Sheffield Wednesday vs Swansea match preview

A revitalised Swansea side travel to Hillsborough on Saturday for the FA Cup 5th round.

The Swans nicked Wednesday’s manager, Carlos Carvalhal back in late December and it has turned out to be debatably, the best appointment of the season.

Carvalhal left Wednesday by mutual consent four days before becoming the Swansea manager and it will be interesting to see what kind of reception the Portuguese manager receives.

Since arriving in Wales, Carvalhal has had a phenomenal record. Swansea have lost just once since Carvalhal took charge at The Liberty Stadium.

In the previous round of the competition, Swansea fielded a second string side against League 2 Notts County and were held to a 1-1 draw. The Swans went all out in the replay and demolished County by 8 goals to 1.

Wednesday qualified for the 5th round after beating Reading 3-1.

Swansea team news vs Sheffield Wednesday

It will be interesting to see what kind of team Carvalhal will field against Wednesday. Despite their brilliant recent form which has seen them beat Liverpool and Arsenal, Swansea are not safe from relegation yet and Premier League survival is surely a priority.

However, Swansea can’t make the same mistake as they did against Notts County and therefore we expect a mixture of first team regulars and reserves to play on Saturday.

Tammy Abraham netted twice in the 8-1 win against Notts County but has only scored 7 goals in all competitions this season whilst he is on loan at the club from Chelsea.

Nonetheless, Abraham is likely to start up front on Saturday with Nathan Dyer playing as a centre forward directly behind him.

Angel Rangel and Renato Sanches are both ruled out through injury.

Unpredictable Sheffield Wednesday

Wednesday have played 10 matches so far in 2018 winning 3, losing 2 and drawing 5.

Wednesday have already picked up 2 red cards so far this year and can be a rather amusing side to watch.

They did win their last match, on Tuesday, against Derby with Lucas João scoring a brace.

Wednesday are 15th in the Championship and are well equipped to avoid the drop meaning they can take the FA Cup seriously.

A win against Swansea would take them to the quarter finals of the competition, a stage they haven’t reached since 1987.

It has been 54 years since Swansea last reached the quarter finals of the competition and a place in history is at stake.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Swansea prediction

As mentioned, Swansea’s brilliant league form has not yet secured them Premier League safety and The Swans may be forced to rest some players ahead of their match against Brighton next week.

For that reason, we think that this match will end in a draw and Swansea will have to settle for a replay at the Liberty Stadium.
