Carlos Carvalhal says relieving the stress of his Swansea players has been key but jokes he 'does not work in the circus'
Ayew's contribution to the Swans attack has not gone unnoticed as he weighed in with two goals. Before Christmas, the South Wales club found themselves tipped as the Premier League's relegation favorites come May.
Swansea hope to extend their remarkable recovery against Sean Dyche'sBurnley, who remain seventh in the Premier League despite a dramatic downturn in form. Coming off the back of an empathic 8-1 win against Notts County in their FA Cup replay, Swansea are now unbeaten in their last 10 matches in all competitions.
It took until the 81st minute for the Swans to get their goal, but they were good value for the win against a very solid Burnley side. Now sat in 17th position, a win on Saturday afternoon could see Carvalhal's side jump as high as 13th.
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.
Dyche's side still don't win enough away games because they are low scoring, but you can nearly guarantee their defending will be better than Arsenal's slipshod efforts in Swansea's last home league game.
Burnley are without a Premier League win in nine games (D5 L4), the longest current winless run in the division.
