Swansea’s Ashley Williams believes his team have taken more responsibility since coach Francesco Guidolin was admitted to hospital.
Guidolin is still in hospital after missing Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates due to a chest infection.
First-team coach Alan Curtis took charge of Saturday’s clash against Norwich and the Swans recorded a 1-0 win over the Canaries thanks to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s strike.
Speaking after the win, Williams insists everyone within the squad is starting to take more responsibility.
He told reporters: “With the gaffer not being here we’ve had to step up a little bit and try and make it smoother on game day and in training.
“Going to London for a week [for the Tottenham and Arsenal games] has brought us closer together as a squad and we can’t really ask more from two games.
“The gaffer’s not been well and hopefully the two wins have cheered him up from his hospital bed. Before he went into hospital he set us up for the games and he’s been brilliant since he came in.
“Hopefully he will be back in Swansea soon, fit and well and back on the training pitch.”
