Swansea City players behind Clement - Abraham

After a woeful start to the season, the Swans are yet to get it right and their handler could get a fall for it
Swansea City players ‘are definitely right behind’ Paul Clement, says Tammy Abraham.

A 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion earlier this month represents the only victory the Swans have managed in their past 11 encounters. The bottom-placed side drew once and lost the remaining nine games.

And ahead of their next English Premier League fixture against a resurgent Crystal Palace, there are speculations Clement could be shown the exit if the situation does not get better.

However, the striker - yet to score since October 14 [against Huddersfield Town] - said the team has offered their backing to their under-fire manager.

"We know Saturday is a massive game for us we just have to stay positive and get a result there," Abraham told BBC Sport.

"We're definitely right behind the gaffer.

"He's a great manager and did the job last year so I believe we can do it this year we just need the right performance and the right result really for us to really have that boost and kick on.

"Different teams and different players need something different," he continued.

"For us, I think we've got everything we need, we've got the tools it's just about the players. We just have to give a performance for him and do as much as we can for him."

On whether a loss against Roy Hodgson’s side could get Clement sacked, Abraham said: "It's hard to think of it like that, but we know we have to get a result and we have to give a performance as well."
