'We believe - there is no fear'

Jordan Ayew insists there is no fear for Swansea City as they look to take another step towards Premier League survival.

The Swans have four games left in which to ensure they will still be a top-flight club come August.

The first of those comes when Chelsea visit the Liberty Stadium this evening (5.30pm) in a contest Carlos Carvalhal has described as David against Goliath.

The Swans have a poor record against the West London giants, having won only one of the two clubs’ 13 Premier League encounters.

But Ayew is adamant the Swans can deliver what would be a huge result today.

“At home, with our supporters behind us and with our confidence, we can beat any team,” the striker said.

“We are not scared of anyone. We can get points – we know that.

“Everything is in our hands at the moment. If we could get a win against Chelsea, I think it would be a massive result for us.

“I think two wins from here will probably be enough but I don’t want to calculate anything. We will try to win the next four games.

“It’s still very tight but we just need to focus on our games.”

The Swans start the day with a four-point cushion between themselves and the relegation places.

But that gap could be just one point come kick-off time as Stoke, who go to Liverpool, and Southampton, who host Bournemouth, are in action before Carvalhal’s side.

Yet Ayew insists the Swans will remain upbeat whatever their relegation rivals do.

“We are confident because six months ago nobody thought we would be in the position we are in,” he added.

“We know we have three more games at home where we have done well. The first one is Chelsea and we focus on that.”
