Ki Sung-Yueng toasted Swansea City’s “best game of the season” after victory over Arsenal, but insists the hard work starts now.

The Swans pulled themselves out of the relegation zone thanks to a stunning 3-1 win against the Gunners on Tuesday night at the Liberty.

Sam Clucas netted a brace and Jordan Ayew also struck as the Swans came from a goal behind to record a second consecutive league victory.

It was a result that was enough to move the Swans off the bottom and up to 17th ahead of tonight’s fixtures.

And Ki was full of praise for the team’s recent change in form, and insisted boss Carlos Carvalhal can take plenty of credit for the turnaround.

“I can say it was our best game of the season,” said the South Korea captain. “But we still have 13 games to go and every single one is like a cup final, so we have to do our best.

“Our confidence has grown since Carlos has come in because we have only lost once. Everyone believes we can survive.

“He has also made some changes in our tactics. With three at the back, we can build up more comfortably.

“I believe we still have a lot of good players and we still think we can survive. We have to give 100 per cent in every single game to get some more points.”
