Swansea must get back on track after Spurs loss by taming Tigers

Swansea City manager Garry Monk discusses reports linking Ecuador international Jefferson Montero to match-fixing.

Swansea will still be sore after a late, undeserved 2-1 defeat at home to Tottenham last week. This Saturday will give the team a chance to vent their frustration on a far more vulnerable opponent in Hull City, but only if they can keep their focus. The Tigers are desperate to break a nine-match winless streak and climb out of the relegation zone before the New Year. Here are three things to consider ahead of this one ...

Steve Bruce may be confident his Hull side have enough quality to avoid relegation but that has not stopped him labelling Saturday's clash with Swansea a "cup final".

It is, of course, a familiar cliche for bosses to fall back on when battling the drop but December is an early first outing for the phrase.

Ashley Williams believes Swansea must lift the scoring burden from top marksman Wilfried Bony.

The Ivory Coast striker became the first player to score 20 Barclays Premier League goals in the calendar year during Swansea's 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.

Individual errors cost Swansea points against Tottenham

Swansea manager Garry Monk pointed to individual mistakes as to why his side fell to Tottenham at home despite controlling most of the game.

Swansea had never beaten Spurs in a Premier League game before Sunday. Even though the lousy Spurs showed up instead of the slick Spurs, Swansea couldn't break the trend. Tottenham have been wildly inconsistent this season and might be wondering how they managed to win after putting in a sub-par performance against a clearly focussed Swansea.

Perhaps part of the problem is that, as usual, most of Swansea's focus was offensive, and it was two defensive mistakes that made the difference. This wasn't...
