Swansea City head coach Garry Monk insists that the team should not rely on Michu for goals as they try to secure Premier League safety.

Swansea City head coach Garry Monk has called on his players not to heap pressure on Michu to find the back of the net.

The Spaniard, who has been out of action since December with an ankle problem, returned from injury in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

"A few of the other boys have been chipping in with goals while Michu has been out, and of course that has to continue," the South Wales Evening Post quotes Monk as saying. "If he can come in and add his quality and get a few goals then great, but it's a team effort."

The Swans are four points above the relegation zone in the Premier League table.
