Swansea City went nine points in front of the relegation zone with a relieving win against a struggling Norwich City on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium.

It was a tight first half with both teams showing why they’re occupying the lower places in the Premier League table. However, in the second half, Alan Curtis motivated the Swans and Gylfi Sigurdsson got the opener in the 61st minute.

Substitute – and former Norwich player – Leroy Fer did very well when coming on for Leon Britton and assisted the Icelander with the eventual winning goal.

A last gasp effort from Alex Neil’s side was worrying, but the Canaries couldn’t conjure up a late equaliser as they remain in a very worrying position, 18th in the table.

The three points puts Swansea on 33 points, closer to Southampton who are in 8th place, than the dreaded relegation zone.
