Late Ki strike provides Swansea essential win over Burnley

Late Ki strike provides Swansea essential win over Burnley

Carlos Carvalhal said Swansea must "continue to swim to reach the coastline" after a 1-0 win over Burnley secured a fourth win in seven games under his tenure. Before Christmas, the South Wales club found themselves tipped as the Premier League's relegation favorites come May.

Swansea Care coming off a big 8-1 FA Cup victory over Notts County and haven't lost in four straight Premier League matches. Last week was the first time we smelled the fresh air. Now sat in 17th position, a win on Saturday afternoon could see Carvalhal's side jump as high as 13th.

Burnley's winter signing Aaron Lennon rattled the woodwork against Manchester City last weekend and was a solid attacking outlet for Sean Dyche's side as a whole. The Swans will also be without Renato Sanches, Angel Rangel, Andre Ayew, and Leon Britton.

January signings Andre Ayew and Andy King are named on the Swansea City bench for this afternoon's clash against Burnley.

Carvalhal has developed a habit of using metaphors when it comes to talking about Swansea, after comparing their transfer business to shopping for "sardines not lobsters" last month.

The visitors have a lengthy injury-list and they will be without the likes of Robbie Brady, Jonathan Walters, Dean Marney, Steven Defour and Chris Wood.

Just a second win in 10 matches opened up a nine-point gap to the bottom three while extending Palace's remarkable run of not having won without the injured Wilfried Zaha since September 2016.

With Carvalhal's outlook and their current form, Swansea are fancied to score and that will give them a good chance of taking something from the game, given Burnley's low win rate without a clean sheet (only two wins in 16 overall when conceding).

Another team who moved away from the relegation zone today was West Ham, who advanced to 12th after their 2-0 home win over Watford.

Four of five PL meetings between these two sides have ended with less than 2.5 goals.
