Monk hoping for repeat performance against Everton

30th October

Garry Monk is hoping victory over Everton earlier this season will give his side a lift ahead of the Premier League meeting between the two clubs this Saturday (3pm).
The Swans knocked Roberto Martinez's side out of the Capital One Cup last month after an impressive 3-0 win at the Liberty Stadium.
They now face an Everton side who have lost just once in their last six games in all competitions since that defeat in SA1.
Monk's men have never won at Goodison Park in the Premier League, with two defeats and a draw to their name since winning promotion three years ago.
But the Swans boss believes his side travel to Merseyside with a spring in their step following a positive start to the season.

"Goodison Park is always a difficult place to go," he said. "It's a great atmosphere there with a tight pitch and it will be a very tough game.
"They (Everton) had a difficult start to the season with the European games and coping with the demands that that can bring.
"But they have picked up a few results recently and have a very good squad of players. The win against them in the cup gives us confidence and it was a good win."
Saturday's game will be Swansea's second trip to Merseyside in the space of four days after Tuesday's Capital One Cup tie against Liverpool.
The Swans bowed out of the competition following a last-gasp defeat at Anfield and Monk is hoping that setback can spur his players on to improving their league form.
"We'll go there with the belief we can get a result," he said. "But after the midweek disappointment I hope we can put on a good performance.
"We judge each game on it's merits, but we'll have to be right on our game and hopefully we put a performance on that warrants some points."
Meanwhile, Monk confirmed that both Ki Sung-Yueng and Gylfi Sigurdsson have been involved in training ahead of Saturday's game.
