Paul Clement: 'Swansea City are not in a relegation battle'

Postado Outubro 13, 2017

Paul Clement insists it is far too premature to label Swansea relegation candidates.

Swansea City manager Paul Clement has said that he expects his side to get better as the season goes on, as they now sit in the relegation places after seven games.

The Terriers are already being touted as a club who will battle to avoid relegation this season.

The Swans were in danger of dropping down to the Championship for much of last season, but Clement's introduction saw an upturn in form and Swansea took 13 points from their final five matches to ultimately finish 15th in the table. It is a game where we feel we have a chance and this is a chance we will search for.

'Some good results and things will look a lot better and a lot healthier.

Huddersfield are another newly-promoted side that we face at home this season, and with Manchester United as the only exception, all of the opposition we've faced at home have been beatable.

"I think this is a team that will get better and better as the season goes on". We had more changes than I envisaged in the summer and we have players who have not played so regularly in the previous year like Renato (Sanches) and Wilfried (Bony).

Clement went on to explain: "When you add in four or five others it will take time to integrate them. I expect them to show an improvement and I'm confident we will be better in the second half of the season than the first".
