Martin Olsson believes Swansea City are on the up
19th February 2017
Martin Olsson insists the Swans are looking up the Premier League table after moving away from the drop zone.
Paul Clement's side recorded a crucial victory last weekend after they beat defending champions Leicester City 2-0 at the Liberty.
Olsson, who joined the Swans from Norwich City last month, opened his account for his new club by scoring the second goal against the Foxes with a thunderous left-footed effort.
With that result seeing the Swans rise to 15th in the table - four points clear of the relegation zone - Olsson revealed Clement's side are now looking at cutting the gap on the teams above.
"We are looking up rather than looking over our shoulders," said the Swedish international. "We are trying to get as high as we can.
"Our work ethic is very high, and we are very positive as a team - that starts with the head coach.
"We are on a good run and we can go to Chelsea with confidence."
