Swansea City manager Paul Clement has backed striker Wilfried Bony to ‘start scoring goals’ for the club.
The ex-Vitesse striker has battled with fitness so far this term, thus, making just seven appearances in all competitions for the Liberty Stadium outfit.
However, the Swans gaffer believes that Bony - who played all 90 minutes against Bournemouth last weekend - will discover his touch in front of goal sooner rather than later.
“He did really well. He led the line well and gave the team a real focal point,” Clement told club website.
“He scored what in my opinion was a good goal and if he continues to play like that, he will soon start scoring goals.
“I think Wilfried was a leader and a very important player when he was here previously,” he added.
“Since he came back, he has had to focus a lot on getting himself fit because he has picked up a couple of injuries.
“Hopefully now he is in a better place. He has got a really good 90 minutes under his belt and that will give him confidence.
“Let’s see if he can cope with two more games this week. I hope he can and I think he will.”
Bony will be aiming to open his goal account when Swansea trades tackles with Victor Moses’ Chelsea in Wednesday’s English Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge.
