Monk unhappy with Swansea struggles

Garry Monk was critical of Swansea after they continued their four-game winless run with a “disappointing” defeat against Southampton.

Goals from Virgil Van Dijk, Dusan Tadic and Sadio Mane saw Saints cruising towards victory just after the hour mark at St Mary’s.

Since beating Manchester United at the end of August, the Swans have lost three and drawn one, while Championship Hull knocked them out of the Capital One Cup in midweek. The manager expressed his dissatisfaction at such a poor run.

“We have not been up to scratch in the last two away games,” Monk said. “We were not focused enough and possibly made too many mistakes today.

“They punished us and we never recovered from that. All three goals were disappointing. It was poor decision-making and individual errors. It’s not good enough for the standard we have set here at the club.

“We pushed to try to get back. We got the goal then had a couple of chances to make it 3-2. It’s difficult to assess straight after the game what went wrong.”
