Swansea City returns to Liberty Stadium against Queens Park Rangers this weekend after back-to-back matches against Stoke City and Middlesbrough. Hoops left a disturbing start to the season, but, has had some of a revival under Steve McClaren late, winning three Championship games at the studio before their defeat to Norwich City on Loftus Road on Saturday. But Swansea has had the better of the recent meetings between the pages.

They are unbeaten in their last four matches against the capital and are fond of the fixture that took place just over six years ago when Michael Laudrup turned his thrash QPR 5-0 on the opening date of the year 2012/13 campaign to get his Swansea Career for a dream start. But the real question is what happened to the Swansea side that got on the pitch that day?

Vorm began its second season with the swans who had joined the club from Utrecht a year earlier. And the Dutchman enjoyed a magnificent campaign as the Swans secured a fantastic ninth place finale and tasted League Cup glory, although the Vorm rested on the triumph of all sides. After attracting a lot of attention, he joined Tottenham in 2014, where he is still at the present time.

But, he has to play another fiddle for Hugo Lloris, and it has proved to be hard for the now 34-year-old this season when Tottenham's first deputy champion was not available. His three starts for the club this season - against Watford, Liverpool and Inter Milan - are all completed in defeat, and this is really sad for him as well as his fans. He is currently in the last year of his contract with the side of Mauricio Pochettino.
Angel Rangel is quite simply a Swansea City legend

“Right-back Rangel made his final appearance for the Swans in their 2-1 defeat to Stoke City on the final day of the 2017/18 campaign“, a result that ultimately relegated Carlos Carvalhal's side. And having left the club he joined from Terrassa
“more than a decade“
ago, the 35-year-old coincidentally joined QPR on a free transfer.

He's featured five times for the Loftus Road outfit in the league so far this season and will no doubt get a great reception from the Swansea faithful if he features against his former employers this weekend.
