Garry Monk wants Swansea to build on their solid start to the Premier League campaign when Manchester United are the visitors to the Liberty Stadium on Super Sunday
Monk’s men completed their first league double over United last season with a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford on the opening day, before picking up all three points at home with a repeat score line.
Swansea have made a solid start to this campaign with a victory and two draws from their opening three matches and when asked whether his side worry about facing United anymore, Monk, speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the Super Sunday clash, said: “I wouldn’t say we don’t worry about Manchester United anymore it’s more of a case we just try and worry about ourselves.
“We want to put our best performance out on the pitch, especially against the bigger teams because they have that bit more quality. We have to concentrate on ourselves and make sure we put our best football on the pitch to try and impose ourselves on them.
“Of course it’s difficult because we play against very good teams,” Monk added. “Manchester United, for example, have an exceptional squad and are a real force in this league this year.
“We are looking forward to it. It’s a really important game for us. We’ve had a good start and we want to continue that going into the international break.”
Monk spent 10 years as a player at Swansea, featuring for the club when they played in League Two.
He made 226 appearances and captained the Welsh club as they made their way through the divisions, culminating in promotion to the Premier League through the play-offs at the end of the 2010/11 season.
Despite being proud of the club’s past achievements Monk insists he is fully focused on the present and helping Swansea keep on improving.
He said: “When you get some time to yourself you do reflect back and think about what a journey it’s been.
“It’s about trying to improve all the time and we are doing it at the moment. It’s important that we take that into this game and really put Swansea City in a good light.
