Swans defender keeping the faith

Swansea have what it takes to pick up points with their stylish brand of football, according to defender Neil Taylor.

The Swans were narrowly defeated 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, which stretched their goalless run to four league outings, and left the south Wales side in the relegation zone.

Brendan Rodgers' side have certainly gained plenty of admirers for their slick passing football and, although it is not yielding the results required just yet, Taylor insists the players have faith in their manager's philosophy.

"We can get out of this playing the way we do," said the Wales international.

"I don't think there should be any other way, as nobody can say it is not working for us.

"We are cutting teams open and defensively we're looking solid enough.

"We're doing really well, I don't think it is a situation where people can say we're really struggling.

"We're putting in good performances. It is just a case of carrying on and hoping we get the result. And as soon as those results start to change, it can only be good for us."


Meanwhile, Taylor says the Swans must take a collective responsibility as they look to end their barren run in front of goal, with the Barclays Premier League newcomers yet to have found the net in the top-flight.

"Collectively as a team we need to get a goal whether it is from the centre-halves from a corner or the full-backs," added the 22-year-old.

"The pressure shouldn't just be on one man but the whole team.

"We put on a good performance and we can take heart from it, especially at a top-five club like Arsenal. We had our chances and held our own.

"We are creating chances, when we're not creating chances that's when we'll get worried. But we need to dust ourselves off and go again. One will go in soon."
