. . . Korean ace confident Swans' style will end recent run of defeats


Ki Sung-Yueng believes the Swans must stick to one rule if they are to end their recent run of defeats, insisting: “Don’t change a thing.”
Consecutive losses to West Brom, Arsenal and Spurs mean Michael Laudrup’s side are without a point since the victory over Newcastle United on March 2.
Not since September have the Swans encountered such a run, but Ki feels the Swans can get back to winning ways on Saturday at Norwich if they stick to the gameplan which has served them so well throughout the season.
“I think a lot is made out of one side losing a few games in a row, but in this league it can happen to any team,” said the Korean star.
“But when I look back at the games against West Brom, Arsenal and Spurs, I don’t think we played badly in them.
“We are frustrated we have not picked up a point in them games, but we are playing in a way which has got us to the top half of the Premier League and the club’s first major trophy.
“So, considering those factors, I think we don’t need to change a thing for the games ahead.
“I also think we can learn from earlier in the season when we lost three in a row. We didn’t panic then, we just kept doing our thing and the results quickly came.”
The Swans head to Norwich on Saturday looking to take their first points off the Canaries since both clubs won promotion to the Barclays Premier League.
Last season, Norwich won 3-1 at Carrow Road before a 3-2 victory at the Liberty.
Chris Hughton’s side were again victorious in SA1 this term, edging a seven-goal thriller in December.
But Ki is confident the Swans can change their fortunes against the Canaries this weekend.
“They are a tough side to play against and are like a typical British team,” added Ki.
“It’s going to be very difficult to get the points up there, but we are focused and determined to end this run without points.
“And I think we can do that on Saturday. We want to finish strongly, and a result at Norwich will put us in a strong position to do that.”
