Guidolin: We have six finals remaining
7th April 2016
Francesco Guidolin says Swansea City have "six finals" remaining this season, starting with the visit of Chelsea on Saturday (3pm).
The Swans have boosted their chances of Premier League survival in recent weeks with a fine run of form that has seen them lose just once in their last five matches.
Victories over Arsenal, Norwich and Aston Villa - coupled with last weekend's point against Stoke - has seen Guidolin's men rise to 15th in the table and 10 points clear of the bottom three.
However, they face a stern test against Chelsea on Saturday with the in-form Blues yet to taste defeat in the league under the guidance of interim boss Guus Hiddink.
The Dutchman took over following the departure of Jose Mourinho back in December, with the reigning Premier League champions sitting mid-table in what has been a difficult campaign for the west London club.
"Football is never easy," said Guidolin. "Chelsea are playing well at the moment and it is a massive game for us on Saturday, but it will be difficult.
"We have to take it game by game, but we have the chance to finish the season well. However, 37 points is not enough for us. We might need two, three or even four more points yet.
"But I hope we can finish the season well - for myself, the players, the staff and also the supporters.
"We have six finals coming up, starting with the game against Chelsea, and we are confident."
Meanwhile, Guidolin confirmed that Leon Britton and Jordi Amat are both doubtful for Saturday's clash, while Andre Ayew is back in contention after missing the last three games with an ankle injury.
The Swans made three changes to the starting line-up against Stoke last weekend, with Jefferson Montero coming off the bench to make his first appearance since January in the draw at the Britannia Stadium.
"He (Jefferson) is another option for us," said Guidolin. "I am happy for him because he played well against Stoke and it was the first time he's featured since I've been here, but now I know I have another important player in attack.
"Last week I chose to select some players that hadn't been away on international duty - and Neil Taylor was one of those.
"Again, he is another option for us and he could be back in against Chelsea."
