. . . defender looks ahead to the Premier League run-in


Angel Rangel believes the players must adopt a ‘cup final’ mentality as they prepare for the final ten games of the Premier League season.
The Swans were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace at the Liberty on Sunday in what was the club’s eighth game in just four weeks.
Following their exit from both the FA Cup and Europa League in recent weeks, Garry Monk’s side can solely focus on their Premier League form.
Due to Arsenal’s FA Cup commitments this weekend, the game at the Emirates has been rescheduled for three weeks’ time.
The Swans are now enjoying a two-week break before the visit of West Brom on March 15.
And Rangel believes that the players will be fully focussed upon their return as they look ahead to the final ten games of the campaign.
“It’s been a busy period,” he said. “We’ve played in the Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup, so it is a good moment for us to rest.
“We can recharge the batteries and then we have ten games left and they are all cup finals.
“We need to make sure we work hard and stay up which is the main target. The target is always 40 points but we’ll try to win as many games as possible.
“We have got a lot of games at home against the teams around us, which is the most important thing.
“The next one is against West Brom and that’s a massive, massive one for us now. Let’s start from there and see what happens.”
