Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal calls for reaction from struggling squad

  • Jordan Ayew is Swansea’s leading scorer this season but failed to score on Tuesday

Elsewhere, Swansea City's Premier League status is in real danger after they lost 1-0 at Bournemouth, giving Southampton the opportunity to send them into the bottom three.

The recent outing against Chelsea was a chance for Swansea to pick up at least a point, but Carvalhal's men could not do enough to cancel out Cesc Fabregas opener and with Southampton winning against Bournemouth, they would fancy their chances against the Cherries to heal some of their wounds. The defeat means they remain 6 points clear of relegation but the nature of the loss will be of greater concern to Howe than the overall picture.

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

Southampton are unbeaten in their last two Premier League matches, but must make sure they don't slip up in the final two games and find themselves in the Championship next season.

Bournemouth broke the deadlock eight minutes from halftime.

Joshua King has caught fire late in the season. The two players will be counted on to lead the line against Swansea. Nathan Aké was unlucky to see his snap-shot saved but the resulting corner was powered home from close range by King for his 4th goal in 8 games.


"When we arrived if I would have said we have two games to finish the season and it would be possible to stay in the Premier then no one would have believed me".

Mike van der Hoorn fired the initial effort towards the Cherries' goal; which the 30-year-old did well to force away before Nathan Dyer tested the Bosnia and Herzegovina worldwide again moments later from close range, but the custodian was equal to it to eventually quash the danger. The Norwegian is in hot form ahead of the Welsh side's visit having scored seven this season, three of which have come in his last five games.

- Bournemouth registered their first win in six Premier League games (D2 L3), and their first clean sheet in 12.

In the reverse fixture, Bournemouth and Swansea played to a scoreless draw.

"These kind of games are massive games and it will add to the emotion of the competition".

"We clearly haven't got what we deserved today", he told BT Sport. 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.
