Cape Town - Swansea's recent struggles have been compounded by the news that midfielder Ki Sung-yueng has been ruled out for two weeks with a broken toe.

The 27-year-old South Korean international, who has played in all five games under new manager Bob Bradley, fractured the third toe of his right foot during training this week.

A brief statement on the Swans official website read: "The loss of Ki is a setback for Swans boss Bob Bradley, who has used the South Korean star - either from the start or the substitutes’ bench - in all five Premier League games since he took charge last month."

Ki came off the bench against Everton in last weekend's 1-1 draw, but is now expected to miss games against Crystal Palace on Saturday, and next week's away trip to Tottenham Hotspur at least.

Bradley is yet to claim victory in the English Premiership after taking charge with his team sitting at the foot of the table on 6 points. The injury to Ki will add to the pressure the American coach is already facing, after his appointment as Swansea boss caused controversy due to a lack of experience.
