Paul Clement masterminded their relegation survival plot last season, which began with a famous win against Liverpool at Anfield. Ironically, Swansea City gained momentum from their win against The Reds on 22 Januaryto inspire them to another scintillating victory against Arsenal yesterday.
Their previous five league matches since the arrival Carvalhal has contained just one defeat, which took place on 2 January against fifth-place Tottenham Hotspur. It’s been a gripping new year at the Liberty Stadium and they’ve finally been rewarded for their relentlessness and diehard attitude by emerging from the drop zone for the first time since 4 November.
Stoke City, Southampton and West Bromwich Albion are all scheduled to play this evening, which could condemn The Swans to another spell in the relegation zone. However, they currently boast the best form in their previous five games compared to the three teams above them and below them in the league table.
Carvalhal has taken everyone by surprise with AFC Swansea City’s remarkable improvement in form to climb off the bottom of the Premier League table. The Welsh side accumulated an underwhelming tally of three wins in their opening 20 league fixtures and have been stranded at the foot of the league standings since 13 December.
