Garry Monk relieved as Swansea City see off Leicester City to end...

GARRY Monk breathed a sigh of relief as Swansea City saw off Leicester City thanks to Wilfried Bony's double, admitting: The points were all that mattered. Swansea ended their five-game Premier League winless run with a dominant victory which moved them up to sixth in the table. Bony finished a fabulous move with his third goal in as many Swansea games 11 minutes before half-time. And he sealed the victory with a close-range finish just before the hour. I'm pleased with the...

Barclays Premier League: Swansea City 2-0 Leicester City

Barclays Premier League: Swansea City 2-0 Leicester City

SWANSEA City won for the first time in six Premier League games as a Wilfried Bony double defeated Leicester. After a week of fall-out following Garry Monk's comments about diving, the result saw Swansea climb to sixth in the table. Bony exchanged passes with Gylfi Sigurdsson then smashed in at the near post before side-footing home when the Icelander again turned creator in the second half. Monk's men led at half-time after a sublime piece of Bony skill broke the deadlock. The hosts had...

HE only cost Swansea City £10,000 back in 2007. It was a fair bit for the club at the time. But it has proved money well spent as Angel Rangel is set to start his 300th game for the club this afternoon. The player signed for the Swans from Segunda B outfit Terrassa. He came close to ending up at Blackpool in 2010, but the Swans clung on to their Spanish star. And he has been a regular at the Liberty Stadium ever since. But he has also won supporters for his off-pitch...

Five things Swansea City must do to overcome Leicester City

Five things Swansea City must do to overcome Leicester City

1. GET the crowd going. Would Stoke City have won that penalty last weekend without the baying Stoke crowd behind them? Perhaps not. In his Evening Post column this week, Lee Trundle has called on Swans fans to turn up the noise levels at the Liberty because that could just make a difference. 2. Lend the referee some spectacles. Perhaps Michael Oliver did not see Angel Rangel's challenge on Victor Moses last Sunday, so the Swans should give Mike Jones - the man with the whistle this weekend -...

MARK Hughes has backed the Football Association's decision to investigate Garry Monk's comments after Swansea City's defeat to Stoke last weekend. Monk was scathing of Potters winger Victor Moses in the wake of that loss, branding him a cheat for the tumble that led to a penalty and Stoke's equaliser. The Swansea boss also criticised referee Michael Oliver. Today the FA announced it would be seeking Monk's observations on his remarks. And Stoke manager Hughes said: "I think it's right the FA...
