Swansea must show determination to halt slump, says Clement

Despite the abundance of midfield options, Swansea's lack of creativity was laid bare once again as they slumped to a fourth loss from five home league games this season.

Although Mesa cost £11m from Las Palmas, neither he nor Clucas were included in the team for Saturday's defeat at home against Leicester.

Speaking to Estadio Deportivo, Mesa said: "I have not started very well in this new adventure, that is the reality".

"Right now I do not think much about my future and it is not in my mind to return (to Spain)".

"I'm disappointed with the second goal also, because I wouldn't say Lingard is well known for getting into the box and heading it, and our two centre-halves are in there, so we have to do better there".

"You'd be asking a player who's not a natural left-back or you go down into the next level at your club".

PAUL CLEMENT has declared Roque Mesa does have a long-term Swansea future after confirming the Spaniard will start tonight's Carabao Cup tie against Manchester United. He has a long term contract and we want him here but the opportunities are there and he and others have to take them.

"Some people have questioned why he is not playing, but it was not because of the mistake against Watford", Clement said.

"He has been training hard and he deserves a chance in the team". If you've come off the back end of a season where you've hardly played, pre-season a similar situation, a lot of uncertainty about what he's going to do, he comes in and straight into Premier League high intensity football.

"It is very different, but he is making gradual adjustments to his game and I am sure we are going to see some of those things".
