Swansea have been struggling in the Premier League this season, and that can be proven by the fact that Swansea only won two games out of 17 in this season, before Italian coach Francesco Guidolin was brought into manage the club.

So far, Swansea have earned themselves four points out of a possible six under Guidolin, and seven out of a possible nine if you were to count the Watford win.

The Italian has gained plaudits from many pundits, as well as Swansea City fans for the recent revival of form, which has meant that Swansea have climbed up to 16th in the table, five points away from the bottom three.

One player to thank for this is Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has scored four goals in his last five games, including a goal in each of his last two games. Gylfi had a great opportunity to win the game for Swansea on Tuesday at The Hawthorns, but a cruel Rondon strike in added time meant that the spoils were shared.

Sigurdsson told the Swansea City website:

We might have [not have] won, but I definitely think we are seeing the old Swansea again.

We are playing much better than we were. Things weren’t good [earlier this season].

We weren’t playing well and keeping the ball like we used to – that’s hopefully changing now. It feels a bit like a defeat, to lead coming into the last few minutes.

We played really well, until the last few minutes. But if you’d have offered us seven points from our last three games, we’d have taken that.

Swansea now face Crystal Palace and Southampton in the Premier League, with an aim of getting maximum points.

Swansea fans, can Swansea win those games and avoid the drop? Have your say, tweet us @ReadSwansea!
