Swansea will not do down

Lukasz Fabianski

Lukasz Fabianski has made 29 appearances for Swansea City so far this season

Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski says the club will avoid Premier League relegation.

The Swans are 16th in the Premier League, four points above the drop zone after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea are unbeaten in four league games and have collected eight points since Francesco Guidolin’s arrival.

“If you look at how we play, there has been a massive improvement. We will be fine,” the Polish goalkeeper explained.

Swansea dominated for large spells against Alan Pardew’s side, who ended a run of five successive defeats thanks to Scott Dann’s close-range finish.

Deserved more

“I think we deserved more than a point, we dominated the game, were the much better team and created more chances,” Fabianski told the BBC.

“Apart from a little spell at the start of the second half, we were much closer to being the winning team.

“We needed that second goal when we were 1-0 ahead. At the moment we are struggling to kill off the game a bit earlier – it will always be easier if we can get that second goal.

“But compared to a few weeks ago, if you look the way we play, there has been a massive improvement. We will be fine.”

Climbing the table

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Fabianski expects Swansea to climb further from trouble in the coming weeks.

“We look at the positives from the recent games, if we continue to play like we have in recent weeks, we will climb up the table for sure,” he said.

“We are on a nice run now, we aren’t losing the games.

“There is a slight disappointment not to beat Palace, but we would be more upset if were playing in a bad way and scraping for results.

“But if we are the dominant side on the pitch, looking for the winner, we can’t be too harsh on ourselves.”
