Football - Monk proud of Swans

Swansea boss Garry Monk was proud of his side for pushing Liverpool so hard in front of their own fans after a dramatic 4-3 defeat.

PA Sport Report

Liverpool, whose four goals were shared by England internationals Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge, squandered leads of 2-0 and 3-2 before finally securing the points.

But they conceded to their former midfielder Jonjo Shelvey before Wilfried Bony scored a brace.

"You come here against a team who are pushing for the league title and to come their ground and give them such a good game, to be in it right to the end, shows how well we've done," said Monk.

"Why can't they win it? They're up there and it's not out of their grasp.

"They've got the players to do it. With the strikeforce they have and the attacking players, there will always be goals in them."
