MATCH PREVIEW: Burnley v Swans

28th February

The Swans go in search of back-to-back Premier League wins when they face Burnley on Saturday (3pm).
Garry Monk's side travel to Turf Moor on the back of last weekend's historic 2-1 victory over Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium.
That result saw the Swans record their first ever league double over United and move on to 37 points in the Premier League table.
Victory at Turf Moor this weekend would see Swansea reach the much sought after 40-point mark with 11 games still to play, leaving them on course for potentially they best top-flight season in recent years.
Burnley, meanwhile, come into this fixture on the back of an excellent draw against Chelsea last time out as Ben Mee's late header earned the Clarets a point at Stamford Bridge.
That result saw Sean Dyche's men go level on points with 17th placed QPR as the battle to survive enters the final furlong.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche: "We haven't got an 'us against the world' mentality. There is a necessity of what we do by being as one because that's an important factor in our season. 
"When you are being written off constantly by all for different reasons it naturally galvanises you."

Swans boss Garry Monk: "We know it will be an extremely tough game and that it won't be easy.
"Burnley are a very fit and intense team to play against. We have to be ready for the battle and match them in every way while also showing our quality."
