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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
