Jonjo Shelvey has claimed that Swansea City can maintain their stunning early-season form for the rest of the campaign and qualify for the Champions League.
"I feel we can compete with the big clubs now, I feel we're sort of on a par with them," the England international told Wales Online. "We can go anywhere or have any team coming here and get a result against them.
"I feel that outside the top four or five, we're in that next bracket so it's up to us to prove that we can push for the top four. And I don't see any reason why this club can't play Champions League football with the manager that we've got and the work ethic that he instils during the week.
"If we keep winning our home games and keep pushing on and keep flying I think we've got a great chance of finishing in the top four. I think this club is set-up to play in Europe. You've seen what we did to Chelsea. You could say 'they only had 10 men' but even with 11 I thought we gave a great account of ourselves. And we also did that against a great Manchester United side."
The Swans return to action on Saturday with a trip to Watford.
