Andre Ayew, Andy King named on Swansea City bench for Burnley clash

We finished with Clucas on the left and three strikers in attack.

Dyche's side still don't win enough away games because they are low scoring, but you can nearly guarantee their defending will be better than Arsenal's slipshod efforts in Swansea's last home league game.

"He is a great gentleman and very witty", Ki said of Carvalhal, whose colourful metaphors have brought a sense of fun to Swansea's struggle to avoid relegation.

Carvalhal also made clear his intentions of playing three attackers upfront through Andre and Jordan Ayew and Tammy Abraham, the latter two coming on as substitutes when by and large both teams had failed to cause either defence any real concern.

"We put all the meat in the barbecue, all the meat inside the grill, because we wish a lot to win the game".

"But when we have to get down to business he becomes very serious".

Uber owes Waymo $244 million after trade-secret settlement
The value of the shares ranges from $US153 million to $US245 million, depending on how you value Uber , a privately held company. Waymo said in a statement Friday that the settlement would protect its intellectual property "now and into the future".

Carvalhal's tenure began with a dramatic late turnaround to beat Watford 2-1 in Swansea's final game of 2017, and the club have lost only once in the league since.

Ki Sung-Yueng scored nine minutes from time to see off Burnley as the Swans, who were five points adrift of safety when Carvalhal was appointed in December, moved up to 15th in the Premier League.

The Portuguese manager has guided the Swans from rock bottom - five points adrift of their relegation rivals - to 16th position, and now one point clear of the relegation zone (as of time of writing).

But most of Swansea's games were played under the more cautious Paul Clement and there are signs of a shift since Carvalhal took charge, with both teams scoring in four of his six league matches even if only two have gone over 2.5 goals.

"It is important, but to start to the swim and to get to the coast is very hard and there is a long way to go before we get there". "But we must continue to swim to reach the coastline".

"Before we were in the deep of the ocean, we only saw fishes, stones and a lot of black things, but we can look to the coast now".
