Dede Ayew i confident Swansea will not be relegated Dede Ayew i confident Swansea will not be relegated

Andre Ayew says he is "100%" confident that his English Premier League side Swansea City will avoid relegation.

Swansea lost 1-0 to Chelsea on Saturday whilst relegation rivals Southampton beat Bournemouth to close the gap on Carlos Carvalhal's team to one point.

However Ayew, who rejoined Swansea in January, said he is sure they have the quality to stay in the Premier League.

"We have to stay positive and I'm 100% confident we will stay up and we have that quality," said Ayew.

"If we want to stay in the Premier League we have to be strong and be ready for any challenge.

"We are working well, training hard and the lads are showing a lot of mental strength when the going is difficult.

"I have a lot of confidence in the guys and they are a real tough bunch, we are going to the end together as a unit and as a family and we are fighting for our lives."

Swansea still have to play the two teams directly below them in Southampton and Stoke at home, but first they travel to Bournemouth.
