Swansea City defender Ben Davies admits that his side must adapt to their upcoming hectic schedule if they are to consolidate their position in the Premier League.

Swansea City defender Ben Davies is hopeful that the club can adapt to competing in Europe this season.

The Swans have qualified for the Europa League group stages, ensuring that they are guaranteed an extra six matches before Christmas, and Davies has acknowledged that he and his teammates need to adapt to the hectic schedule if they are to continue to improve this season.

The 20-year-old told the South Wales Evening Post: "Having all these big games is going to be something that we have to get used to.

"But we've got the quality in the squad to adapt to the games coming up.

"Hopefully we can thrive on it. We've got a lot of good players in this team and the way the squad is now, we might be able to rotate in games when players become tired."

Swansea face a run of three matches in six days, with a trip to Valencia coming either side of domestic clashes with Liverpool and Crystal Palace.
