Monk hails improved Swansea

Swansea City manager Garry Monk was happy with an improved showing from his team in their 2-2 draw with Tottenham at Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

The Welsh side had to settle for a point when Christian Eriksen scored two free-kicks to cancel out Andre Ayew's opener and Harry Kane's own-goal.

The Swans have not won in their last five matches in all competitions, including three defeats, but Monk thinks his team are now getting back to their best.

"I'm pleased with the performance," he said. "We have had a couple of performances below our standard, but we were much more like ourselves today.

"We wanted to get back on track, and the players were excellent today – you could see their passion and desire to win that game.

"Part of me is disappointed that we didn't take three points. Had we not have conceded those free-kicks, we'd have probably won the game. We had chances to win it at the end, but if you're honest I think it could have gone either way.

"Tottenham have great quality, are in good form and are a tough side to play against, but it was pleasing to see that we matched them. We just need to find that consistent level of performance, which was our biggest strength last season."
