Swansea City defender Neil Taylor: We must raise our game
15th September 2015
Neil Taylor insists the Swans must quickly raise their game if they want to avoid consecutive league defeats when Everton visit the Liberty on Saturday (3pm).
Garry Monk's side saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end at Watford last weekend following a 1-0 defeat.
At Vicarage Road, the Swans failed to reach the performance levels that had seen them beat Newcastle and Manchester United along with picking up points at Chelsea and Sunderland.
And Taylor believes his team-mates must quickly return to their high standards as they face an Everton side that is high on confidence following a 3-1 win over Chelsea last Saturday.
"We have to perform better than we did at Watford," said the Wales international. "It was a poor performance overall when you look at it, and it's one that you just try to move on from quickly.
"It's difficult to take, but like we've always said, we don't get too high after wins against Manchester United and we don't get too low after defeats like Watford.
"That's the Premier League - anything can happen.
"Now we face Everton. Beating Chelsea was obviously a great win for them but if we do what we can do at home then we're a match for anyone.
"The idea in this league is to never lose two in a row and that's what we'll strive to do.
"We're confident we can bounce back."
