'I would have expected better'

Paul Clement has admitted he expected better from his Swansea City side after their frustrating start to the season.

The Swans were beaten on the road for the first time in 2017-18 as Diafra Sakho’s last-minute goal settled what had been a fairly quiet game at West Ham.

Clement’s side now have five points from their seven Premier League games so far this season, with a poor run at the Liberty – the Swans have lost three out of three on their own patch – proving particularly costly.

And Clement concedes that he thought his team would be better off at this point.

“Of course I’m concerned. We have five points from seven games and I would have expected better,” said the Swans boss.

“I would have expected better in terms of points and I would have expected better in terms of performances.

“Today the performance was better. I don’t feel as angry as I did after Watford and Newcastle, but I am frustrated with the result and to concede so late on.”
