Swansea City optimistic over injury victims Leon Britton and Luke Moore ahead of Arsenal clash
SWANSEA City have fingers crossed that Leon Britton will be fit to return when they face Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium this Saturday.
And boss Michael Laudrup expects to have Luke Moore available even though the in-form striker picked up an injury at West Bromwich Albion last weekend.
Britton missed the Hawthorns defeat with a hip injury and, although he did not train at the start of this week, Swansea are hopeful that he will be available for the Guners clash.
Moore, meantime, has returned to training after asking to be substituted at West Brom after scoring for the second time in two games because of a calf problem.
Swansea are again likely to be without Chico Flores this weekend, with the Spanish centre-back eyeing the Tottenham game which follows the international break for a probable return after more than a month out with ankle ligament damage.
And Kemy Agustien is also likely to miss out even though he is making good progress after injuring a thigh problem.
Long-term absentee Neil Taylor is another player who is building towards a return to action.
