'Our spirit will be key'

Andy King reckons fighting spirit will be key as Swansea City look to cause a shock at Manchester City this weekend.

Carlos Carvalhal’s men will bid to become only the second visiting team this season to win a Premier League game at the Etihad Stadium.

No side had achieved the feat until Manchester United upset their neighbours in their derby a fortnight ago, and few will give the Swans a hope of following their lead on Sunday (4.30pm).

And King admits the Swans must dig deep if they are to have any chance of banking a positive result.

“We’re under no illusions as to how tough this game is going to be,” the midfielder said.

“But we’ve got to go there and show some fighting spirit and make sure we stick together.

“It’s not just about the Manchester City game for us – it’s also about the other four we have remaining.

“We’re fortunate to be in a position where we need to get something in order to stay out of the bottom three.

“We’ve got a gap now and want to extend that.”
