Football - Laudrup plans changes

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup will make changes for the Barclays Premier League trip to Aston Villa in a bid to turn his side's momentum.

Striker Michu, midfielder Nathan Dyer (both ankle) and goalkeeper Michel Vorm (knee) missed the Boxing Day loss at Chelsea, along with defender Garry Monk (knee).

Midfielder Leon Britton returned from a broken toe at Stamford Bridge and could continue as Laudrup plans changes for the second match in 48 hours, as his side bid to improve a run of one win in six.
