PHOTOS: Swansea City's best moments of 2014

It has been a mixed year for Swansea City, but there were some moments that will live long in the memory.

There were ups and downs for Swansea City fans in 2014, but the year brought some memorable wins over prestigious opponents and the heroics of Wilfried Bony, who scored more Premier League goals than any other player.

2014 concludes with Swansea in ninth place and things could go either way in the second half of the campaign, but we are looking back at the standout moments of the calendar year for supporters at the Liberty Stadium.

Manchester United 1-2 Swansea (January 5, 2014)

Swansea started 2014 with a bang, winning at Old Trafford for the first time in their history. A last-gasp winner from Bony knocked 10-man Manchester United out of the FA Cup and prompted scenes of hysteria amongst the travelling support. It was Swansea's 10th time playing at Old Trafford and the last time they had done as much as draw was 1934.  

Swansea 3-0 Cardiff (February 8, 2014)

Garry Monk celebrated his first game in charge in the ideal fashion by beating Swansea's local rivals emphatically. After a level first-half, the Swans took control and goals from Wayne Routledge, Nathan Dyer and Bony vanquished Cardiff, who were left rooted in 19th place. 

Swansea 0-0 Napoli (February 20, 2014)

While the result ultimately didn't go their way due to a second leg defeat, Swansea's supporters had the chance to watch their side outplay Italian giants Napoli at the Liberty Stadium in this Europa League clash. Only some fine goalkeeping prevented the Swans from claiming a significant scalp.

Manchester United 1-2 Swansea (August 16, 2014)

Swansea pulled off an opening day coup by upsetting the odds and ruining Louis van Gaal's first competitive game as Manchester United manager. Ki Sung-yueng and Gylfi Sigurdsson stunned Old Trafford to replicate the scoreline of their FA Cup shock earlier in the year and get the season off to the best possible start.

Swansea 2-1 Arsenal (November 9, 2014)

Arsenal were stunned by a late Swansea comeback as Gylfi Sigurdsson's magnificent free-kick and a Bafetimbi Gomis header clinched all three points for the hosts in a game that had looked certain to go the Gunners' way. It was only Arsenal's second league defeat of the season and showed enormous grit and determination on the part of Monk's men, who moved into fifth, leapfrogging their opponents.
