Shelvey Set For Spell On Sidelines

Shelvey Set For Spell On Sidelines
Jonjo Shelvey picked up a hamstring injury during Sunday's defeat against Spurs as Swansea's injury troubles just keep getting worse.

Michael Laudrup has been forced to put defender Jordi Amat into midfield after losing the likes of Nathan Dyer, Jonathan de Guzman, Michu, Pablo Hernandez and Jose Canas all to injury.

Swansea's squad is getting severely low in numbers and are struggling for results in the league, having not won in the last 8.

The likes of de Guzman, Dyer, Hernandez and Vorm could all return over the next week or so, but they can't all be expected to instantly return and make a significant impact after recent injuries and lack of training.

Shelvey will be a big loss for the Swans as they're lacking attacking players in midfield - or midfielders full stop. The England under-21 international could be out for two weeks or more.

Laudrup will be hoping that one or two can return to action for the next League game - a must win home game against fellow strugglers Fulham.
