New Swansea head coach Francesco Guidolin believes six points in the first week of his arrival has given him plenty of hope they can escape relegation this season.

The Italian was in the stands for Monday’s victory over Watford but played his part to the full on the touchline in the 2-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park, registering the club’s first back-to-back wins of the season.

Swansea are now four points clear of the bottom three and Guidolin is looking upwards.

“Six points in two matches is very important for us because the table was not good,” he said.

“Now it is not very good. I hope to have the possibility to go up in the table.

“In this moment I am very happy. This is the first match in Premier League for me.

“I dreamed of working in Premier League but I didn’t dream of winning the first match.

“I must understand what happens in this day because I am surprised. It is new for me.”
