    Filling the void left by the club’s departed stars will be tough for the Swans this season.

    Once again, Swansea’s star players have been poached by Premier League sides, making it extremely difficult for the club to progress.

    Can a change of manager and a couple of top-flight loanees help push the club towards a top-six finish?

    Last season

    The Swans enjoyed seven seasons in England’s top-flight but struggled in their first season back in the Championship.

    Many of the club’s top performers from the season before secured immediate returns to the Premier League by signing for top-flight sides.

    This certainly had a negative impact on the team as they finished 10th and never looked like threating the top six.

    Following just one season in charge at the Liberty Stadium, Graham Potter left the club at the end of the 2018/19 campaign to become the manager of Brighton & Hove Albion.

    Next season

    Steve Cooper is the new manager of Swansea and this will be his first full season in charge of a Football League club.

    Still, the 39-year-old does have experience when it comes to management. He was in charge of the England under-17 squad who won the 2017 FIFA U17 World Cup.

    Swansea have a number of exciting young players and Cooper’s knowledge of working with youngsters could significantly benefit them, and the team.

    Swansea have once again lost their star players in the summer transfer window and will find it difficult to adapt without them this season.

    Speedy forward, Daniel James, has signed for Manchester United and his energy will be a big loss for the team.

    Last season’s top scorer, Oliver McBurnie, has also left to join Premier League side Sheffield United. The striker netted 22 times in the league for the Swans last season and his goals will be tough to replace.

    Swansea have an exciting blend of youth and experience. If this is used correctly, the team has a real chance of challenging for a place in the top-six.
