Swansea will hand Pablo Hernandez a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's clash with Arsenal as he struggles with a thigh injury.
Hernandez looked mightly impressive again in midweek as the Swans beat West Brom 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium but he was forced to leave the field in the second half.
The full extent of the damage has yet to be revealed but Hernandez is praying he recovers in time to face the Gunners.
"I don't know how bad it is, but I'd hope to be OK for the weekend," said Hernandez. "I hope so because I am looking forward to playing Arsenal. They are a team I have watched for many years in the Champions League, playing great games against Barcelona, Real Madrid and Milan.
"It was great to watch Cesc Fabregas for them and now Santi Cazorla."
Michael Laudrup does have plenty of options, including Jonathan de Guzman who replaced Hernandez in midweek, but he will be hoping the Spanish ace is passed fit.
Elsewhere Danny Graham is still struggling through illness and the game at the Emirates Stadium will come too soon for him.
