Swansea win at Villa shows Monk is on to something as boss

Bafetimbi Gomis struck a late winner for Swansea in their 1-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

With the 1-0 victory over relegation battlers Aston Villa on Saturday, Swansea are proving they are prepared to play despite guaranteed midtable security, while the man in charge is making a convincing case that he is the right choice to take the club forward forward long term.

Garry Monk's appointment as Swans manager following Michael Laudrup's dismissal last season might look from the outside like an obvious choice.

Garry Monk has Swansea City playing well despite having little to play for

Swansea manager Garry Monk reflects on his side's 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea's resolve to compete without the realistic incentive of Europa League qualification or the threat of relegation will be seriously tested this weekend away to Aston Villa. Villa are very much fighting for survival after a fractious season which has seen a managerial change and a team-wide goal drought that makes Bafetimbi Gomis look prolific.

Tim Sherwood, the man charged with rescuing Villa's season after Paul Lambert's dismissal, has started well. Villa have won four of six games in all...

Swansea City are the Premier League's best story that you shouldn't forget

Swansea manager Garry Monk reflects on his side's 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at the Liberty Stadium.
Jonjo Shelvey has thrived playing in the No.10 role for Swansea in place of the suspended Gylfi Sigurdsson.
In these days when we obsess over short-term success, Swansea City have achieved something quite remarkable that we shouldn't forget.

Twelve days. That's all: 12 days between the end of an era and the statement of intent. On Feb. 25, Arsenal lost at home to Monaco. Cue the caterwauling. Arsene Wenger's time at the Emirates, they said, had run its course. He was out of time, out of his element. He had to adapt, or go.

It was not even two weeks later that Arsenal went to Old Trafford and beat Manchester United in the FA Cup. Suddenly, the talk was of momentum and beating Manchester City to second. That is the time frame now for...

Swansea seek substitute options as Monk's men strive for Europe

Swansea boss Garry Monk hailed his side's first-half display against Liverpool, but it wasn't enough as the visitors won 1-0.

It took a fluke deflection for Liverpool to scrape a 1-0 win on Monday night and Swansea will feel rightfully aggrieved that a season-best first-half performance wasn't enough to earn at least a point.

Of course, the game was won -- or lost, depending on perspective -- in the second half. The halftime break stalled Swansea's momentum and gave Brendan Rodgers a chance to sort out his players.

His subtle tactical shift four minutes before Jordan Henderson's goal may seem to have been the reason for...

Liverpool keep pace with top-four chase in hard-fought win over Swansea

The ESPN FC panel discusses Liverpool's crucial victory over Swansea, as they set eyes on the Manchester United match.

SWANSEA, Wales -- Three quick thoughts from Liverpool's 1-0 win over Swansea at Liberty Stadium on Monday night.

1. Liverpool set up Super Sunday

Sunday it is, then. Should Liverpool beat Manchester United on Sunday, they will leapfrog their fiercest rivals and a Champions League qualification spot will be in their possession. Brendan Rodgers' team have not been so high since the opening weekend of the season, but it can now set a course to return to Europe's biggest competition.

Swansea City inch closer to season-best points' total vs. former boss

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson and Tommy Smyth predict the results of the weekend's biggest games.

With just eight more points, Swansea will set a team record for their best-ever total in the Premier League. That's not a bad personal goal for Garry Monk to aim for over the home stretch, and it's fitting that his side's next chance to add to their tally will come against Liverpool, the team managed by the man responsible for setting Swansea's current best: 47 points, in 2011-12.

Brendan Rodgers hit that high point after Swansea's first Premier League season, a campaign that saw the Swans finish...
