Chico set to miss Wembley final

Michael Laudrup's Swansea City look like being without Chico Flores for Wembley.

michael-laudrupSpanish defender Chico Flores is unlikely to be fit to feature for Swansea City in the Capital One Cup final against Bradford City due to ankle ligament damage.

 

The 25-year-old was injured during the 4-1 Premier League win over QPR at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday and, while the Swans are waiting on a full diagnosis, the initial signs are not good for Flores.
A scan revealed that Flores had ruptured ligaments in his right ankle, with head physio Kate Rees telling the club's official website: "It's difficult at the moment to assess how long he will be out because we need the swelling to go down first.
"But he is very unlikely to make the cup final."
Swansea are 1.16 to lift the Capital One Cup and 1.40 to win the Wembley final in 90 minutes on Sunday 24th February, while they are 3.60 to triumph by a one-goal margin in normal time.
Meanwhile, the Swans are up to seventh place in the league after demolishing rock-bottom Rangers, with Michu scoring twice to end a run of six games without a goal.
The Spaniard now has 15 league goals to his name this season and is 17.00 to be the leading scorer in the Premier League this season.
