But most of Swansea's games were played under the more cautious Paul Clement and there are signs of a shift since Carvalhal took charge, with both teams scoring in four of his six league matches even if only two have gone over 2.5 goals.

Carvalhal is an engaging character whose descriptions of his January transfer targets - "I will look to the lobsters and sea bass, but if not we must buy sardines" - or likening beating Liverpool to "stopping a Formula 1 vehicle in London traffic" have caused enormous reactions on social media.

"When you feel some tension, he will tell one of his stories that makes us laugh".

"The team have put together a great run in the last few weeks and I hope to help build on that with the games we have in the coming weeks".

"When we arrived we changed things, changed the dynamic, some rules also", he said.

Security forces also uncovered and destroyed six farms used to grow banned narcotics, the statement said. Last year, militants attacked a Sufi mosque in the region, killing 311 worshipers.

Ki Sung-Yueng scored nine minutes from time to see off Burnley as the Swans, who were five points adrift of safety when Carvalhal was appointed in December, moved up to 15th in the Premier League.

Dyche's side still don't win enough away games because they are low scoring, but you can nearly guarantee their defending will be better than Arsenal's slipshod efforts in Swansea's last home league game.

"The Arsenal and Liverpool games were the big turning points for us and now we don't think as if we are going to lose games", Ki said.

"The winning mentality is getting better now".

"The boys dug in well and got the three points and that sets us in good stead for the rest of the season".

The Russian Emergencies Ministry said it had sent crews to the crash site, which is reported to be near the village of Argunovo . It was first operated by Rossiya Airlines, including on worldwide routes, and then was leased to Saratov Airlines.

"If we keep this level until the end of the season then we will stay up".

Burnley remain in seventh place but are now on the longest winless streak in the Premier League.

But the seventh-place Clarets were left to reflect on another disappointing afternoon, with the longest winless run in the top flight stretching to 10 games. It was a hard game, we knew it would be. Last week was the first time we smelled the fresh air.

"That would be a good target for us".
