Garry Monk's tactical flexibility sets up Swansea to beat Manchester United

Swansea completed their first-ever league double over Manchester United to dent the Red Devils' hopes of finishing in the Champions League places.
Manchester United had only lost one of 19 matches before Jonjo Shelvey and Swansea put an abrupt end to the Red Devils' good run of form.

For the first time ever, Swansea have beaten Manchester United home and away in the same season.

It's nice to pause long enough to take stock of what Swansea have accomplished at times like these, but there is also a danger that the details of Saturday's 2-1 win might be overlooked in the celebrations. Most exciting is the fact that it showed a glimpse of the future.

Defensive issues wreck Man United's improved display at Swansea

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was left frustrated by his side's inability to convert their chances as they fell to a 2-1 defeat away at Swansea.

SWANSEA, Wales -- Three observations from Swansea's 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Saturday afternoon at the Liberty Stadium.

1. Man United: A better performance, a worse result

What must Louis van Gaal make of English football? For months his Manchester United side have played poorly, enjoyed moments of great fortune and lost just once in 19 games across the hardest period of the season. Then they go to Swansea City, a team that has won just once in the league since Boxing Day, they...

Monk should take a page out of Van Gaal's playbook and be less predictable

Swansea manager Garry Monk, right, has praised Manchester United's manager Louis van Gaal, left, for his ability to adapt to his opponents but might want to emulate the Dutchman with Swansea only having one Premier League win in 2015.

Swansea play host to Manchester United on Saturday in a game which which pits two very different teams, and two very different managers, against each other. Louis van Gaal will grace the visitor's technical area, a manager who plays the part of eccentric coach to perfection, while Swansea's own Garry Monk will provide staunch sensibility in contrast.

The knock on Van Gaal is that he doesn't know what his best side is, but that's secretly all part of the plan. The Dutchman has carefully cultivated...

Swansea City with more questions than answers after West Brom loss

Swansea City manager Garry Monk was disappointed with his side after watching their 2-0 defeat to West Brom in the Premier League.

In his postmatch interview, Swansea manager Garry Monk correctly identified that his side's lack of intensity was a major factor in a disappointing 2-0 away defeat to West Bromwich Albion. The question is: If Monk knew his team weren't performing well enough to get a result, why didn't he do more about it?

Without wanting to open old wounds, it doesn't seem very long ago that Monk's predecessor, Michael Luadrup, was coming under criticism for his apparently blasé touchline persona. Monk does...

Swansea face set-piece test against Tony Pulis' West Brom

Swansea head coach Garry Monk says West Brom boss Tony Pulis offered him encouragement and advice, when he took on the job at the Liberty Stadium.
Ki Sung-yueng marked his return from the Asian Cup in Australia by salvaging Swansea a point in a 1-1 draw against his old club Sunderland.

Not reflected in last Saturday's 1-1 scoreline against Sunderland was Swansea's almost total domination of their opponent. The Swans ended up with close to 60 percent possession and 16 shots to four, a week after playing an entirely different game to upset Southampton away from home.

Swansea's strong start to February has been just the tonic after a troublesome January in which the only win Swansea recoded was against fourth division opposition (Tranmere, in the FA Cup). A mid-week trip to the Midlands...

Ki shows Swansea what they've been missing in midfield

Ki Sung-yueng marked his return from the Asian Cup in Australia by salvaging Swansea a point in a 1-1 draw against his old club Sunderland.

It seems crazy now to think that last season, Ki Sung-yueng was considered sufficiently surplus to requirements that he was shipped off to Sunderland on loan. Of course, last season Swansea had Jonathan De Guzman filling out their midfield instead and, truth be told, both players took a while to convince in a Swansea shirt.

By the end of his run with the team, De Guzman was an attacking force and there have been times this season that the Swans have missed his supporting runs from deep. A lack...
