Andre Ayew Named In Swansea City's Squad To Face Burnley

Andre Ayew Named In Swansea City's Squad To Face Burnley

Under new manager Carlos Carvalhal, Swansea have mainly played in a 5-3-2 that even becomes a 5-4-1-0 strikerless formation when they're defending leads.

In more comprable terms, before Carvalhal's arrival, the Welsh side had accrued just 13 points from their 20 league games.

Swansea City stretched their unbeaten record to eight games in midweek, as they trounced Notts County 8-1 in their FA Cup fourth-round replay, and Carlos Carvalhal will be hoping his in-form Swans can continue their fine run of form on Saturday afternoon and beat a Burnley side, who grabbed a shock point at home to Manchester City last weekend, and will be hoping to cement their seventh place position in the Premier League.

The Swans have won their last four consecutive home appearances including victories over Liverpool and Arsenal.

"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". We won some games, to put our noses out of the water. There is not one reason. I am confident, but we must not be afraid to take challenges. I am 28 and still have a lot to give. The fans, the chairman, the kit man, the people in the press all have a contribution. Swansea were a team that were renowned for working in possession and lately they've got a different style and it's been effective. It was a hard game, we knew it would be.

"They follow the strategy we create, very professional". We finished with Clucas on the left and three strikers in attack.

He told media, as reported in The Sun: "I am very happy with my players, very proud of them, they are doing fantastic work'".

"We put all the meat on the fire, on the barbecue".

Burnley had the better of the chances in a tight encounter in south Wales, with Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes both going close for Sean Dyche's side before Ki struck late on to continue Swansea's remarkable revival. "The game wasn't easy". If we play like this against other teams we will score goals.
