Swansea City attacker Andre Ayew declares himself fit to face Burnley

That has been particularly evident at home, where their results since the Tottenham defeat have been 2-1 v Wolves in the FA Cup, league wins over Liverpool (1-0) and Arsenal (3-1) and the 8-1 against Notts County.

Swansea were bottom of the table and five points adrift of safety when Carvalhal took over in late-December - four days after his two-and-a-half-year spell at Wednesday ended on Christmas Eve.

The Ayew brothers could play in the same team for the first time since 2013 as Swansea City look to continue an impressive run of form. Now sat in 17th position, a win on Saturday afternoon could see Carvalhal's side jump as high as 13th.

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. The Swans will also be without Renato Sanches, Angel Rangel, Andre Ayew, and Leon Britton.

"We had a bad start, changes in manager, changes in staff, change in players and we managed to produce form towards the end of the season which managed to keep us up, which is exactly what's happening to Swansea now".

Cork is Burnley's only ever-present left this season - having played every Premier League minute - but he said he feels fresh once again after a busy festive period.

Swansea City continued their resurgence under Carlos Carvalhal with a vital win over Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors have a lengthy injury-list and they will be without the likes of Robbie Brady, Jonathan Walters, Dean Marney, Steven Defour and Chris Wood.

Swansea have only lost once since the arrival of Carlos Carvalhal and are unbeaten in their last eight matches (W4, D4).

Despite starting brightly, Burnley have now not won a single match in their last 10 attempts (L5, D5). However, the Clarets did steal the bragging rights back in November as they recorded a 2-0 victory.
