The Swans' league form has dipped since winning the Capital One Cup in February, with no wins in their last six games.

Despite the recent poor run, Michael Laudrup's side have stayed in the top half of the table but they face a tough end to the season, with upcoming games against deposed champions Manchester City, relegation-battling Wigan and title winners Manchester United.

"When we play against the best players and teams in the league, we have to grow up. We have done that at times this year," said the 24-year-old South Korean.

"Even if we have lost games, we have dominated parts of matches and we have learned a lot from the experiences.

"We have Man City and Man United coming up so they are tough games.

"We've been disappointed we haven't won some games, but as players we still have the desire to do so."

Ki, who has made nearly 40 appearances for the Swans since joining from Celtic last August, is adamant that the squad's desire has been just as strong since they secured the club's first major trophy with an emphatic 5-0 win over Bradford City.

He added: "Just because we have won the League Cup and reached 40 points in the league, it does not mean that the pressure is off us. As players we still want to win matches."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
