Carvalhal happy but cautious after stunning Swansea win

  • Jordan Ayew inspires Swansea City to victory over Watford

The 26-year-old increased his tally to three goals in 21 league games as newly appointed Carlos Carvalhal registered his first win at the helm.

And while Silva declined to refer to Andre Gray by name, it was clear it was the record signing's miss seconds before Jordan Ayew's equaliser which irked him the most about how the Hornets had failed to put the game beyond Swansea, and add to Andre Carrillo's 11th-minute opener.

Neither side seized control of the match in a disjointed second half and, as the nervous hosts retreated with five minutes left, Swans substitute Oli McBurnie nodded down for Ayew to convert from close range before substitute Luciano Narsingh converted a rebound to spark ecstatic celebrations in the dugout and the away end.

The Portuguese told the club's official website: "In this moment, maybe if you ask 100 people who follow football, they will say Swansea are going to get relegate". We are still not in a good position, but the confidence is higher and belief is higher. We believe we can stay [in the Premier League] but it will be tough, very tough work. The result lifted Swansea off the bottom of the table and provided former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carvalhal with a dream start to his tenure in South Wales.
