Michael Laudrup’s side have however impressed in patches in their opening round of fixtures as well in Europe, securing their place in the Europa League group stages with wins over Malmo and Petrolui Ploiesti.
The Swans will be hoping they avoid another European hangover after their 1-0 loss at White Hart Lane, a result made all the most disappointing by the fact that Spurs travelled back from Georgia after their Europa League qualifying game.
Laudruo will include Jonjo Shelvey, Ashley Williams and Wilfried Bony in his starting line-up after the trio were left out of the squad that travelled to Romania for the game with Petrolul Ploiesti.
The trio were left behind to be treated for minor knocks but are expected to be fit for Sun-day’s clash however Nathan Dyer (hamstring) and Neil Taylor (thigh) will play no part in Sunday’s match, with both players out for at least another two weeks.
West Brom meanwhile welcomes back Nicholas Anelka to the squad after he missed the last two games on compassionate grounds.
The former Chelsea striker was reportedly ready to turn his back on the game following the death of close friend and former representative but following talks with manager Steve Clarke is set to continue.
After a goal-less opening to the beginning of the Premier League Clarke will be delighted to have persuaded the veteran striker to continue especially as fellow summer signing Matej Vydra is out of Sunday’s clash with a hamstring injury.
Also out are long term absentee’s Ben Foster and Zoltan Gera with ankle and knee injury respectively while Steven Reid and George Thorne are also expected to miss out.
Billy Jones and Claudio Jacob will both be in the squad after playing in the midweek win over Newport, a match that saw 20 year old Saido Berahino score a hat-trick.
The Burundi born striker could have forced his way onto the bench after a stunning debut that culminated in a first half treble.
Scott Sinclair, another debutant in the Capital One clash with the league two side, is likely to make his first Premier League start for his new side against the club he left 12 months ago for Manchester City.
The match kicks off at 13:30 GMT
