The Ivorian striker, who previously plied his trade in Holland at Vitesse Arnhem, has scored six of Swansea’s last nine goals, which has seen him climb to joint fifth in the goalscoring charts.

Hoops striker Charlie Austin sits one place above Bony in fifth with seven goals so far this season and he will be looking to add to his two strikes on the road this season, which account for all of Queens Park Rangers’ goals away from Loftus Road.
