  • Watford news Manager Marco Silva says Hornets do not want to sell any players in the January transfer window

Carlos Carvalhal was delighted after guiding Swansea City to a dramatic victory in his first game in charge, but admitted that they are not in "paradise" quite yet.

Jordan fetched the equaliser four minutes to full-time before Luciano Narsingh netted the victor in stopped time. The win lifted them off the bottom of the table to 19th, two points from safety.

"I said to the players before the match that if you ask 100 people who understand football, 100 people would say Swansea will be relegated", he said. "In this moment, in 100, 98 will say we will be relegated", said Carvalhal. It is still a small percentage.

"Me, my players, the chairman and fans do not belong to this 100".

Having fallen behind as early as the 11th minute when Andre Carrillo put The Hornets in the lead, the Swans threw in a late fight to turn the final score 2-1 in their favour. "It will be very tough and we have just taken the first step, but we believe".

In the 89th minute, Heurelho Gomes saved a powerful effort from Nathan Dyer but could only push it into the path of another Swansea substitute, Luciano Narsingh, who finished well to spark ecstatic celebrations in the dugout and the away end.

The hosts appeared to be cruising to victory after Andre Carrillo's opening goal, but they failed to capitalise on their comfortable position and, after 86 minutes, allowed Jordan Ayew to equalise. Sometimes it wasn't what we want, but it's impossible after two sessions.

"We didn't play the first 45 minutes as we wish because we had some problems to control".

But the Portuguese warned that Swansea still have a long way to go, starting with tomorrow's home game against Tottenham Hotspur. But at Watford we worked very hard and got our rewards.
