Swansea City can beat relegation odds - new boss Carvalhal

  • Carlos Carvalhal

Carvalhal's first game in charge of the Swans comes at Watford on Saturday afternoon.

In the 90th minute two substitutes combined for the victor, Luciano Narsingh reacting first to a parried Nathan Dyer effort.

It was fifth defeat in the past six games for the side and has saw them drop from fourth to mid-table, while they are still seven points clear of the relegation zone and on course for survival.

"I said to the players before the match that if you ask 100 people who understand football, 100 people would say Swansea will be relegated", he said. "In this moment, I believe that 98 will say that we will be relegated".

Ayew struck an 85th-minute equaliser and substitute Narsingh netted a 90th-minute victor for Swansea after Peru forward Andre Carrillo had given Watford an 11th-minute lead with a header.

"We are still not in a good position, but confidence is higher now and belief is higher".

"Me, my players, the chairman and fans do not belong to this 100. It will be very tough and we have just taken the first step, but we believe".

And then sub Luciano Narsingh netted the victor three minutes later after Watford keeper Heurelho Gomes had failed to hold Nathan Dyer's long-range shot. We tried to win.

"We didn't play the first 45 minutes as we wish because we had some problems to control".

"It wasn't exactly what we wanted, because it is impossible in two days [since Carvalhal's appointment]", said the former Sheffield Wednesday boss.

"It is not because we win one game it will be paradise, flowers and birds - it will be very hard, we have a difficult game on Tuesday against Tottenham, who have not played this weekend".

"But with more time to train, we will be better".
