The numbers don't lie for underperforming Swansea

Garry Monk's Swansea can make it four wins in four matches to start the season should they take down Chelsea on Saturday.
Swansea manager Garry Monk takes his side to Anfield to face Liverpool on Monday.

Swansea were not particularly convincing in their 1-0 Boxing Day win vs. Aston Villa, ceding far too much possession to their visitors and having to rely on highlight-reel saves from Lukasz Fabianski and a blown penalty call to survive.

Meanwhile, Liverpool edged past Burnley by the same score. The two results and performances reinforced the feeling that neither of these sides is playing to its full potential.

The excellence that saw Liverpool come so close to winning last season's title owed more...

Liverpool close the first half of their campaign on Monday when they welcome Swansea to Anfield.

Rodgers said: "For us the objectives are very much the same - we want to finish in that top four. We know there's...

Swansea's Garry Monk calls Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers an inspiration

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.

Garry Monk has revealed his old manager Brendan Rodgers has allowed Swansea to use Liverpool's training base before their FA Cup tie at Tranmere next week -- but fears the offer could be withdrawn if the Welsh club win at Anfield on Monday night.

Monk and Rodgers forged a close bond working together at Swansea and that relationship has lasted the test of time even though they are now managerial opponents in the Premier League.

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.

Villa were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty for Ash Williams'...
