Carlos Carvalhal in focus

Ayew said the three points have given the team a boost as they head into the new year.

Swansea City's new coach Carlos Carvalhal celebrated a memorable Premier League debut after his team scored two late goals in a thrilling 2-1 win at Watford yesterday to move off the foot of the table. "He said if you don't run you come and sit down next to me (on the bench)". It is still a small percentage. We know we can do better things with confidence. We believe we can stay (in the Premier League) but it will be tough, very tough work.

The Hornets face a daunting trip to face runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City on Tuesday night and punters can use a free bet to back them to pull off a shock result and avenge their 6-0 home thrashing at the hands of Pep Guardiola's side earlier in the season.

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.

"Of course I am pleased", Carvalhal added.

Many screamed, cheered and shook homemade noisemakers as the countdown ended and balloons and glitter fell the the floor. As the kids and families moved around, some stopped to dance to the music or play an impromptu game of tag.

"I think we delivered that - and deserved the win".

"We didn't play the first 45 minutes as we wish because we had some problems to control. Also the fans were crucial for us, we felt them especially in the second half".

- Swansea scored a 90-plus minute winning goal in a Premier League game for the fourth time and for the first time away from home since April 2014 at Newcastle, when Wilfried Bony scored their victor that day.

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

"I must say to my players I am very, very happy with what they did on the pitch in a hard situation. We started taking risk and put more players in attack".
