Britton struggled to earn regular football in the first half of the campaign, making just three substitute appearances in the opening 11 games, while he had to wait until November for his first start.

The midfielder has been more heavily involved in the second half of the season, though, and has played a role in helping the Swans to open up a 10-point gap to the bottom three with six games to go.

Swansea welcome Chelsea to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday and the 33-year-old is keen to see the club try and pick up a victory.

Britton said: “We are not completely safe but two or three points should be enough for us. But we are looking at the teams above and saying ‘okay, let’s track them down and see if we can finish higher than them’ rather than looking over our shoulder.

“If we did this interview six weeks ago then we would be talking very differently – I’d be talking about how we needed to create a gap between us and everyone below us.

“I have always been confident that we would get ourselves out of the battle against relegation. We didn’t want to go into the last couple of games not knowing if we would be safe.”
