Cork: We were unlucky
16th March 2015
Jack Cork felt the Swans were unlucky not to come away with anything from Monday's 1-0 defeat against Liverpool at the Liberty.
The home side dominated the opening period and Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet had to be at his best to deny both Bafetimbi Gomis and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Liverpool offered little in the first half but Brendan Rodgers' men came out strongly after the interval and grabbed all three points thanks to a fortuitous goal from captain Jordan Henderson.
It was Swansea's first home defeat in six games and Cork felt the hosts did enough to merit something from the game.
"We had a few good chances in the first half, and played some nice football," he said. "You really need a goal to back up that effort, but they had a bit of momentum in the second half and it was always going to be hard.
"Liverpool matched us up in the second period and made it more difficult for us and we struggled a little bit. They managed to nick that goal and that's the way football goes sometimes.
"If we had got a goal or two in the first half I think it would have been a completely different game. Hopefully we can get our heads up now and go again next weekend.
"If we can put in a performance on Saturday like we did in the first half we'll be okay.
Villa have won the last three so we're playing another in-form team and try to get a result."
