LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has made seven adjustments from the side that was hammered by Liverpool a week ago for today’s English League Cup Final clash with Bradford at Wembley Stadium.
However, the Dane has decided to go strong again with leading striker Michu returning to lead the attacking front line.
Pablo Hernandez, Jonathan de Guzman and Leon Britton also start, with Gerhard Tremmel, as it’s been all season, starting ahead of Michel Vorm in the Cup.
Bradford maybe a League Two side, but they have knocked out some big sides, including Arsenal and Aston Villa, leading up to the final.
Manager Phil Parkinson has recalled centre-backs Carl McHugh and Rory McArdle for Bradford, with Curtis Good starting at left back.
Elsewhere, James Hanson, Nathan Doyle and Nahki Wells are all named in the side, while Garry Thompson have moved out to start on the right flank.
Swansea City: Tremmel, Rangel, Ki, Williams, Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Routledge, Hernandez, Dyer, Michu.
Subs: Vorm, Lamah, Monk, Shechter, Moore, Tiendalli, Agustien.
Bradford: Duke, Darby, McArdle, McHugh, Good, Thompson, Doyle, Jones, Atkinson, Hanson, Wells.
Subs: McLaughlin, Ravenhill, Davies, Reid, Connell, Hines, Turgott.
