Rangel Confirms Metatarsal Injury After Hull Defeat

Rangel Confirms Metatarsal Injury After Hull Defeat
Swansea City right back Angel Rangel has confirmed via twitter that he fractured his right metatarsal during Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Hull City.

The Spaniard started the game in place of the injured Kyle Naughton, but he was forced off the field after just 33 minutes.

With a lack of options, Paul Clement was forced to bring on fellow Spaniard Jordi Amat to play out of position at full back.

He struggled with the positioning in his new role, and we'll all be hoping that Kyle Naughton isn't out for too long. He should be back for Bournemouth.

Left back Martin Olsson also suffered an injury to his ankle later on in the game, but had to stay on as we'd used up all of our substitutions. He will be assessed on Monday, with Stephen Kingsley on standby to come in if need be.

Striker Fernando Llorente also went off just before half time due to injury, but it's hopeful that he'll recover from a dead-leg for the trip to Bournemouth on Saturday evening.

The Swans struggled with the injuries that piled up during the game, particularly when Llorente went off as we struggled for an outlet up top. Ayew couldn't hold the ball up as was usually not in a striker's positions, coming wide and dropping deep leaving nothing up top and through the centre.
