Jonathan de Guzman will miss Swansea's Barclays Premier League opener against Manchester United on Saturday due to concussion.

The Dutch midfielder was hurt in a training ground collision with Dirk Kuyt while on international duty and could also miss the first leg of the Europa League play-off against Petrolul Ploiesti.

Pablo Hernandez and Jonjo Shelvey are available again after their respective groin injury and illness, while Wilfried Bony is set to feature despite only arriving back from Ivory Coast's friendly against Mexico in New Jersey late last night.

David Moyes must decide whether to include Wayne Rooney in the squad for his first Premier League game as Manchester United manager.

Rooney completed 65 minutes of his first game of the summer when England defeated Scotland on Wednesday and is expected to be on the bench at the Liberty Stadium.

Rafael and Javier Hernandez (both hamstring) and wing duo Nani and Ashley Young are all expected to be sidelined, so Wilfried Zaha stands by for his first top slight start, although Michael Carrick should recover from the eye infection which kept him out of England's friendly.


Swansea (from): Vorm, Amat, Taylor, Flores, Williams, Britton, Shelvey, Michu, Bony, Hernandez, Dyer, Lamah, Routledge, Monk, Rangel, Ki, Canas, Pozuelo, Richards, Tremmel, Davies, Donnelly.

Manchester United (from): De Gea, Lindegaard, Smalling, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Buttner, Fabio, Zaha, Valencia, Carrick, Cleverley, Anderson, Giggs, Lingard, Januzaj, Welbeck, Rooney, Van Persie.
