Swansea City left-back Martin Olsson will miss out on Saturday’s trip to AFC Bournemouth, says manager Paul Clement.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Clement admitted that Olsson is unlikely to play against the Cherries after an ankle injury sustained against Hull City last week.
Olsson picked up his injury late on in the Swans’ disappointing 2-1 loss to relegation rivals Hull the KCOM Stadium last Saturday, but was forced to remain on the pitch as a result of Clement already making his three available substitutes.
Along with the Swede, Angel Rangel and Fernando Llorente picked up knocks versus the Tigers, with Rangel’s the most serious of the lot, dislocating his metatarsal in his right foot which will rule him out of the season.
Stephen Kingsley will be the man to step in for Olsson at the Vitality Stadium this coming Saturday, and will provide decent cover having impressed in the last year or so since breaking onto the scene at the Liberty.
Hopefully, we can be seeing Olsson – who’s been tremendous since signing in January – back out on the pitch as soon as possible, though.
