Burnley's only away defeats came when they didn't manage to score and it is debatable whether Swansea are up to the job of shutting them out, having kept only one clean sheet in their six league games under Carvalhal.

Ayew scored 12 goals in 35 appearances during his first stint with the Swans.

After gaining just 13 points from their opening 20 games, the Swans have won four of their last seven under Carvalhal and look likely to complete an unlikely escape. The former Sheffield Wednesday manager has Swansea playing the football fans want to see yet again and today they moved out of the relegation zone and into 15th place in the Premier League.

Ki Sung-Yueng of Swansea City celebrates after scoring his sides first goal.

"We were last when I arrived, five points from safety I think", Carvalhal said. We saw no fishes. We put all the meat in the barbecue, all the meat inside the grill, because we wish a lot to win the game.

"Now, in this moment, we have started swimming and we can now go to the coast".

Burnley have now gone 10 games without a victory - the longest winless run in the Premier League.

Swansea enjoyed more than two-thirds of possession but both teams struggled to create clear-cut opportunities in the first half.

"The margins are tight and you have to find a way of getting on the right side of it", Burnley boss Sean Dyche said.

Carvalhal is an engaging character whose descriptions of his January transfer targets - "I will look to the lobsters and sea bass, but if not we must buy sardines" - or likening beating Liverpool to "stopping a Formula 1 auto in London traffic" have caused enormous reactions on social media.

"We are in every game and that's pleasing, but we have to correct the run we are on, quite obviously, and we do need some of those players back fit".
