Tottenham remain Swansea's bogey side as Monk aims to arrest slump

Swansea boss Garry Monk admitted his side deserved to lose against Southampton last time out.

Swansea's poor run of form has come at exactly the wrong time. The three hardest fixtures of the season outside of the league's heavyweights are Everton, Southampton and Tottenham -- and it is precisely these teams the club should be looking to beat in order to progress.

Instead, they have already faltered at the first two fences, claiming just one point from a 0-0 draw against Everton and a 3-1 loss to Saints.

The frustrating stalemate with Everton, who have never lost against the Welsh side in...

Garry Monk needs to change his Swansea side to stop their slide

Garry Monk admitted Southampton deserved to beat his Swansea side on Saturday.

Saturday's 3-1 defeat against Southampton made it three losses out of four in all competitions for Swansea, whose sparkling early season form seems to have dissolved into a mire of underachievement and mediocrity.

It's easy to see what's going wrong. Individual errors and a general shortage of effort are allowing Swansea's opponents an easy passage. Southampton did not play especially well on Saturday, but coasted to a three-goal lead nonetheless.

Swansea visit to Southampton could be cure to Swans' scoring ills

Swansea City boss Garry Monk previews his side's match against Southampton, who he feels will offer quite a dynamic attacking presence.

Whether or not you consider the Capital One Cup important, the contrasting fortunes of Swansea and Southampton in the week will probably have some part to play when the sides meet in Premier League action this Saturday.

Southampton smashed MK Dons 6-0 away from home, while Swansea dropped out of the competition with a frustrating 1-0 defeat away to Hull. Saints' goal frenzy should give a side that has won just one of its opening six league games a shot of confidence. Swansea, meanwhile, will...

Swansea's "best of the rest" status on the line against Everton

The season is only five games old, but Saturday's match against Everton could be seen as a must-win for Swansea for a number of reasons.

The Swans' fast start to the season came to an abrupt stop last weekend when a flat performance against Watford was justly punished with a 1-0 defeat. The surprise result denied Swansea a win which would have given the club 11 points, good for second place. Instead, Swansea sit one place beneath seventh place Everton. Both teams have eight points.

Michu considering retirement; Ruben Neves being tracked by Chelsea

Dimitri Payet's stunning performance wasn't a surprise for West Ham boss Slaven Bilic after his side won 2-0 against Newcastle.
Michu was a revelation for Swansea in the 2012-13 season, scoring 22 goals and helping the Welshmen win the Capital One Cup.

The transfer window might be closed, but the rumours keep ticking. As always, Transfer Talk has the latest and greatest. See all the summer deals right here.

Michu on the brink of retirement?

Once the darling of Swansea City -- and favourite of Premier League fantasy managers everywhere -- Spain international Michu could be on the verge of retirement as talks over his future drag on.

Though still officially on the Swans' books, the 29-year-old has not returned to South Wales since his season-long...
