Monk expecting tough game

Hazard, Brandt & Schulz: Dortmund’s Sensational Summer Coup

Swansea manager Gary Monk is hoping his side can start converting their good performances into results, but knows it won't be easy against Norwich this weekend.

The Swans have only won one of their last seven Premier League encounters, but Monk believes their performances have been better than the results show and is confident if they keep playing well the results will naturally follow.

"You always have periods during a season where you're not at your best performance levels, but during the last two games I've seen a lot of positives to show that we're coming back to our best level," he told Sky Sports.

"We understand results are the be all and end all, but if we continue to work as we are doing and show our best level in our next few games, we will see the right results.

"In our last two games we've shown good periods and shown that we're getting back to what we're good at.

"I thought against Arsenal, for the first 50 to 60 minutes, we played some of our best football this season, and the Aston Villa game showed the quality and determination of our defending."

Norwich are also struggling for form at the moment and have lost their last four league matches in a row, but Monk is not expecting an easy game at Carrow Road on Saturday.

"It will be a tough game with the crowd and the situation they are in, but we have to be ready for that, and we've prepared the players for it." he added.

"There are no easy games in this league, but what's important is we focus on what we are good at, have the courage to play our way and impose ourselves."
