Swansea failing to convince with their football

Swansea manager Garry Monk heralded a second successive clean sheet as his side made it six points from six in the Boxing Day matchup against Aston Villa.

Swansea clung on for another 1-0 win on Boxing Day and although manager Garry Monk talked up his teams 'winning mentality' afterwards, there is a difference between playing to win and managing not to lose. Against Aston Villa, Swansea got lucky.

Real 'winning mentality' would have seen Swansea take more than seven shots on goal all game. That's roughly one shot every 13 minutes, hardly a winning formula under most circumstances.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's stunning free-kick gave Swansea a hard-fought 1-0 Barclays Premier League victory over Aston Villa at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea manager Garry Monk heralded a second successive clean sheet as his side made it six points from six in the festive programme against Aston Villa.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's spectacular 13th-minute free-kick was enough to secure Swansea a 1-0 victory but Monk's men had to withstand late pressure at a rain-lashed Liberty Stadium with goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski making smart saves to deny Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's stunning free kick gave Swansea a hard-fought 1-0 Premier League victory over Aston Villa at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea looked as if they would be able to build on Sigurdsson's 13th-minute strike with Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero causing Villa problems whenever he had the ball.

But Montero's departure to a hamstring injury halfway through the first period tilted the balance of power and Villa will consider themselves hugely unlucky not to return home to the Midlands with...
