Monk: We want to change Spurs record

2nd October

Garry Monk insists his side will be hoping to change their recent record against Tottenham when the two sides meet at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday (4pm).
The Swans return to action following last weekend's disappointing defeat at Southampton - a result which left them with just one point from their last three outings.
However, they haven't beaten Tottenham since winning promotion to the Premier League - and have lost the last seven meetings between the two sides.
A 1-1 draw on New Year's Eve in 2011 has been the most impressive in recent years, and Monk was quick to highlight the need to change the record books against a Spurs side that have lost just once in their last nine games in all competitions.

"We've had some very good games against them since we've been in the Premier League," said Monk. "But at the same time we have only taken one point from those matches, even if we have deserved better in some games.
"But its a record that we want to change, that's our focus and we'll be aiming to do that this weekend.
"We were excellent against them at home last season and we know that they are a very good team with fantastic players and a forward-thinking manager."
After a fine start to the season in which the Swans drew with champions Chelsea and beat Manchester United at the Liberty, Garry Monk's side are winless in four matches and have scored just once in that period.
Bafetimbi Gomis and summer signing Andre Ayew lead the club's scoring charts with four and three goals respectively, but Monk isn't concerned about who scores the goals - instead focusing on winning matches.
"It's important that we improve as a team," he said. "The two games we haven't performed in - Watford and Southampton - have come in a short space of time and for me it is about us performing better and then we'll be fine.
"The chances we have created have fallen to different players, but I don't mind who scores because its all about winning games.
"It's about that consistency level - to try and get back to where we were at the start of the season."
