We must learn from losses - Britton

Published Add your comment

Leon Britton believes Swansea are being paid a big compliment by sides that look to disrupt their style of play, but that they need to figure out how to counteract such measures.

Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Everton, courtesy of goals from Leighton Baines and Nikica Jelavic, followed a similar pattern to Norwich's 3-2 win at the Liberty Stadium last month, where a tight, disciplined pressing performance from the visitors denied the Swans the opportunity to build their play from the back.

"It shows how far we have come," the 29-year-old said. "I think at the beginning of the season teams coming down here, I wouldn't say they weren't bothered about how we played, but they concentrated on what they wanted to do. Now teams coming down know we pass the ball well and are looking for ways to stop that."
