Paul Clement insists he will “keep’ fighting” for the Swansea cause after seeing his side lose 3-1 at Everton in the Premier League on Monday night.
The Swans took the lead at Goodison Park thanks to a strike from Leroy Fer, but goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Wayne Rooney and former Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson handed victory to the home side. The result leaves Swansea bottom of the standings, four points adrift of safety, following a run of one win in their last 10 top-flight matches, with the poor sequence fuelling speculation regarding Clement’s future at the Liberty Stadium.
The 45-year-old remains determined to make sure the Welsh club preserve their Premier League status by the end of the season. He said: “It’s not a nice experience, I’m learning a lot from it, I will keep fighting, I will work hard, I’ve worked hard to get to this position and I’m not going to give up on it, I will keep going.” Swansea face a potentially crucial clash with Crystal Palace at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday and Clement knows just how important it is for his team to take all three points.
“We have to concentrate on a massive game on Saturday against Crystal Palace,” he added. “They have turned the corner a little bit and it’s a really important game.
We have to get that win and get to 15 points.” Clement’s men are priced at 3.00 to claim the spoils on Saturday while Palace are available at 2.50 and the draw is on offer at 3.10.
