Marvin's mixed emotion after cup exit

28th October 2014

Marvin Emnes revealed it was a night of mixed emotion after the Swans exited the Capital One Cup at the hands of Liverpool.

Emnes' stunning left-footed volley looked to have been enough to send the Swans into the quarter-final stage, but a dramatic finish saw Liverpool score twice in the final stages.

Sub Mario Balotelli guided home Fabio Borini's cross in the 86th minute before Federico Fernandez was dismissed in added-on time for a challenge on Philippe Coutinho.

Then, in the final few seconds, defender Dejan Lovren headed home a Coutinho free-kick to cap a frenetic finish at Anfield.

But for Emnes, who scored in the 3-0 win over Everton in the last round, it gave him an opportunity to impress manager Garry Monk.

And he was delighted to get his goal before celebrating in front of 2,000 Swans fans.

"I was in the right place and I hit it right into the corner," said the Dutchman. "it was a good goal and I'm delighted to have scored.

"Every time you have a chance to impress the manager you have to take it. That was my first chance of the night and I took it, which was very pleasing.

"But the game is 90 minutes long and everything changed within a few moments. They got their equaliser, then the red card is shown and they get a winner with virtually the last kick.

"We had worked so hard and to lose like that is very disappointing, particularly for our fans.

"I want to say thank you to the fans for their amazing support once again and hopefully we can get a good result in the next game for them."
