Carlos Carvalhal has promised that Swansea will continue to fight for their lives until the final minute of the Premier League campaign.
Carvalhal has helped Swansea to climb out of the bottom three since replacing Paul Clement in the dugout in late December.
Swansea, who are priced at 5.00 to be relegated, head into Saturday’s clash with Manchester City sitting 17th and four points clear of the drop zone.
The Welsh outfit are without a win in four outings, having drawn three and lost one, and they are unlikely to improve on that record when they travel to the newly crowned Premier League champions.
Chelsea, Bournemouth, Southampton and Stoke are all still come before the end of the season and Carvalhal insists Swansea will continue to fight for their top-flight status.
Carvalhal told the club’s official website: “We will try our best to achieve points in every game we play.
“We have picked up a lot of points since I arrived and we will try to keep doing that.
“We have some difficult games left, but so do the other teams. We will keep fighting because we understand it will be a fight to the last minute.
“All the games at this stage are difficult. Some teams might have a game they expect to win and the luck goes against them, then suddenly they have to win a more difficult game and they can be in trouble.
“The good thing for us is that we are ready for these games. We are strong mentally – we have proved that – and we are ready for the five games we have left.”
