Arnautovic blunder proves valuable to Swansea

Paul Clement insists his Swansea players have the stomach for their Premier League relegation fight. If the gap had gone to five points with four to play the task would have been very hard.

"Clearly that wasn't our game plan, we wanted to affect them in terms of their confidence, they were not in great shape coming into this game and there was a little anxiety before the game".

Marko Arnautovic stepped up from the spot but inexplicably struck his penalty high into the stands behind Fabianski's goal.

The win wasn't enough for them to climb out of the bottom three - 10 man Hull beating Watford 2-0 kept the Tigers two points ahead - but at least keeps them in the hunt to escape.

"We've been awful on the road but our home form puts us in a position where it's still in our hands and while that's the case, we've got massive belief in the manager (Marco Silva)", he said.

"When you lose 3-1 and still get the applause they gave us and saw the spirit they showed in turning up, that's brilliant but now we need them at home". We made a sloppy start, deserved to go behind and then went on to dominate for long periods.

But only now we are more familiar with Marco Silva's incredible home record, and his ability to organise a team to play above their station, has he started to receive the overdue credit he deserves.

In another semi-final today, another Indian badminton star, Kidambi Srikanth , will clash with Indonesia's Anthony Ginting. World No. 26 Ginting pounced on Srikanth's tentative approach at the beginning of the match and took a 9-4 lead.

Swansea doubled their lead within 60 seconds when Carroll's shot deflected off the unfortunate Allen and over the helpless Butland.

"I thought we needed three wins and a draw". At that stage it was very hard for us to get anything out of the game.

"We have to bounce back from that result now and get ready for a big home game against Watford".

"Results are what matter now, we're not too anxious about performances along as the points go in the bag".

Speaking on BBC's Match of the Day, former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard singled him out following another lacklustre display from relegation-threatened Swansea that extended their winless run to six games.

"Sometimes we are not the best in the first half".
