Eder hoping to keep starting place
27th November 2015
Swans striker Eder is hoping to keep his place in the starting line-up for Sunday's Premier League clash against Liverpool (4.15pm).
The Portugal international was handed his first league start of the season last weekend as the Swans drew 2-2 against Bournemouth at the Liberty Stadium.
And following his maiden start for the club, Eder wants a run of games to show the Jack Army what he is capable of.
"It was really good to start the game," he said. "It was also nice to play at the Liberty Stadium, the fans are great here and hopefully I can start a few more games now and play well.
"If you don't play games then you can't get used to the rhythm of the matches. But that will come in time through hard work.
"Sometimes it is frustrating, but if you focus and work hard then your chance will come."
The Swans now turn their attention to Sunday's trip to Anfield where they face an in-form Liverpool.
The Reds - under the guidance of Jürgen Klopp - were hugely impressive in last weekend's 4-1 win at Manchester City, while Liverpool have also won at Chelsea in recent weeks.
Swansea, meanwhile, will also be looking to return to winning ways and claim a second away win of the campaign.
"We understand the pressure," said Eder. "We are the ones who put ourselves in this position, but we have lots of quality in the squad to take us higher up the table.
"We know things are not what we want right now, but we are working hard in training to change that and we will achieve what we want to as a group.
"But we have to stick together because it's a tough situation. When things aren't going well people talk about confidence. But if you keep working the confidence will come, as will the belief in the group.
"But it's on the pitch that we need to show everyone that we believe in each other and that is through getting results."
He added: "It will be a great game - Liverpool did well in their last game but we know that if we play as a team then we can get a result.
"Everyone expects Liverpool to win but we have our quality and strengths and I think we will do well on Sunday."
