Alex Neil does not need to tell his Norwich City players how big Swansea City's upcoming Premier League visit is to Carrow Road.

Both clubs have won only one top flight game in their last seven, ahead of this weekend's tussle, with the Canaries looking to improve their own fortunes on home soil.

The 3-1 league victory over Bournemouth remains the only time City have picked up three points this season in front of their home fans.

'Swansea is a big game but they are all big games over the course of the season,' said Neil. 'We will dust ourselves down, as we always do, and we will be ready for Swansea to approach that looking to get the points.

'Home or away you want to win but if you take the home games in isolation then Stoke City I don't think there is any question we should have won that game, Crystal Palace at the start of the season, we had that decision to disallow the goal against us which could have made it 2-2.

'It is easy to bolt the home games together and put them into one bracket.

'I think over the course of the season you can't really do that. Individual events impact on each game so for me it is not a case of saying its another home game we haven't won, so file it in the same category.'

Swansea midfielder KI Sung-Yueng is in no doubt what is on the line for Garry Monk's men.

'Definitely we need three points, it's a massive game,' said Ki. 'But it's a home game for them and teams like Norwich, West Ham and Stoke are always tough games. We need to concentrate in the next game against Norwich because that will be difficult. We need to concentrate more than we did against Arsenal. (on Saturday) We just need two per cent more. We played brilliantly, but we just need a result.'
