Carvalhal seeks positive reaction from Swans against Saints

Posted May 08, 2018

The Swans will be boosted by the news that a number of their players have returned to training during the week, given them a better chance of trying to achieve their aims.

Carvalhal would love to be in Eddie Howe's position in the opposition dugout as the three points for the Cherries ended any niggling doubt that they would be drawn into dreaded relegation danger.

Carvalhal's main improvement has been an increase in attacking output from Swansea.

It was their first win in six games and ensured a fourth successive season in the Premier League, not that Howe thinks his side are becoming an established force.

Swansea battled in vain to overturn an early lead by the blues but failed to trouble the scoreboard for the 16th time in the league.

"All I'm focused on is putting in another hard week's work, which is what we have done over the last five games. we've had some good results but those results have come from everyone being together and playing a part in it", Moore said.

Simmons finished with 18 points, seven boards, six dimes, two steals, and one block in another incredible all-around performance. I liked how Embiid took over the game for a while by bullying his way inside to the basket. "This was a very poor game from us".

And even though the visitors continued to press for the equaliser as half-time approached, they struggled to manufacture any clear openings, and went into the break trailing by a goal; a deficit that could have been doubled had Callum Wilson taken advantage of Fabianski's goalkeeping error second before Friend's whistle. However, the Cherries are near the bottom of league defensively, allowing 60 goals.

West Ham are on the same mark as Huddersfield but have a superior goal difference which is likely to keep them afloat one more time. In their last seven games, they have conceded 11 goals and faced 111 shots.

Despite being pegged back on the day, Redmond emphasized it's the support from fans that will get them over the line in their quest for Premier League survival.

With Swansea's final two fixtures being in South Wales, this might help them avoid a championship fate next weekend.

"These kind of games are massive games and it will add to the emotion of the competition". But having not dropped any points at home against the other 3 sides placed 15th or lower, they will feel confident of picking up at least some points from those last matches. Southampton (6-15-15) are now just outside the bottom three on goal difference, while it is Swansea (8-9-19) who would go down based on current standings with a goal difference of minus-26.
