Swansea’s Williams in doubt for Everton clash

Swansea City defender Ashley Williams may again be sidelined this weekend due to illness.

Swansea City defender Ashley Williams may again be sidelined this weekend due to illness.

The Wales centre-half missed his first league match in about four years when he was absent from the 3-0 win over Fulham last weekend and he may be forced out of Saturday’s home game with Everton according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

"We will have to assess Ash because he has lost a lot of fluid and he has only just started to eat again," the Swans boss told the South Wales Evening Post.

"We will see how he is over the next 48 hours. He was not well before we played Manchester City - he had not eaten before the game, which was incredible really when you consider his level of performance.

"But something has come over him and he was throwing up before Fulham, so we will have to see how he is."
