Monk cannot wait to win more games

Swansea manager Gary Monk says that he cannot wait to start winning games once again. The club enjoyed a great start to the season, but difficult matches against the likes of Chelsea have brought their season to grounding halt. They now have been unable to win in the last three matches going into the weekend. However, this run finally came to an end after Swansea managed a 2-0 win over newly promoted Leicester City. This much-needed victory kept them in the hunt for a European spot at the end of the campaign. Swansea are sixth in the table with the same number of points as Arsenal and Liverpool.

After the victory, Monk says that winning is a special feeling that he is delighted to get once again. The Swansea manager came in for criticism during the week after he criticised Victor Moses of foul play when his team lost 2-1 against Stoke last week. Star striker Wilfried Bony, who has been unable to get much game time in the opening few matches of the season, finally showed that he is starting to get back to his best form. He scored twice – on either side of the break – to get his Swansea team their first win in four.

“The five games that we haven’t won, we have played very, very well and deserved a lot more than we have actually got. But, at the end of the day, the points are what they are, whether you deserve them or not. So it’s important today. There was a little bit of pressure on us, not too much but a little bit and I think the players handled that very well and in the end got a deserved win. Very pleased with the first-half, I thought we did very well and were moving the ball well enough,” said Monk.
