Taylor: Swansea concentrating on survival rather than Europe

Neil Taylor insists Swansea are still intent on securing their Premier League status rather than looking up at possible Europa League qualification. The South Wales club face Everton at the weekend eighth in the Premiership but Taylor insists that securing mathematical survival remains the number one priority.

The 23-year-old said: "There has not been any talk of Europe, there honestly hasn't. The number one all season, even around January and February when people said we would be okay, has been about staying up.

"That's the main objective. Maybe next year, we can set ourselves a little higher target. This season we just have to stay in the Premier League.

The 23 year old said: "I saw the table the other day and from the turn of the year, we are actually third. That's something that shows progression and that's all we ever wanted. We know as a group that we are working hard every day and striving hard to do better.

"We are coming up to a time in the season when we are going to be playing the QPRs, the Blackburns and I think they are going to be really hard games because they are fighting for survival. It will be even tougher than playing them around December time.

"We need to remember where we are and what type of football club we are. We just want to finish as high as we can and if we could finish inside the top 10 it would be an unbelievable achievement."
