Swansea don't need miracle to escape drop, says new boss Carvalhal

Stoke City’s Ramadan Sobhi and Chelsea’s Victor Moses battle for the ball at Stamford Bridge

Dec 30 (Reuters) - Late goals by Jordan Ayew and Luciano Narsingh gave Swansea a 2-1 Premier League win at Watford and handed visiting coach Carlos Carvalhal a winning debut in England's top flight on Saturday. "It will still be very, very hard".

To convince Swansea to keep him beyond this season, Carvalhal - who joins compatriots Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and Watford's Marco Silva in managing a Premier League club - might have to save his new club from relegation. Maybe some people will say we need a miracle.

"But the confidence is higher now and the belief is higher".

"Me, my players, the chairman and fans do not belong to this 100".

Liberia declares George Weah president-elect
Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated George Weah on his election as Liberia's next president. He has been senator for Montserrado County in Liberia after being elected in 2014.

Molla Wague had a goal harshly ruled out for a soft shove on Tammy Abraham early in the second half, while substitute Andre Gray should have done better when he fired straight at Lukasz Fabianski from a one-on-one scenario shortly before Ayew's leveller.

The drama had not finished there as with a minute remaining Heurelho Gomes failed to hold a low drive from another substitute, Nathan Dyer.

"Before the game I said if you ask 100 people, 100 will say we will be relegated". We believe. It will be very tough until the end.

"I also hadn't seen it until now but it looks like there was a small offside for their first goal. But I don't want to make excuses, we should have killed the match".
