Swansea City manager Bob Bradley rejects suggestions that the club are in "crisis" as they sit second from bottom in the Premier League table.

Swansea City manager Bob Bradley has rejected suggestions that the club are in "crisis".

The Welsh outfit are currently second from bottom in the Premier League table after picking up just five points from 11 games.

Bradley's men are only above Sunderland in the standings because they have a slightly better goal difference than their North-East opponents.

Since the American coach was hired as Francesco Guidolin's appointment at the start of October, the team have not won a league fixture having lost three and drawn one.

While on international duty with South Korea last week, Ki Sung-Yueng told reporters that he will work with his teammates to "overcome this crisis".

Bradley, though, does not see Swansea's situation quite as dire. He said in Thursday's press conference: "It is 11 [league] games this season - for me, four. We certainly understand that we are in an important stretch.

"We need results and a confidence boost, so we are not glossing over anything that is for sure, but I would not say crisis. I just think we have to be strong. We have got to be better in many ways.

"I challenge [the players] to understand that you don't get out of these tough spots in football if you don't have enough real guys. My job is to look them in the eye every day and figure out the right message and right training and how we are going to fight our way out of that situation."

The Swans will face Everton in their next league game this Saturday.
