Team News: Garry Monk makes five changes to Swansea City side

Swansea City boss Garry Monk makes five changes to his side for the FA Cup clash with Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

Swansea City boss Garry Monk has opted to leave new signing Kyle Naughton on the substitutes' bench for the FA Cup clash at Blackburn Rovers.

Naughton departed Tottenham Hotspur to move to the Liberty Stadium earlier this week but he has been left out of a side that includes five changes after the 5-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Angel Rangel, Jordi Amat and Kyle Bartley have all been included in the back four, while Jonjo Shelvey and Modou Barrow have also been handed a start further forward.

As for Blackburn, manager Gary Bowyer has opted to leave both Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede on the bench as they look to reach the last 16.

Gestede has been the subject of interest from Crystal Palace, but along with his strike partner, they are only replacements this afternoon as Bowyer decides to include Joshua King and Lee Williamson.

The quartet of Simon Eastwood, Adam Henley, Shane Duffy, Chris Taylor have also been drafted into the team.

Blackburn Rovers XI: Eastwood, Henley, Duffy, Kilgallon, Olsson, Taylor, Lowe, Williamson, Conway, Cairney, King
Subs: Steele, Hanley, Dunn, Brown, Rhodes, Marshall, Gestede

Swansea City XI: Fabianski, Rangel, Bartley, Amat, Tiendalli, Carroll, Shelvey, Dyer, Sigurdsson, Barrow, Gomis
