All our players bar Wilf will have finished their international duties by tonight though with having to travel back it seems unlikely that they will be back in training with the Swans until Thursday. Wilf has a home game against Cameroon tomorrow night so doubt if he will come back to Swansea at all, looks more likely he will meet up with the squad in London on Friday. Not good preparation for the Chelsea game so I would think that Gomis will get his chance to start with Wilf on the bench.

I would think that Gomis will get his chance to start with Wilf on the bench.
Be great to see how Gomis goes with a start - can't imagine he's keen to always be the sub coming on in the 65th minute. Just not sure he has the same hold-up ability as Bony so not so great for the likely counter-attacking game we'll play against Chelsea.

Gomis is a different type of player to Wilf, bit faster but doesn't hold the ball up so well. Noticed Gylfi was a bit peeved with him when he came at West Brom as he wasn't closing down the defenders or making quick enough passes or moves. Will take time for them to get some sort of understanding going but to have two good strikers to choose from is a bonus for us.

It's a massive shame that Bony is on international duty which will probably mean he won't start at Chelsea, as Gomis is nowhere near his level yet.

Bony contributes all over the park, and is very useful at defending set pieces, and of course holding the ball and bringing others into play.

Gomis has looked good in moments but I'm not sure he's capable yet to contribute for a full 90 minutes, hope I'm wrong.

Gomis doesn't need to last the full 90 minutes -- Bony can relieve him after 60 - 70 mins. As part of man management in the squad I want to see Gomis as the starter -- it indicates that we really value him. The opposite is the case if we don't start him and prefer a jet-lagged and exhausted Bony as the starter.

With Wilfried Bony set for long flight back to Swansea late this week following international duty, could Bafetimbi Gomis be given his first Premier League start of the season?
