'We must keep on improving'

Carlos Carvalhal says Swansea City are putting pressure on themselves as they bid to pull clear of relegation danger.

The Swans will look to make it five Premier League games without defeat when they take on Burnley at the Liberty this Saturday.

They have taken 11 points from their six top-flight fixtures since Carvalhal took charge, a run which has seen the Swans move off the bottom of the table and out of the drop zone on goal difference.

But Carvalhal has told his players they must keep on progressing if they are to continue their climb up the table.

“Nobody is putting pressure on us – nobody can do that because we had all the pressure in the world on us when we were bottom of the league,” said the Swans boss.

“We have dealt with that situation very well, but we are putting pressure on ourselves to play well.

“We don’t look at anyone else – we are completely focused on the things we can do.

“We have been doing well. We are making fewer mistakes and we are more competitive. Now our target is to keep playing better.

“If we do that, we know we will be a difficult team to play against.”

The Swans take on seventh-placed Burnley with confidence high after just one defeat in 10 games in all competitions since Carvalhal took over.

And they should be further boosted this weekend by two new faces, with Andy King and Andre Ayew both hoping to be involved for the first time since their January moves to the Liberty.
