Swansea boss Cooper under no pressure to play Chelsea pair Guehi, Gallagher

Swansea City boss Steve Cooper says there's no demands to play his loan players.

Swansea signed Chelsea's Marc Guehi and Connor Gallagher and Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster on loan in January.

"We have a few loan players here, that would not be right for the football club to do that," said the Swans boss.

Midfielder Gallagher has made six appearances while Guehi, who is set to stay at Swansea beyond this summer, has featured in the five winless games in Swansea's defence. with his form coming under particular scrutiny.

"With the young players, it is up and down," Cooper added. "They can have a really good game and make a mistake that can cost a goal or miss a chance, and that can be the narrative.

"But my aim is to keep working day in day out with the players and give them the best programme we can possible with the idea of continuing to improve while performing well in games so we can win games. That won't change."
