Garry Monk: "We have not been up to scratch"

Garry Monk calls on his side to improve away from home after Southampton chalk up a 3-1 win over Swansea City at St Mary's Stadium.

Swansea City manager Garry Monk has revealed his frustration with his side's performances away from home after they fell to back-to-back Premier League losses on the road with a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Southampton this afternoon.

The Saints dominated the opening hour of the game and led through goals from Virgil van Dijk, Dusan Tadic and Sadio Mane, before Gylfi Sigurdsson bagged a late consolation goal from the penalty spot.

"We have not been up to scratch in the last two away games. We were not focused enough and possibly made too many mistakes today," Monk told BBC Sport.

"They punished us and we never recovered from that. All three goals were disappointing. It was poor decision making and individual errors. It's not good enough for the standard we have set here at the club.

"We pushed to try to get back. We got the goal then had a couple of chances to make it 3-2. It's difficult to assess straight after the game what went wrong."

The result sees Monk's side, who are now without a win in their last four games in all competitions, fall to 11th in the Premier League table.
