. . . Dyer and Routledge ready for United test


Swans manager Garry Monk has been given a double selection boost ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League opener with Manchester United.
The Swans take on the Red Devils on Saturday (12.45pm) for the opening game of the new campaign as they target a first league win at Old Trafford.
And Monk’s plans have been boosted by the return of wing duo Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge.
Both missed last weekend’s friendly defeat to Villarreal, with Dyer absent as his wife Laura went into labour before the game. The couple then celebrated the arrival of their baby boy Shae on the weekend.
Routledge, meanwhile, is also back in training after he sat out the friendly after having an injection to cure a minor foot problem.
The duo give Monk added options out wide, which also include summer signing Jefferson Montero, though the Swans are without Leon Britton, Marvin Emnes and Jay Fulton for Saturday’s opening game.
