150 Premier League matches: Swans 3 Cardiff City 0

9th May

With just three games left to play this season, it has been another memorable campaign for Swansea City.
Aside from achieving their highest ever points total and the possibility of their highest league finish, the Swans have also enjoyed a number of unforgettable wins since winning promotion to the Barclays Premier League in 2011.
Next Monday's game against Arsenal on May 11 will be our 150th Premier League match and to mark the occasion we have selected eight of the most memorable wins to look back on.
The next match in this special feature comes from February 2014 as the Swans hosted Cardiff City at the Liberty Stadium...

Swans 3-0 Cardiff City
The Liberty Stadium - Saturday, February 8, 2014

The Swans got Garry Monk's reign as head coach off to the best possible start as they claimed derby day revenge on Cardiff City with a 3-0 win at the Liberty.
Monk took over a side that was just two points off third-bottom West Ham, while Cardiff would have gone level on points with their rivals by winning this game. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were also looking to become the first team to claim a derby double, having won three months earlier at the Cardiff City Stadium.
After a goal-less first half, the Swans were quick out of the blocks after the restart as Pablo Hernandez came off the bench to set up Wayne Routledge, who found the bottom corner in the 47th minute.
It was all one-way traffic from then on as the scorer turned provider as Routledge crossed for Nathan Dyer, and the winger dived in to nod home in the 78th minute.
Things got even better for the home side as Wilfried Bony headed home his 17th goal of the season with four minutes to go following Hernandez's delivery from a free-kick.
Victory sealed, revenge gained.
It was the perfect start for Monk, whose side rose to the top half of the table with 27 points from 25 games.
