Swans showing adaptability, says Cork
16th August 2015
Jack Cork believes the Swans are already showcasing their ability to be adaptable following their opening two games of the Barclays Premier League campaign.
The Swans ran out convincing 2-0 winners over Newcastle United on Saturday to back up an impressive opening day showing at Chelsea, where they secured a hard-fought 2-2 draw with the champions.
Bafe Gomis and Andre Ayew were once again on the scoresheet to make it two goals-a-piece from their first two games after they both scored last weekend at Stamford Bridge.
Garry Monk's side dominated throughout the 90 minutes on their first home game of the season against Newcastle, and Cork insists the Swans are already showing that they can achieve positive results through different approaches this season.
"The manager always talks about having different plans for different games," said the English midfielder.
"The idea was to press Newcastle, try and get in their faces and use our home crowd to our advantage.
"It was a different tactic to what we used at Chelsea, but it worked and everyone is happy with the win.
"We've shown we're a strong team in the first two games, even when it has been 11 against 11 we have created chances and scored goals.
"We've started the season brightly and hopefully we can go on from here."
Meanwhile, Cork was keen to praise the impact new signing Andre Ayew has made since signing for the Swans, while highlighting Jefferson Montero's blistering start to the season.
"Andre has settled in really well, and he and Bafe have scored all our goals this season, which goes to show what a good start he has had.
"Jeff has shown how sharp he is during the first two games. If he can keep fit and keep playing like that, he will cause a lot of defenders problems this season."
