Swansea City: 'Owners and players back me' - boss Paul Clement

Swansea have won just two games all season and scored a total of eight goals in the Premier League.

However, Clement has insisted that he has the full support of his players, and has backed his first-team squad to quickly get another victory on the board.

"I would say the majority are with the team at the moment".

When asked if he has credit in the bank after last season, Clement said: "I am not sure it is credit in the bank, people know what I am capable of".

'There's no divisions, it's a cohesive dressing room, ' the manager told a news conference on Thursday.

"Sometimes that's hard to get back, but I've no feeling like that".

"Internally everyone is working in the same direction", Clement said. If there's any pressure, talk of I'm not going to be here, it's from external sources, it's not from within.

"I had a positive conversation with Steve on the phone when we were talking about past games, future games and the (transfer) window".

"We are working in a focused manner".

Once he took over in January, Clement took an impressive 29 points from 19 games in order for Swansea to finish above Hull City and avoid relegation.

The Swans terrible run of form has resulted in Clement's position seemingly coming under pressure, the former Chelsea and Bayern Munich assistant failing to build upon his successful turn around of the team's 2016/17 season.

A run of one point from seven games has left Swansea sitting at the bottom of the league table, and doubts have inevitably been raised over whether Clement will be able to keep his job at the Liberty Stadium.

"I don't fear (losing to West Brom), not as my position as head coach". We've just got to find that little ingredient to get us a win.

"It was a big effort last season, but we managed to do it". We need a minimum of 12 at halfway, if we have less it will be very hard'.
