Momentum is key, says Bony
31st October 2014
The Swans target a historic first victory at Everton on Saturday, with Wilfried Bony insisting momentum is the key word for Garry Monk's side.
Last weekend's 2-0 win over Leicester City at the Liberty moved the Swans up to sixth in the Barclays Premier League table with nine games played.
Monk's side cruelly exited the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night as Liverpool struck twice in the final minutes to clinch their spot in the quarter-finals.
But Bony insists victory at Goodison Park - a ground where the Swans are yet to emerge victorious - will help build momentum in the club's league campaign.
"We know it will be a very tough game, but we are going there to win," said the Swans striker, who has scored four goals in his last three league appearances.
"To get another win in the league would be great for our momentum.
"We've made a good start in the league - sixth is a good position for us - and now it's about building on that."
The Ivory Coast international could find himself going up against four-time African Player of the Year Samuel Eto'o on Saturday.
Former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker Eto'o was in the Chelsea team last season that beat the Swans in both league fixtures.
And now he's showing his quality at Everton following his summer switch, with the Cameroon star scoring three goals in five league appearances.
And Bony pinpointed the threat Eto'o poses for the Swans at the weekend.
"Samuel is a great player and person," lauded Bony. "He is an experience player and is someone who can score at any time. He's had an amazing career with some top clubs, and he's delivered with every team.
"So he is definitely one of the players we have to stop on Saturday. Everton have some very good players and Samuel is among them. If he gets a chance to score then he normally hits the net, so we have to try and stop him on Saturday if we want to get a good result."
