The Swansea City attacker looks on the bright side following another disappointment for the club on Saturday

Swansea City may have failed to claim three points in five successive Premier League games but striker Jordan Ayew reckons their output in Saturday's goalless draw with Bournemouth passes for their best so far this season.

It was another disappointing result for the Swans, as Paul Clement's outfit settled for a 0-0 stalemate with the Cherries at the Liberty Stadium.

"We feel we should have three points, but at least we have one and we didn’t lose the game,” Ayew said, as reported by his club's official website.

“We tried our best to win but when things are not going your way, it sometimes doesn’t happen.

“But we played some good football and that is something we can build on.

“I think it was our best performance of the season – the gaffer said that. It’s something to build on and hopefully we can take into in the next games.

“We have set the standard now. We have to stay at this level and not drop below it.”

Second from bottom on the table, Swansea's fortunes may just get worse on Wednesday as they are set to face defending champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

“We are in a difficult moment, but we created chances,” Ayew added.

“That’s a positive. The referee didn’t help us but the most important thing is that we performed better.

“We have not been good for a few games but we have taken a step forward in this game.”

Ayew has made 13 league appearances - all starts - and netted once so far this campaign.
