Garry Monk: Swansea can still improve

Swansea boss Garry Monk insists he is not getting carried away with the club's 100 percent start to the Premier League season.

Monk's men followed up their shock opening-day win at Manchester United by beating battling Burnley at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea withstanding pressure for most of the second half after Nathan Dyer had given them a 23rd-minute lead.

But Monk is fully aware of the pitfalls of management, even though he has only been in the Swansea hot-seat for eight months.

"It's a fantastic start and great to have six points, I'm not going to lie about that," Monk said after the game. "The way I am, the players know we have a [League Cup] game on Tuesday and that is what we focus on.

"It's the best start we could have had, but we know we are only two games from being on your back and getting dragged down.

"We have to build on what we've done and improve on mistakes."

Monk was delighted with how Swansea withstood Burnley's second-half assault, with goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski only really stretched once when David Jones burst onto Danny Ings' pass and forced a fine save from the Polish international.

Nathan Dyer's goal was all Swansea needed to ensure their perfect start to the Premier League continued.

"It was very hard. The first half we controlled the game and if we could have got a second that would have made it easier," Monk said. "We spoke at halftime that they would throw everything at us and we weren't at our fluent best, but we dug in and defended well.

"Burnley were in a no-lose situation but we limited them to one shot on target and defended very well the whole game.

"We know we have to show the other side of the game and there are times when you have to dig in.

"The boys were magnificent in that respect and that comes from the work we have done in preseason.

"We would have liked it to be more comfortable but six points in two games is all you can ask for."
