Sigurdsson highlights resilient streak

31st August 2015

Gylfi Sigurdsson highlighted Swansea's resilient streak as key to their successful start to the season following a 2-1 victory over Manchester United.

Garry Monk's side maintained their unbeaten start to the 2015-16 Barclays Premier League campaign after coming from behind to beat the Red Devils, courtesy of goals from Andre Ayew and Bafe Gomis.

After trailing 1-0 in the second half, thanks to Juan Mata's 48th-minutes, the Swans fought back to clinch their third successive win over Louis van Gaal's side.

And Sigurdsson, who was the provider for Ayew's third goal of the season, hailed Swansea's strength in character to achieve results even when they're not on top of their game. 

"It was a really tough game because we didn't play our best football," said the Icelandic international. 

"But I think it shows the resilience we have in our team that, even when we don't play at our best, we can still win games.

"It's important to have that, especially at home. I'm pretty sure that not many teams will want to come here."

Meanwhile, Sigurdsson was full of praise for Swanse's goalscoring duo Ayew and Gomis, who have scored seven goals between them in four games this season.

"They've been fantastic," he added. "Andre and Bafe have been scoring a lot of goals and linking up really well. Hopefully that will continue throughout the season."
