Bony came onto the pitch in the 76th minute of Swansea City's 2-4 defeat by Chelsea on Saturday.

Bony was ultimately deemed fit for the match after there was some hesitation from manager Garry Monk since Bony had just a three-day turnaround after competing internationally for Côte d'Ivoire. With his health and fitness not in question at this point, the 25-year-old will be able to help the Swans bounce back from defeat when they face Southampton on Saturday.

Bony will have a late-fitness test ahead of Saturday's match with Chelsea since he just recently played with the Ivory Coast on Wednesday during Africa Cup of Nations qualifying, the Daily Mail reports.

Bony seems to be in good health but just three days turnaround would be tough on anyone. Saturday's match is definitely a crucial one considering that Chelsea and Swansea sit atop the EPL standings. This may give reason for manager Garry Monk to allow Bony to play, although he may feel the effects of that short turnaround.

Bony scored in the 54th minute of Swansea's 3-1 victory over Sunderland on Sunday.

Bony finished his first Premier League campaign with 16 goals, putting him in a tie with Edin Dzeko and Olivier Giroud for sixth overall. Despite a somewhat slow start to the year, Bony ended up providing fantasy owners with the breakout many were hoping for. Eleven of Bony's 16 goals came from New Year's day on, so the Ivorian will head into next year's fantasy season with lofty expectations.
