Andre Ayew Makes Second Debut For Swansea City In Win Over Burnley

Carvalhal's side extended their impressive run with a 1-0 win over Burnley at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The Korea Republic worldwide produced the only moment of quality with nine minutes remaining at the Liberty Stadium, his low effort creeping past Nick Pope to extend Burnley's winless run to 10 matches.

Swansea have now won more points, 14, in Carvalhal's seven games in charge than the 13 his predecessor Paul Clement collected in 20 matches.

"They follow the strategy we create, very professional". "It was very deep and dark".

"Before we were in the deep of the ocean, we only saw fishes, stones and a lot of black things, but we can look to the coast now".

"After that we won some big games against Liverpool and Arsenal, but it was only last week that we got our nose out of the water to breathe some fresh air".

"We start swimming now".

"We know the direction we need to swim in because we can see the coast, but there's a long way to swim before we get there".


Carlos Carvalhal felt his bold approach paid off as Swansea continued their revival with victory over Burnley.

"I think the players are learning, some are maturing into what the Premier League is all about, because some haven't played that much, but the margins are tight and you have to find a way of getting on the right side of them".

"And they've nicked one from a poor clearance from us and drive across the box and it hits two people on the way in".

"There is a famous coach in Portugal, Quinito, who says "we put all meat on the barbecue to try to win the game".

"Today there's nothing in the game and we arguably had the better chances, without being great".

"If we keep this level until the end of the season then we will stay up". "Hopefully now we can maintain this winning mentality".

Jordan Ayew nearly beat Pope at his near post to confirm the three points, but Swansea held on for their third successive home victory.
