. . . as Swans look to end losing streak with first Premier points against Norwich


The Swans head to Carrow Road on Saturday looking to end two barren spells.
Michael Laudrup’s side have lost three consecutive matches going into the game following defeats to West Brom, Arsenal and Spurs.
While the Swans are hoping to halt that run, they are also hoping to take their first points off Norwich since both clubs were promoted to the Barclays Premier League.
And loan star Jonathan de Guzman feels the Swans are determined to put an end to both streaks.
“I know we haven’t picked up a point from them in the Premier League yet, but this squad has the quality to score and play the football we usually play,” said the Dutch international.
“We can get a good result there.
“It’s going to be a difficult end of the season for us, and we have Norwich this Saturday.
“Norwich is a difficult team to play against. It will be a back and forth game.
“But they have a little more pressure on them than we do right now.
“It has been a great season so far, but it’s not over yet – we have seven games left.
“We have to keep the confidence up.
“We have the players who can play ball and we can get the results we are after.”
At the club’s weekly press conference, de Guzman was probed on his future.
The midfielder, who has scored eight goals in 38 appearances this season for the Swans, is currently on loan at the Liberty for the rest of the season from Villarreal.
He added: “I’ve had a warm welcome from everyone at the club and I’ve made it clear many times that I’m enjoying here.
“Playing week-in, week-out and winning the Capital One Cup was great for me, and getting my first international caps was a real bonus.
“But I’ve not heard anything yet – it’s between the clubs.”
