"It will an interesting few weeks ahead," Tremmel told the club's official website. "We have Liverpool on Wednesday [in the Capital One Cup] and Chelsea next Saturday. That's why I came here to Swansea.
"Obviously, Michel played very well last season, as did the whole team. You don't get many chances but I was training hard and I wanted to prove to the manager that I can come in and play. Now I have a chance, because of an injury, but hopefully I can get a few games now."
Tremmel moved to the Liberty Stadium last year.
