Swansea City's Neil Taylor: Let's bounce back against Saints
15th September 2014
Neil Taylor revealed the Swans are desperate to bounce back after suffering their first defeat of the season at Chelsea last weekend.
The Swans went down 4-2 at Stamford Bridge after having given Jose Mourinho's side a big fright by taking a 12-minute lead courtesy of a John Terry own goal.
But a Diego Costa hat-trick and another from substitute Loic Remy steered the Blues towards victory, with Jonjo Shelvey's late consolation reducing the deficit.
Despite the defeat, Wales international Taylor believes the Swans can take plenty of positives as they look to return to winning ways against Southampton at the Liberty on Saturday.
"We won't get bogged down in it. We know we've started well and we know we've performed well," said the 25-year-old, whose cross set up the Swans' opening goal at the Bridge.
"The first 20 minutes were probably the best we've played this season yet we've come away with no result.
"Conceding just before half-time in a poor manner is difficult to take as well. It gave them the impetus in the second half, but we stuck at it.
"I think their quality told in the second half. They were able to bring on three outstanding players who affected the game.
"They were the difference, but we can hold our heads up high.
"We'll move on and the next game at home is one that we'll really look to push on and win."
