Sigurdsson reflects on disappointing defeat
27th September 2015
Gylfi Sigurdsson was left frustrated and disappointed despite scoring his first goal of the season in Swansea's 3-1 defeat at Southampton.
Sigurdsson scored from the penalty spot in the 84th minute at St. Mary's Stadium, but it proved all too late for the Swans, who were already trailing by three goals.
Virgil Van Dijk opened the scoring inside ten minutes with a crashing near-post header, before Sadio Mane and Dusan Tadic extended the hosts' advantage in the second half.
Sigurdsson, of course, pulled one back late on, but his goal was little consolation for the Icelandic midfielder.
"It was disappointing," said Sigurdsson. "We wanted to bounce back after the defeat at Watford and the draw against Everton, but it wasn't to be.
"We started off slowly and were still in the game at one-nil, but we made a couple of mistakes, which they took advantage of.
"It was difficult going forward. They defended well and we found it hard to break them down.
"Towards the end of the game, we passed the ball better, there was more movement in midfield and we created a few chances, but didn't deserve to win today.
"It was nice to get my first goal of the season, but at the end of the day it's all about the result."
