Garry Monk is keen to see a return to form as Swansea City host Manchester United – the team they beat on the Premier League’s opening day.
Swansea City manager Garry Monk has called on his players to reproduce the performance that earned them a season-opening win at Old Trafford when they host Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.
Ki Sung-yueng and Gylfi Sigurdsson found the net as Swansea registered a 2-1 victory to spoil Louis van Gaal’s first competitive game as United boss.
It was only the second time Swansea had triumphed at Old Trafford, coming just seven months after the first – by the same scoreline in the FA Cup third round last January.
Swansea’s season has hit something of a rocky patch since Christmas and the departure of star striker Wilfried Bony to Manchester City, though, with the Welsh club earning just one win from their last seven fixtures.
However, Monk is confident his players will turn it around, with inspiration to be drawn from August’s triumph over United.
