Wilfried Bony "distraught" and Swansea City deserved...

GARRY Monk revealed Wilfried Bony was distraught in the dressing room after his red card helped condemn Swansea City to defeat by Southampton. Swansea had bossed the game before Bony's 39th-minute dismissal, the striker getting a second yellow for a tackle from behind on Maya Yoshida having been booked 19 minutes earlier for a shoulder charge on the Saints defender. Before the red, Bony had seen a header cleared off the line by Ryan Bertrand, while Wayne Routledge struck the bar in...

Barclays Premier League: Swansea City 0 Southampton 1

SWANSEA City slipped to their second defeat of their season as Wilfried Bony's first-half red card proved key to Southampton's win. Forced to sit back and soak up waves of Saints pressure in the second 45 minutes, Swansea looked like they may hold out for a hard-earned point. But Victor Wanyama struck with ten minutes remaining to ensure Southampton recorded a third straight victory over Swansea. Wanyama ghosted inside Ki Sung-Yueng to meet Graziano Pelle's pass and poke into the top...

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony favourite to open scoring...

SWANSEA City are 31/20 shots to return to winning ways with Victor Chandler when Southampton visit the Liberty tomorrow. At the start of the season many pundits thought Swansea and Southampton would struggle this campaign with a new manager (Ronald Koeman) at St Mary's and a fire-sale of many of their leading players. But the Saints will arrive at the Liberty Stadium in fourth place and they should, arguably, be unbeaten as they could have got at least a draw against Liverpool at Anfield on the...

5 things we learned from Swansea City v Chelsea

5 things we learned from Swansea City v Chelsea

1. Swansea City are beatable Swansea's perfect start to the season was never going to last forever and few will be surprised that it fell at Chelsea, a team tipped to be Premier League champions in May. But even in defeat, Garry Monk's side can take positives from their performance. For a period they out-passed and out-worked their opponents, sparking jeers from the home supporters. In the end the Blues' class came through. And there's no shame in being bettered by them. 2. Ki Sung-Yueng...
