Carvalhal believes Swansea are 'not in intensive care' after Arsenal win

Never one to shy away from a quirky analogy, Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal feels as though his side are 'out of intensive care' after they defeated Arsenal 3-1 at Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night.

The win is their second consecutive over a top-six club after having beat Liverpool last week, and it has now lifted them out of the relegation zone, which seemed impossible only a month ago.

"We are very happy," an ecstatic Carvalhal told Sky Sports after the game.

"To win against Arsenal after beating Liverpool...I'm more than proud of my players.

"We created more chances than them. My players did fantastic work. I told them we are ready to do something different. I said after Watford we are not dead, we are breathing.

"We have a chance (of staying up). We are not in intensive care. We are not far away from the doctor saying we can go home."
