Taylor wants Swansea to build on momentum of draw at Arsenal

Swansea defender Neil Taylor believes their 2-2 draw at Arsenal can give them the momentum they need to secure their Premier League status. "It just shows us we have got a bit of character and a bit of fight, and now we have got an extra point on the board which is encouraging," said Taylor.

"We are playing in the Premier League, so every game is pressure.

"There are so many clubs that are picking up points here and there and it is not over by a long shot.

"I think both ends of the table will go right to the end of the end."

Swansea sit five points above the relegation zone and play fellow strugglers Norwich on Saturday.

"This league is like that. Weeks can go past and you think 'God, we have missed two or three games there where we haven't picked up anything', which is annoying," the 25 year old said.

"However, this does not change anything for us about Saturday now because it is still a must-win game.

"It is about digging in and make sure we stay in this league because we are in and amongst it (survival battle) now and we have to make sure we do the job."
