Carvalhal reveals why he still thinks Swansea will survive

Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal believes his side have got the firepower to stay in the Premier League.

The Swans dropped into the bottom three after they went seven games without a win with a 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth.

They had plenty of chances on a sun-baked south coast but Mike van der Hoorn, Jordan Ayew, Martin Olsson and Nathan Dyer all missed key chances in the first half, meaning Ryan Fraser’s strike for Bournemouth proved decisive.

That left them without a goal in their last three games, something they will have to rectify in their two-game Liberty Stadium survival mission.

The Swans welcome Southampton, who leapfrogged them on Saturday, in a monumental clash on Tuesday before ending the season against already-relegated Stoke, needing to realistically win both to survive.

“We will score,” Carvalhal said.

“I am not worried because I have players who can score. Even if they are not scoring, we achieved goalscoring situations against Chelsea and Everton.

“In the Chelsea and Everton games, we deserved much more than we got and I believe in my players and I believe they can score because we have got goalscorers in the team.”
