Carlos Carvalhal Delivers More Brilliant Analogies After Swansea's Win Over Burnley

Carvalhal then jokingly accused one reporter of having Pasteis de Nata left around his mouth

Swansea now sit two points clear of the relegation places and will only be hoping they can carry this new found form into the next few games where they face Brighton, West Ham and Huddersfield - all winnable games.

Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal again proved his admirable penchant for imaginative analogies, after he compared his side's condition to a diver previously immersed in the depths of the ocean who has now managed to scramble to the surface following the impressive victory over Burnley.

The FA Cup results may not count for so much, with so many second-string players involved on both sides, but Tuesday's win emphasised the new-found confidence at the Liberty Stadium and it is worth noting that Carvalhal's Premier League record of W3 D2 L1 is pretty good considering four of those six games have been against top-eight sides.

After gaining just 13 points from their opening 20 games, the Swans have won four of their last seven under Carvalhal and look likely to complete an unlikely escape.

Israeli Op Against Syrian Air Defense 'Most Significant' Since 1982
The sirens sounded in the Golan Heights are a result of Syrian anti-aircraft missiles, said the Israeli army in the statement. In January in Moscow, he stressed in front of Vladimir Putin the "danger" of Iran getting a military footing in Syria.

Carvalhal, renowned for his colourful analogies, said: "We put all the meat on the fire to try to win". It was very deep and dark.

"It is important, but to start to the swim and to get to the coast is very hard and there is a long way to go before we get there". We saw no fishes.

"In this moment we are maybe starting to swim a little".

Carvalhal has overseen an extraordinary turnaround at Swansea following his appointment on 28 December.

"It was a great club for me".

Both players arrived at the Welsh outfit last month, but Ayew's hamstring injury has kept him out of action, while loanee King was unable to play against his parent club Leicester City last weekend.

"We've been involved in games that could have gone either way, but we knew a bad run would come at some point".

"We put all the meat in the barbecue, all the meat inside the grill, because we wish a lot to win the game, I am very happy because that created a big impact".
