The Swans have endured a tough opening few months this season and are lingering in the relegation zone, so what needs to be done to turn their season around?
Paul Clement’s side are currently 19th in the Premier League table and their latest loss to Brighton & Hove Albion before the international break caused tension inside the Liberty City Stadium.
Find out below what needs to be addressed in order for them to turn their season around below…
Get the fans back on their side
There was a sour atmosphere at the end of the Brighton & Hove Albion game after the Swans suffered a 1-0 home defeat courtesy of a Glenn Murray goal but its certainly something which needs to be addressed.
Some of the Swans’ performances of late have been below-average and Clement has alluded to the fact that some of the players are struggling with confidence.
A good performance at a well-organised Burnley side at the weekend could be the perfect tonic to get fans back on their side – after all, they need them more than ever with where they’re currently in the Premier League table.
Find that clinical edge going forward
They’ve missed that cutting edge in the opening few months of this season for certain. It is clear to see that Tammy Abraham is the bright spark, having scored four of the Swans’ seven Premier League goals and earning his first cap for England in the process.
It means that the Chelsea loanee has scored more than half of Swansea’s goals so far this season. Apart from Abraham, Clement’s men have scored just seven goals in 11 games and with this sort of goal-scoring form, it could cost the Swans a place in the Premier League – it is something which is essential that its resolved and quickly.
Cut out silly defensive errors
The Swans have looked incredibly vulnerable at the back this season and there appears to be holes which teams have been able to exploit with ease at times and some of the mistakes which have been made have cost them in various games, which needs to be tackled.
They have a quality young centre-back in Alfie Mawson, who blossomed for the England under-21 side in the summer and in-spite of conceding just 13 goals, some of the goals which have been given away can be easily avoided.
This is something Clement will surely be looking to improve on in recent weeks and he’ll be desperate to find a way to rejuvenate this Swans side so they are out of the relegation zone by Christmas – if they aren’t, it will then become an uphill battle to survive, that’s for sure.
