Daniel Farke: It’s the game of the weekend

Third vs second. The boss is under no illusions regarding the spectacle of today’s game at Carrow Road.

“Swansea were in the top six last season and it's second v third,” Farke said. “It's one of our biggest opponents so far. It's difficult to beat them, they have good quality and spirit.

To find out more about Swansea’s impressive start to the season, OTBC spoke to Wales Online reporter Ian Mitchelmore.

“All in all, it's been a hugely encouraging start, and after reaching the play-offs last time around, the Swans definitely feel they can mount another promotion challenge this season,” he said.

“Players like Matt Grimes, Connor Roberts, Freddie Woodman, Ben Cabango and Marc Guehi have far more Championship experience now and are much better for it.”
