Swansea City and West Ham United come face to face at the Liberty Stadium this Saturday following their respective victories in the opening weekend.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup will take his first home game in charge of the Swans when they welcome West Ham United to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The Welsh outfit stunned Queens Park Rangers with a 5-0 rout at Loftus Road on the opening day of the new Premier League season, while new boys West Ham snatched a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at the weekend.

Laudrup is expected to start the same team that secured three points last Saturday, with new signing Michu likely to lead the line alongside Danny Graham following his impressive debut.

Meanwhile, Sam Allardyce is expected to keep new goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen in the starting lineup along with Ricardo Vaz Te and Carlton Cole up front. Jack Collison is expected to face a fitness test ahead of the clash after missing out last weekend.

Swansea City: Vorm; Rangel, Williams, Chico, Taylor; Britton, De Guzman, Dyer, Routledge; Michu, Graham

West Ham United: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Collins, Reid, McCartney, Diame, Noble, Nolan, Vaz Te, Taylor, Cole

Sports Mole says: 2-1
