Gylfi remains positive with season so far

29th December 2014

Gylfi Sigurdsson believes the Swans can feel positive at the halfway stage of the Barclays Premier League campaign, despite going down 4-1 to Liverpool at Anfield.
The Swans signed off 2014 in a disappointing manner as Liverpool deservedly picked up the points following goals from Alberto Moreno and an Adam Lallana brace along with an own goal from Jonjo Shelvey.
Garry Monk's side dropped down one position to ninth, but Sigurdsson - who scored his fifth goal of the season while his side trailed 2-0 - feels the Swans can be proud of their efforts so far from a campaign which has included wins over Manchester United and Arsenal.
"We can be happy with the position we are in," said the Icelandic midfielder. "There are a few games which we have been disappointed with in terms of our performance, but hopefully we can start another good run and keep ourselves high up in the league."
The disappointing result at Anfield means the Swans will look to bounce back to winning ways when they visit QPR on New Year's Day.
Of the setback on Merseyside, he said: "We made mistakes as a team and at places like Anfield you get punished for that.
"We had a chance after our goal which could have made it 2-2, but it wasn't to be.
"They didn't allow us much space in their half in the first period, but the game opened up after the break.
"But they were very dangerous going forward and they capitalised on our mistakes."
