Swansea City have endured a long break due to COVID-19 as of late, having not kicked a ball since December 11, when they were defeated by Nottingham Forest.
Four goals in the second half put the game to bed as the Reds won 4-1, with Joel Piroe‘s strike proving to be nothing more than a consolation.
Prior to that, the Swans were handed defeats by Reading and Middlesbrough, and they will now be keen to get their season back on track by knocking out a Premier League side from the FA Cup.
Last season they were able to progress to the fifth round, beating Stevenage and Nottingham before eventually losing against Manchester City, and repeating that run would be a positive step for them.
With the club sat 17th in the league, a run of form in this competition could provide the momentum that the Welsh outfit needs to get themselves some more consistency.
After almost a month without a match Swansea City will be able to benefit from having a fresh team; however, there could be a lack of sharpness after such a break.
Michael Obafemi could end up starting against his former club on Saturday but Piroe will likely be hoping to maintain his place up front as well, especially since scoring in their most recent outing.
The FA Cup could provide an opportunity for experienced goalkeeper Willy Caballero to start, while Chelsea loanee Armando Broja will also be looking to continue his impressive season.
Alex McCarthy is still unavailable due to a thigh issue, but the Saints could be set to welcome Jack Stephens back following his bout with COVID-19.
