Swansea are currently on an alarming run of form.
Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has said the side's alarming form is hard to accept following their poor start to the season.
After a season which saw them finish with a record points haul in the Premier League - followed by an initially positive start to the campaign where they drew at Chelsea and recorded a home win against Manchester United, Swansea have been off colour, recording only five points from their last eight games.
Fabianski is quoted in the South Wales Evening Post, saying: "It's very hard to accept. I don't know what to say. It's very disappointing.
"I don't know. It's hard for me to say anything because it's just going wrong for us at the moment.
"We need to work hard and try to bounce back as quickly as we can.
"All the things have combined together. It's not one thing that's going wrong."
There will be a hope that Monk has been able to find things that need to be addressed during the international break so they can try and return to winning ways during a crucial period in their season in the build-up to Christmas.
But the feeling of that everything is going against them needs to end pretty soon. Hard work and getting back to doing what they did best during last season can ease fears around the Liberty Stadium.
