Federico Fernandez rues Swansea City's below-par performance
12th September 2015
Federico Fernandez conceded the Swans failed to get anywhere near their best after going down to a 1-0 defeat at Watford.
Garry Monk's side saw their unbeaten run end in Hertfordshire as Watford took three points despite seeing Valon Behrami sent off shortly after Odion Ighalo's 59th-minute opener.
Despite coming from behind to beat Manchester United before the international break, the Swans were unable to put in the same type of performance against Quique Flores' newly-promoted side.
And Fernandez, who went close to a late equaliser, felt the Swans were well below par.
"It was very disappointing. It was not a good performance by us," said the Argentinian defender.
"It was a tough game, which we expected. It was a very physical match, but overall we didn't play well enough.
"We didn't get the ball much to Jonjo or Gylfi, and we didn't really find space to exploit.
"We know we can play a lot better, and we must do that in our next game."
The Swans were backed by 2,200 fans at Vicarage Road, with the Jack Army snapping up their full allocation.
And Fernandez was quick to thank the fans for their support, and promised a better performance when Everton visit the Liberty next Saturday.
"The fans were great. Our away support is always incredible," he added.
"They were really loud in the corner of the stand, and I promise the performance will be different in the next game.
"We must pick ourselves up quickly to be ready for next week. This was a really disappointing result for us, but we must get back to our usual level of performance."
