Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup still aims for his side to get closer to their 40-point target when they will travel to Everton on Saturday.
The Swans have had another excellent season in the Premier League, with the added success of their Capital One Cup campaign, having reached the Semi-Final with a final at Wembley in their sights.
Despite looking like finishing in mid-table for the second successive season in the top flight, the Swans are still level-headed and admit that avoiding relegation is always the main target.
Laudrup says he's expecting a tough game at Everton, having suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat at home against the Toffees earlier in the season.
"The league is the most important competition,"
"Everton are a very good team, who are also very strong. They proved that when they played here in September and they always put you under great pressure.
"Against Chelsea recently they scored in the first minute and we know that it is going to be a very hard game. They didn`t play on Wednesday night, but that isn`t an excuse."
Speaking about picking his team and making changes to cope with the busy schedule, Laudrup added:
"It`s not a question of resting players, it`s more about using the squad we have,"
"The main thing is to pick a competitive team and I know that whoever plays on Saturday, will do a good job.
"We have made lots of changes in the last month, but everyone who has come in has done very well. We have already proved that we can be competitive in every game we play and that`s very important for us going forward.
"The only way we can deal with the schedule is by taking one game at a time. Tomorrow is a league game and we are already in a good position.
"But we still need 11 more points to reach the 40-point mark and that is our aim."
