Paul Clement says he still has the full backing of his squad despite a disagreement in the dressing room last weekend

Swansea City manager Paul Clement has denied divisions in the dressing room after a run of disappointing results, saying the team are working together to try to climb out of the Premier League relegation zone.

"I've experienced dressing rooms that have grown apart from their manager and that can be hard to get back".

Swansea have won just two games all season and scored a total of eight goals in the Premier League.

"I've experienced dressing rooms that have grown apart from their manager and sometimes that's hard to get back". If there's any pressure, talk of I'm not going to be here, it's from external sources, it's not from within.

"I've had positive conversations with the owners and the communication lines are open".

"We are working in a focused manner".

"I was disappointed at the end of the Stoke game and that is the reason I looked so frustrated", Clement said.

However Clement has faith that he can turn their form around, and pointed at last season when he managed to keep the club in the league.

"But I do not have that feeling at all".

When Clement was appointed head coach in January, Swansea found themselves bottom of the table but took 29 points from the final 19 games to avoid dropping into the Championship.

The Swans terrible run of form has resulted in Clement's position seemingly coming under pressure, the former Chelsea and Bayern Munich assistant failing to build upon his successful turn around of the team's 2016/17 season.

Swansea City manager Paul Clement believes he is the man to turn the club's season around, as the Welsh side now sit bottom of the table on nine points.

"I don't fear (losing to West Brom), not as my position as head coach".

"We have got six games to go through December to get some valuable points on the board." . We need a minimum of 12 at halfway, if we have less it will be very hard'.
