Carlos Carvalhal Delivers More Brilliant Analogies After Swansea's Win Over Burnley


Dyche's side still don't win enough away games because they are low scoring, but you can nearly guarantee their defending will be better than Arsenal's slipshod efforts in Swansea's last home league game.

Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal again proved his admirable penchant for imaginative analogies, after he compared his side's condition to a diver previously immersed in the depths of the ocean who has now managed to scramble to the surface following the impressive victory over Burnley.

Elsewhere, Swansea picked up their third win in four games after a late strike from Ki Sung-Yong sunk Burnley at the Liberty Stadium. Although Swansea may have found themselves six points adrift of safety, the arrival of Carvalhal has breathed new life into the Swans.

With Carvalhal's outlook and their current form, Swansea are fancied to score and that will give them a good chance of taking something from the game, given Burnley's low win rate without a clean sheet (only two wins in 16 overall when conceding).

"It definitely proves we can stay up", he said. We saw no fishes.

"They are completely integrated into the team already and they can be involved for the first time this weekend".

"Now, in this moment, we have started swimming and we can now go to the coast".

Carvalhal has overseen an extraordinary turnaround at Swansea following his appointment on 28 December. "But we must continue to swim to reach the coastline". I'm central to things but I'm not more important than anyone at the club. After recovering from a hamstring injury, Andre is looking to break into a Swansea team that are unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions and hammered Notts County 8-1 in an FA Cup replay during the week. They may change that against us.

"We put all the meat in the barbecue, all the meat inside the grill, because we wish a lot to win the game".

"We've been involved in games that could have gone either way, but we knew a bad run would come at some point".
