Swansea City manager Gary Monk has reacted to the side's 2-1 defeat to West Ham United on social media site Twitter.
Swansea City manager Gary Monk says that he can have no complaints about his side's 3-1 defeat to West Ham United this weekend.
The Swans were comfortably beaten by the London club and Monk admitted on social media site Twitter that they had failed to match the standards that they have set for the themselves over the campaign so far.
No excuses, our performance wasn't at the levels we have shown already this season. Now we must try and respond positively in our next game.— Garry Monk (@GarryMonk16) December 7, 2014
Swansea's good start to the season has gone largely unnoticed, but the Hammers proved to be too strong for them yesterday.
It had looked as if Monk's team could have posed a major threat to West Ham, when Wilfried Bony netted the first goal of the match, but the hosts fired back.
Andy Carroll scored twice with his head before Diafra Sakho put the gloss on the scoreline with a well-taken finish.
It was a win which elevated the Hammers into the top-four and left Swansea feeling deflated, as they slipped down in eighth place.
That still represents a good start for the Welsh club, but they will have disappointed to have not carried more threat against West Ham.
The Swans next opportunity to get back on track comes against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend and Monk will be looking for a much improved display for his team, as they look to heap more misery on a struggling Spurs outfit.
