Taylor: Swans improving all the time
22nd November 2014
Neil Taylor says Swansea City showed yet more signs of improvement despite falling to defeat against Manchester City.
The Swans shocked the hosts by taking an lead through Wilfried Bony's cool finish, but Stevan Jovetic levelled for City when he converted a teasing cross from Jesus Navas.
Yaya Toure eventually proved to be the match-winner with his second-half strike but the visitors came close to earning a point late on as Bafetimbi Gomis shot wide and Jonjo Shelvey's deflected free kick dropped inches wide of the post.
But Taylor believes the result - and performance - is another sign of their progress this season.
"We started really well and it was great for us to get the first goal," he said. "But I think we took our foot off the gas a little and let them back into the game.
"They have massive quality and are a difficult side to contain at times but I thought we gave a great account of ourselves and were always in the game.
"We pushed towards the end but it wasn't quite enough. But hopefully we will look back at the game and it is one where we impressed.
"We'd rather have the points than the performance but they changed it tactically at half-time and stopped us from playing out from the back.
"It was tough second half but we stuck to the task and had a couple of chances late on to get a point."
