Fabianski hails Swans character

22nd February 2015

Lukasz Fabianski hailed the character shown by the Swans to come from behind to make history against Manchester United.

The Swans ran out 2-1 victors over the Red Devils to complete their first-ever league double over Louis van Gaal's side.

After Ander Herrera opened the scoring for the visitors in the 28th minute, Monk's men responded magnificently as goals from Ki Sung-Yueng and Bafe Gomis sealed victory for the Swans.

And Fabianski, who is yet to taste defeat against United in four games, felt Swansea's strength in character enabled them to overturn a one-goal deficit.

"There is a lot of character in this team," said Fabianski. "It was a difficult moment to go 1-0 down against a team like United. The response we made was very important.

"It's a massive achievement for Swansea. I think we can be really proud of today's performance. We might not have had complete control of the game, but we made sure they didn't have many chances. 

"The whole team did a really good job and were very focused, which is really pleasing. We are very happy."

And the Swans stopper is hoping Monk's men can kick on from here to achieve their best ever points total in the Premier League.

"You can never be in the comfort zone in the Premier League because things can change so quickly," added Fabianski. 

"We have to try to get as many points as you can in the last 12 games and see where it takes us. We can push on from here.

"It would be a great achievement to make this Swansea's best season in the Premier League. It will give us extra motivation to keep pushing."
