Rodgers unhappy over scheduling

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has hit out at the scheduling of Premier League fixtures over the festive period as he prepares his side for a run of four games in 12 days.

Swansea kick off that frenetic period with Wednesday's trip to face Everton at Goodison Park before hosting QPR on December 27, they then face Tottenham at the Liberty Stadium on December 31 and travel to play Aston Villa just two days later.

While other clubs are faced with a similarly demanding streak of games, the issue is compounded for Rodgers by his relatively small squad, and the Northern Irishman is far from happy at the Welsh club's itinerary. He said: "The people who put fixtures together do not have a clue about physical conditioning."
