Besides loosing their main player on the attacking phase , Garry Monk believes that Gomis will fill up the empty place left behind from Wilfried Bony who chose to continue his career at Manchester.
Gary Monk admits that he wont be looking for any striker on the transfer market, but he’s looking forward and hoping that both Gomis and Nelson Oliveira will contribute for the team. The France International has started only 9 times for The Swans, finding the net 4 times since his arrival from Olympique Lyon last summer.
Swansea will face Chelsea without Jonjo Shelvey who is suspended and Ki Sung-yeung who is helping his national team at the Asian Cup. The only good news for Monk are that Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jefferson Montero are back from the injury and they’re ready to contribute for their team this Saturday.
Possible Line up for Swansea: Fabianski; Rangel, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor; Brittion, Carroll, Dyer, Sigurdsson, Routledge; Gomis
