Cape Town - Swansea City manager Paul Clement remains determined to fight for his job and lift the Swans out of the Premier League relegation zone, after losing to Everton on Monday.

Clement's side were beaten 3-1 at Goodison Park despite taking the lead through Leroy Fer in the 35th minute. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Wayne Rooney all found the back of the visitors' net to keep Swansea at the bottom of the standings.

City have won only once in their last 10 games, against West Bromwich Albion at home, and lost eight. During the poor run they fell from 13th in the standings to rock bottom. The pressure has continued to build on Clement due to the disappointing results, but he is prepared to fight until the bitter end.

“It’s a difficult job being a manager of any team and at any level. You want to win, you want to play well, every game," the Englishman was quoted as saying by The Guardian. 

"It’s certainly not something I’ve been used to in my career. Even here last year, we were winning more games and playing better. As an assistant I was losing one in 10 and winning nine. It’s the opposite now. 

"It’s not a very nice experience, I’m learning a lot from it, learning a lot about myself, and I will keep fighting. I will keep working hard. I worked very hard to get to this position and I’m not going to give up on it. I will keep going.”
