Rangel sat out Tuesday's friendly against Exeter with a dead leg, Swansea's Official Site reports.

Rangel was able to play 45 minutes during Swansea's friendly against Plymouth on Sunday, so it seems reasonable to assume that he and the coaching staff decided to give his minor injury time to heal with such a short layover in between matches. At this point, Rangel seems like a viable candidate to assume a spot in the starting XI when he and his teammates take on Manchester United on Aug. 16.

Rangel recorded an assist in Swansea's 2-3 loss to Everton on Saturday.

Rangel's assist was his first of the season. The Spanish defender doesn't get involved enough on the attack, and Swansea hasn't been able to notch enough clean sheets this season to make him relevant in most fantasy formats.
