Sunderland vs Swansea Premier League 2015 Predictions Who Will Win 22nd Aug 2015

Sunderland have started their campaign on an extremely disappointing note. It has not just been the losses, but the way in which the losses occurred. Sunderland did not have a difficult start to their season, however they still managed to lose both the matches and get zero points out of six. Loss to Leicester on the opening weekend would have been accepted somehow, but a loss at home to a newly promoted side is bound to raise eye brows.

Swansea City on the other hand have started to an almost perfect start. With keeping the defending champions at bay and beating the Newcastle United at home last week, Swansea have been very effective. But the most impressive for them have been Montero. Gary Monk too has been impressed by the youngster and was delighted with his performances. HE said

“He’s done very well,” said Monk. “He’s come back very positive and is an example of the confidence and the team stepping up because of the competition [in the squad].

He’s been excellent and hopefully gets better. They all are contributing very well but we’re looking for improvement.”

However he also denied any chances of the player leaving Swansea for better prospects. He continued saying:

“It took me a long time to get this squad where we want it to be. We’ve taken a step forward and to let that hard work to go to waste would be criminal.

No-one is for sale, we’re looking forward to the season, the players are looking forward to going forward with Swansea and this is the squad I want.”

Sunderland manager on the other hand have been talking about the required shift in the mentality. He has been focussing on the fact about the importance of the mentality in football. He while taking to Sunderland Echo said,

“Football is a game played in the head, above all,” he told the Sunderland Echo. “I think that if you are always strong in the head, then you’re going to lose fewer games.

You must be constantly concentrating because at this level, it might be only one or two steps to get in a better position which makes the difference in defending a goal. That might be enough.

If one of my team-mates goes forward, then what do I have to do? If you communicate and concentrate, then you prevent the goals or the mistakes.”
