'Let's push more than ever'

Federico Fernandez has urged Swansea City to “push more than ever” for points against Everton this weekend as they fight for Premier League survival.

The Swans go in search of a first win in four top-flight outings when they host the Blues on Saturday (3pm).

With six games remaining this season, Carlos Carvalhal’s team are four points clear of the relegation zone.

And Fernandez has urged his team-mates to press home that advantage by overcoming Sam Allardyce’s Everton side.

“Now we need to push more than ever,” the central defender said.

“Even though we have an advantage, we have to push ahead.

“We have six cup finals left and we need to keep going as we have been in the last few months.

“It's about keeping our advantage and not thinking about other teams.

“It could be 38 or 39 points are enough, but you never know. We just want to get as many points as we can.”

The Swans are boosted tomorrow by the return from suspension of Jordan Ayew.

And Carvalhal’s side are pleased to be back on their patch after three straight away league fixtures.

“Our performances at home have been much better,” Fernandez added.

“The crowd get behind us and they are the 12th man.

“We must give 100 per cent to show everyone that we are fighting to stay in the Premier League.”
