Once again Swansea City’s Jefferson Montero was the Swans’ standout player of the weekend.
Last week, Garth Crooks named the pacey winger in his Barclays Premier League team of the week after his scintillating display against Chelsea. This week, he’s back in Garth Crooks’ team and he also finds himself in Harry Redknapp’s team after another faultless performance, this time against Newcastle United. Crooks said;
“On the opening day of the season we saw Montero put Branislav Ivanovic to the sword as Swansea earned an impressive 2-2 draw at Chelsea and this week it was Newcastle full-back Daryl Janmaat’s turn to get the treatment.
“Fortunately for Chelsea, Ivanovic managed to stay on the field, while Janmaat received his marching orders after just 41 minutes. Frankly, I was surprised Janmaat lasted that long, such was Montero’s wizardry in a comfortable win.”
