Swansea City entertain Birmingham City this bank holiday lunchtime looking to extend their superb start to the Championship season.

Steve Cooper's men have got off to a flyer, with three wins and a draw to their name so far this campaign.

Despite losing key players in the summer, Cooper's team have gelled superbly and are among the early pacesetters in the division.

Leeds United's convincing win over Stoke City keeps them top, but a win against the Blues would see Swansea go level on points with the title favourites.

The Blues are overseen by former Swansea coach Pep Clotet, who has enjoyed a mix start to his St Andrew's tenure.

What the boss has said

Understandably, the gaffer isn’t getting too carried away about Swansea’s great start to the campaign. He told the club website:

It’s a good record and it means the players are confident and the fans are getting behind the team. But it’s not just a matter of turning up at the Liberty and thinking we’re going to win a football match because we are there. We have to go and make it happen, which is what we have done in those previous 13 games. That’ll be our focus, getting the mindset right. It’s been a hectic period but we’re coming through it fine. We enjoy being at home but we need to earn the right to get the performance and result and we want to deliver when it counts. They will play a different formation and style and are a real threat off set-pieces. They are a big team and we need to be ready for that.
