We all know just how successful Swansea City were last year. Garry Monk guided the Swans to their highest placed Premier League finish of eighth, breaking all sorts of records along the way.
However, with the Swans’ recent success comes a whole load of optimism and expectation. For the first time since promotion to the Premier League, Swansea are not one of the favourites being tipped for relegation. Instead, Monk and his side have been backed to push on even further next season.
