Ghana striker Jordan Ayew wins Swansea City Player of the month award

Carvalhal then jokingly accused one reporter of having Pasteis de Nata left around his mouth

Andre Ayew was reunited with brother Jordan at the end of the transfer window, five years since the attacking duo parted ways following a spell playing together at Marseille.

However, he recovered from the problem this week and is now in contention to be in the starting line up after being called up by the manager.

Carvalhal has enjoyed an impressive start to life in Wales, lifting them out of the relegation zone with eleven points in six games as the Liberty Stadium becomes somewhat of a fortress for the hosts.

That has been particularly evident at home, where their results since the Tottenham defeat have been 2-1 v Wolves in the FA Cup, league wins over Liverpool (1-0) and Arsenal (3-1) and the 8-1 against Notts County. They have failed to win on the road for three months.

"They will push us back down if we do not keep going, and we have to make sure that does not happen".

Sean Dyche admitted that he is looking forward to a break from action next weekend as he continues to juggle with a lengthy injury list that contains no less than eight first-team players.

One piece of good news is that Stephen Ward could be ready to challenge Charlie Taylor for the left-back slot, while Matt Lowton will continue at right-back if Phil Bardsley is not fit after missing the second half against City.

Carlos Carvalhal has masterminded three victories in their last four matches, in stark contrast with Burnley, who remain in seventh spot despite their 10th match without a win. "I am very happy because that created a big impact".

Equally, however, Burnley have won only two away games out of nine when the opposition has scored and Swansea have proved hard to stop under Carvalhal.

It changed after the interval when visitors Burnley threatened to score with a stinging half-volley from winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson but he was denied with a stunning fingertip save by Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
