Jordan Ayew: This is why I quit Aston Villa

"The two teams are level on points and we will not play each other again this season", he told swanseacity.net. "Maybe now, it is too much". The Foxes' collective drop in performance, an inevitability for a club so modest, and ramped-up opponents has slammed shut the narrow gap in drive and edge by which Leicester claimed so many Premier League points past year.

"I used to follow the results, it was positive and we just need to continue this and there will be no problem to stay in the Premier League".

"We said before the game that at the very least, we would have to match them in that area, and I thought the players showed they were up for the challenge today".

However, in a bid to push through a move to Swansea, Ayew admitted that he turned down the opportunity to return to France, as he instead had his sights set on a return to the Premier League.

"Jamie works hard for the team, but this season we have scored very few goals and scoring three goals in one match (against Derby County in the FA Cup on Wednesday) was awesome and I hope this is good for the future". "I have a very good relationship with him". However there was no sign of that in the Premier League meeting with Swansea where the champions found themselves 2-0 down at half-time.

A four-time runner-up in the Copa, Celta was trying to return to the final for the first time since 2001. However, Alaves can take inspiration from a shock 2-1 win at the Camp Nou back in September in La Liga.

Swansea doubled their lead on the stroke of halftime as Gylfi Sigurddson played in Marten Olsson, who rifled the ball home at Kasper Schmeichel's near post.

"But now I'm coming to a team where I feel the confidence from the club, the coach and the players".

"Even though we didn't get anything from our game last week", the 44-year-old stated.

His predecessor Bob Bradley lasted only 85 days in the job, losing seven of his 11 games in charge and conceding 29 goals in the process. Leicester need drastic improvement all over the pitch, and their former striker Alan Smith summed up the seriousness of the situation after the game. There's a real belief about the team that can't be ignored; we'll score more than our opponents and that's that.
