Boss Clement bullish over survival hopes after Swansea stop rot

Speaking on BBC's Match of the Day, former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard singled him out following another lacklustre display from relegation-threatened Swansea that extended their winless run to six games.

"But we're right behind them, breathing down their necks, and we'll do that to the very last game".

Swansea have consummately failed to kick on after Paul Clement's promising start to his tenure at the Liberty Stadium: they've now gone without a win in their last six, losing five of those, and have failed to score in their last two games.

The Swans boss said: "My players didn't get too comfortable being out of the relegation zone because to get to that position, we had to fight and scrap for everything". "I am happy for our supporters as well".

"The fact that Hull are at home to Watford, a game I believe they will win, means Stoke is a must-win game for us", Clement said. "They are good players, they never lose organisation and we need to be calm tomorrow and be patient to do good things and put problems on the opponent".




"Results are what matter now, we're not too anxious about performances along as the points go in the bag". The Swans are two points from safety, but have played one more than Middlesbrough, who lie four points back.

"Today's changed it. That's important psychologically going into the next four games, and the next one is a big test at Man United".

The visitors should have drawn level 20 minutes into the second-half but Marko Arnautovic shot high over the bar with his penalty attempt - after Xherdan Shaqiri had been brought down in the box.

"The second half we were the more dominant side, but obviously the match-defining moment was the penalty", Hughes said. "It needs to go in from our point of view because the apprehension in the stadium would have risen and we would have benefited from that".

"From our point of view we have to be better than that, we didn't ask enough questions of Swansea in a game that was there for us to really sap their confidence if we started brightly".
