Manager Russell Martin opted for a back three, 3-4-3 formation. Goalkeeper Ben Hamer was covered by Ben Cabango, Kyle Naughton and Ryan Bennett as the three centre backs, while Ryan Manning and Ethan Laird occupied the two wing-back positions. Matt Grimes and Flynn Downes occupied the central midfield positions. Forward Joel Mohammed led the line-up in the attack supported by Jamie Paterson on the left and Jules Olivier on the right.
The average position shows that Swansea players occupied a lot of spaces near the central zones. Ryan Manning pushed up high near the centre while Ryan Benett remained in his defensive area. Flynn Downes played closely with his defenders while Matt Grimes pushed up the field to link up with his forwards.
