Ashley Williams reveals what would 'please' him this season at Swansea

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams wants a highest ever Premier League finish from his team.

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams has told the South Wales Evening Post what would be ‘pleasing’ for him this season.

Williams has detailed in the paper what he wants and what he believes is possible from the Swans over the rest of the season.

“We want the best season we have had in the Premier League — the highest finish and the most points,” said the defender.

“That would be pleasing, and we want to stay in the top group which is important.”

Swansea are well placed in the Premier League for an assault on the top six over the rest of the season.

The side were solid in the opening weeks of the season but have since fallen off the pace, but they showed a battling spirit in their win away at Southampton.

Europa League football would be a great achievement from the Swans if they can pull it off and the chance to compete in Europe is definitely something that would please Swansea’s captain.

How Swansea get there is being consistent from this point forward.

Garry Monk needs to find a way of boxing up the qualities the team showed in the game against the Saints and using them in his side in important games at home and away for the rest of the campaign.

Williams also has a big role to play as the team’s captain. He has a vision of where he wants the club to be in May and he has a partial responsibility to demand the best from his teammates to help the team get there.
