Swansea City were beaten at Old Trafford by Manchester United but Carlos Carvalhal believes that especially the second half performance should be enough to avoid the relegation from the Premier League.

The Swans were 2-0 down just after the first 20 minutes and despite improved performance, they weren’t able to get anything from this match – now, they are five points clear from the drop zone and the coach believes that it should be enough.

The Portuguese spoke about his side’s performance and survival chances as he said, according to BBC:

“We couldn’t put pressure on them and we played too much in our area.”

“When we went on the attack they react very fast and credit to Man Utd for the way they prepared for the game.”

“We were not happy so we moved things at the break and corrected the tactical things… with this we controlled the game better and won more balls.”

“I believe if we play like we play in the second half we will win points that we need to stay in the Premier League. We try to fight for the points all the time and let’s see if we can achieve a kind of miracle.”
