Sigurdsson hails dominant Swans
23rd September 2014
Gylfi Sigurdsson hailed Swansea City's "dominant" as they swept past Everton to reach the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
The Swans produced a classy performance in front of a sell-out crowd at the Liberty Stadium to reach the last 16 of the competition.
Nathan Dyer put the home side ahead on the half hour before Sigurdsson doubled the lead after Sylvain Distin's header rebounded off the crossbar.
And substitute Marvin Emnes sealed a great night for Garry Monk's side by adding a third late on.
"I thought we played really well and dominated from the first minute," said Sigurdsson.
"It was great to score three goals and keep a clean sheet, and we could have scored a few more.
"We moved the ball quickly and had a lot of possession. We also managed to get a lot of crosses into the box as well which is great for me, and it was nice to get a goal."
Meanwhile, the result sees the Swans bounce back from consecutive league defeats to Chelsea and Southampton.
It was also their fourth clean sheet in all competitions this season as Sigurdsson and his team-mates look ahead to Wednesday night's draw for the fourth round.
"In the last two games we lost, we didn't play badly," he said. "But we bounced back strongly and showed everyone what we are capable of.
"It's nice to get the win but more importantly we're in the hat for the next round.
"Hopefully we can get a good draw at home and you never know what happens after that."
