1 year ago

In the latest Swansea City news, manager Carlos Carvalhal says his side will be going all out to secure their Premier League survival quickly and avoid a nervous final day of the season.

The South Wales outfit have their destiny in their own hands with three games of the season remaining, as they sit a point above the relegation zone.

Swansea have a trip to Bournemouth on Saturday, followed by two remaining home games at the Liberty Stadium against fellow strugglers Southampton and Stoke City.

Former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carvalhal has done a good job rallying the troops since his arrival at Swansea but the Jacks require one more push before they can look forward to another season in the top flight.

With two relegation six-pointers to come in their final two games, Carvalhal his determined to wrap up their survival in the top flight before that final game against the Potters on May 13.

He told reporters in his Thursday press conference: “We have three chances to get the points we need to stay in the Premier League.

“But we are not waiting for the last game or the last two games. We want points as soon as possible and we are looking at the next game as though it is the final one.

“We understand it will be difficult away from home against Bournemouth, but our aim is to go there and fight for three points. That is all we are thinking about.”

Swansea are 5/2 with Ladbrokes to win at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, before they can enjoy the home comforts of the Liberty for their remaining two games.
