Lukasz Fabianski's delight with defensive display
15th August 2016
Lukasz Fabianski hailed Swansea City's defensive qualities after recording their first clean sheet of the campaign in last weekend's 1-0 win over Burnley.
Leroy Fer's first goal for the club earned the Swans all three points on the opening day of the Premier League season.
At the other end of the pitch, Fabianski's efforts proved instrumental in thwarting Burnley's advances
The Polish keeper made two fine saves to deny Sam Vokes and Dean Marney while he sprang into action by racing out of his box to tackle Andre Gray when the striker latched onto a through ball.
And the 31-year-old expressed his delight with the Swans'defensive performance at Turf Moor.
"We were delighted with the win and clean sheet," he said. "It's always difficult going to a newly-promoted team on the opening day of the season.
"For the defensive side of our game it is great to keep a clean sheet because it gives you confidence going forward. You know all the work you put in during pre-season is working.
"Everyone worked very hard defensively. The defenders did a great job but the midfielders and Fernando (Llorente) also played a big part in stopping them from scoring.
"Getting the first win of the season in the first game is fantastic. The victory and clean sheet gives us more energy for the rest of the season."
