Cardiff City host Swansea City in the Premier League on Sunday in the Welsh derby.

The first Welsh derby of the Premier League season takes place on Sunday as Cardiff City host Swansea City at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff have won just once in four home games so far, but that would quickly be forgotten with a win over their bitter rivals.

Swansea have just won win in their last four in the league, which includes two defeats, but have won two from four away from the Liberty Stadium.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Malky Mackay who could name the same XI, while Michael Laudrup could recall Wilfried Bony up front in place of Alvaro Vazquez.
