Monk seeking away-day points

Brendon Rodgers’ side are yet to concede a goal at the Liberty

Stadium recording two wins and two draws in their opening home

games. Monk is hoping the Swans can claim their first away win

following heavy defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City that saw

them concede eight goals accompanied by a slim 1-0 loss to Arsenal.

Speaking to the South Wales Evening Post, the 31-year-old defended

the Swansea form outside of Wales, telling of the positives that

can be taken from their experiences so far. “People are talking

about how we haven’t got any points away from home, but you look at

the fixtures and we’ve had tough, tough games. “Really against

Arsenal we should have got something, but I think there are

positives we can take from the first three away games. “When the

fixtures came out I was looking at them and thinking, ‘Oh cheers,

thanks for that’, but looking at it now I think it’s been good for

us. “The games have been good experiences for us. I think the boys

will learn from them and we will keep progressing.”
