Monk: We will come out fighting
27th November 2015
Garry Monk insists his players will come out "fighting" in a bid to get back to winning ways against Liverpool on Sunday (4.15pm).
The Swans head to Anfield looking to turn their fortunes around after a difficult period, and build on last weekend's draw against Bournemouth.
Despite being 2-0 down against the Cherries, the Swans came back to earn a point and Monk says his players will continue to fight in order to earn another positive result.
"Throughout this period we've tried different things," he said. "It was difficult circumstances last week, going 2-0 down at home but we showed great character and unity to come back from that and the whole squad are fully committed.
"I know that whoever goes out onto that pitch is giving 100 per cent and trying to do their best for the club and for the team.
"There are no easy games in the Premier League - you have good periods and bad periods throughout a season.
"But we must trust what we do. We've been very successful during my time here and the players understand and trust that process.
"We're in a moment where we're not playing at our best but trusting the process is the most important part and that is what we'll continue to do and try to improve.
"But we will come out fighting because that is what this club has been built on. The players understand that, they are working incredibly hard to put it right, and I can see that commitment."
The Swans now face a Liverpool side that are brimming with confidence following last weekend's thumping 4-1 win over Manchester City.
They have also beaten Chelsea in recent weeks and Monk was full of praise for the work in which Jürgen Klopp has achieved since taking over at Anfield - but the Swans boss says his only focus is on his side this coming Sunday.
"I think he's done great so far," he said. "He seems like a great character and very personable with great charisma.
"They are in a good run of form but this week has been about us and trying to get back to what we do best.
"I've seen a great determination with the players and we'll go there and be ourselves. In adversity you have to come out and show that fighting spirit and that's what we'll do.
"We are trying to improve in all areas and if we get a couple of good results you'll see the confidence grow."
