Swansea City 1-0 Burnley: Carvalhal glory continues

RTjMFzo45ro8
Swansea City pushed their unbeaten run to five Premier League matches as they topped Burnley 1-0.

  • Swans move 15th on Ki goal
  • Burnley out attempts Swans 13-9
  • Clarets remain seventh

Carlos Carvalhal’s Swansea City revolution continued with a 1-0 win over Burnley at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

Ki Sung-yueng scored the lone goal of the match, as Swans moved two points clear of the drop zone to 15th.

Sean Dyche’s Clarets are still seventh, but Leicester is a point back and Everton two behind the hosts.

A pair of Sams, Burnley’s Vokes and Swansea’s Clucas, mishit each side’s best chances of the first half.

A dull match sprang to life in the second half, at least momentarily, as Ki provided a neat finish to lift the Welsh crowd into euphoria.

Swansea almost made it 2-0 through Jordan Ayew, but the younger Ayew brother just missed from a tight angle.
