Clement hit by Dyer injury blow

13 February 2017 12:00:03 EST

Paul Clement was thrilled with Swansea City's 2-0 win against Leicester City but it came at cost as he has lost Nathan Dyer for the rest of the season.

Dyer, who spent last season on loan at the King Power Stadium, had to be replaced by Wayne Routledge after only seven minutes on Sunday after picking up an Achilles problem.

A scan on Monday afternoon has since revealed a rupture of the Achilles tendon in his left ankle which means he will play no further part in the Swans' fight for Premier League survival.

The injury soured an otherwise perfect day for the Swans as they made it four Premier League victories in six games since Clement was appointed as manager.

First-half goals from Alfie Mawson and Martin Olsson secured the three points that lifted the Swans up to 15th in the table, four points clear of the relegation places.

"It was a very pleasing afternoon. I thought we really deserved the victory," said former Derby County boss Clement afterwards.

"We scored two really good goals and the one just before half-time gave us a lot of confidence. I was really pleased with the way we then saw the game out in the second half to get a positive result."

Swansea can be backed at 13/8 not to be relegated this season while they are 12/1 to draw their next league match at Chelsea on 25th February 1-1.
