Swansea man sends out bold warning to North London rivals

Modou Barrow is confident that Francesco Guidolin's side can beat Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Swansea City forward Modou Barrow has claimed that his side can upset the odds and pull off back-to-back shock away victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal to climb clear of the bottom three, according to quotes in the South Wales Evening Post.

The Swans had gone some way to alleviating their relegation concerns with a four-game unbeaten run before a 1-0 home defeat to Southampton last weekend left them just three points clear of danger.

However, Barrow, who is enjoying something of a breakthrough season at the Liberty Stadium, has been encouraged by the club's recent form and believes that the Welsh club can take a maximum six-point haul from consecutive trips to North London.

He said, as quoted in the paper: "They are good sides, but Sunderland beat Manchester United last weekend, so that shows you every game in the Premier League is a tough game.

"For me, we always have a chance because in the squad we have good players. We have to just try to forget about the last game against Southampton and come back stronger.

"There is a big confidence because we have big players in this squad and we know that sometimes you go through these things and we will come back stronger."

Barrow has made 16 appearances in all competitions for Swansea this season after returning from a loan spell at Blackburn Rovers, but the Gambian has only started four Premier League matches in his Swans career.

Swansea, who sacked former captain Garry Monk as manager in December, are currently down in 16th in the league table, whilst Spurs and Arsenal are joint second.
