The Swans were rampant in the Wembley final, clinching a place in next season's Europa League with a 5-0 victory over League Tow Bradford.

But following on from one of the greatest days in the club's history, Swansea have lost two of their three matches with successive defeats to West Brom and Arsenal.

But Monk is confident the team will rally after the international break, starting with the match against Tottenham at the Liberty Stadium on 30 March, and secure a place in the top 10 this season.

"I think since the Bradford game everyone has seen the effort is there," the Swansea skipper said.

"We are still doing what we did before - making blocks, picking the runners up, putting our bodies on the line.

"Maybe our quality of football wasn't as good as normal against Arsenal, but I'm confident we will finish the season strongly and fight for a top-ten finish.

"It's not great going into the international break on the back of two defeats, but we will work hard during that time and make sure we are well prepared for the next game against Spurs."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
