Swansea City could pick up some ground in the EFL Championship promotion race this week, but will face a tough test at home on Wednesday.
The Swans host fourth-place Brentford with Seattle Sounders loanee Jordan Morris an option to make his club debut. Morris arrived on loan last week from the MLS club and will now look to play a vital role for Swansea in its push for promotion back to the Premier League. The U.S. Men’s National Team star has yet to taste life in Europe competitively, but could be just what Steve Cooper’s side needs to hang on to that final automatic promotion spot.
Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea will look to pick up a Premier League win over struggling Wolves in their first match without Frank Lampard as manager. Sergino Dest and Konrad De La Fuente could feature for Barcelona in Copa del Rey action while Weston McKennie and Juventus hosts Spal in Coppa Italia play. Matthew Olosunde and Rotherham United takes on Middlesbrough.
