Ashley Williams says a failure to beat Norwich City tomorrow will be a case of 'back to square one' for Swansea after their shock midweek win at Arsenal.

Williams scored the winner at The Emirates to give the Swans some breathing space in the relegation battle.

The Canaries head to the Liberty Stadium this weekend desperate for three points, but Williams hopes the hosts will be buoyed by Wednesday's win.

'If we don't win that, we don't back up the win today, then we're back to square one,' said the Swansea captain.

'Everyone was looking at the next three games, but after winning here we have to try and build on it and go into the Norwich game.

'It should give us the confidence to know we can beat a team that's going for the title so we can beat anyone.

'It's a massive win and we seem to enjoy coming here, for whatever reason.'

Swansea's next three matches are all against teams in the bottom six – Norwich's visit is followed by a trip to Bournemouth and a home game against bottom club Aston Villa.

Williams acknowledges their importance, but believes there is a lot of football to be played before the end of the season.

'It's just not the next three games,' he added.

'There are five or six after that, that we can get points from - from now until the end of the season we need to get momentum.'
