasie, Ince, Chamakh.
Bench – Hennessey, Gabbidon, Bannan, Thomas, Gayle, Jerome, Murray.
