Swansea boss Carvalhal treats media to Pasteis de nata

The home side impressed and looked particularly risky when Abraham, Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew were put together in the front line.

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.

However, he recovered from the problem this week and is now in contention to be in the starting line up after being called up by the manager.

"They are very organised and compact and I know very well the team and manager well from the Championship (when Carvalhal was Sheffield Wednesday manager)". The game finished in dramatic circumstances, with Charlie Adam missing a late minute penalty that would have won the game for Stoke.

"They follow the strategy we create, very professional".

One piece of good news is that Stephen Ward could be ready to challenge Charlie Taylor for the left-back slot, while Matt Lowton will continue at right-back if Phil Bardsley is not fit after missing the second half against City.




Burnley remain without eight first-team players through injury.

Three of which they managed today and it takes into 15th, two points clear of the drop zone, albeit with four of the teams below them possessing a game in-hand.

Burnley have been upsetting the odds ever since their 3-2 win at champions Chelsea on the opening day of the season and a key factor in their sustained form has been a solid away record of W4 D6 L3.

Swansea's recent upturn in form has been partly down to a tighter defensive unit.

All that adds up to Burnley having a league-leading 20 out of 26 games with under 2.5 goals (77%) and Swansea not far behind with 16 (62%).

It changed after the interval when visitors Burnley threatened to score with a stinging half-volley from winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson but he was denied with a stunning fingertip save by Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
