Bony focussing on positives

25th March 2014

Wilfried Bony has called on his team-mates to take the positives into Tuesday's Premier League clash with Arsenal (7.45pm).
The Swans travel to the Emirates Stadium on the back of Saturday's defeat at Everton - a result that left the side just four points clear of the relegation zone.
But Garry Monk's men could take a huge step forward if they can earn a positive result against the Gunners ahead of a crucial clash against Norwich City on Saturday.
Arsenal, however, head into Tuesday's game on the back of a 6-0 thumping by Chelsea last weekend to leave Arsene Wenger's men seven points off the Premier League summit.
And Bony - who scored in the defeat at Goodison Park - believes the Swans can take many positives into the game at the Emirates.
"Saturday's game was disappointing. I don't think we deserved to lose but we did and that's football," he said.
"We created plenty of chances but just couldn't score and we were unlucky. But at the moment it is all about winning because we need points.
"We now have to take the positives into Tuesday's game against Arsenal, but it's going to be a difficult game.
"They will want to come back strongly after losing to Chelsea, but we also lost so both teams will want to win."
Bony's goal against Everton took his tally to 19 for the season in all competitions following his club-record move from Vitesse Arnhem last summer. 
The Ivorian frontman has been a revelation since the turn of the year, netting nine goals in 15 games.
But Bony is only focussing on scoring the goals that will ensure Premier League football remains at the Liberty Stadium next season.
"It is good for myself," he said. "But it didn't bring anything to the team because we lost on Saturday.
"Hopefully, though, the goals will count at the end of the season and not now. It is a positive thing that we are creating chances, and it is always nice when the striker scores."
