Swansea City’s Tom Carroll hoping FA Cup performance sees him get more Premier League minutes

After putting in a good performance in Swansea City’s 6-2 win over Tranmere Rovers in the third round of the FA Cup, midfielder Tom Carroll is hoping he can get more game time, reports BBC Sport.

“I’ve been waiting a while for my goal and I got it, so I’m delighted. When you get the opportunity you’ve got to take it and hopefully I’ve done that and showed the manager what I can do. That’s where you get your confidence as well, getting that two, three, four games that you need to get into the flow,” he said.

Carroll, 22, is currently on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur, but has been in and out of the Swans’ first-team. Racking up just 362 minutes of Premier League football for Garry Monk’s side, the England U21 international has been played almost exclusively in the domestic cups, and it hoping such form makes up the manager’s mind.

“I’ve come here to play Premiership football, so I’d like to be playing in the next couple of games. When the opportunity came to join Swansea it was something I always wanted to do, to come here and play this style of football is great.”
