It was a game with few chances, and in truth, it could have gone either way. However, the Swans put in an excellent defensive display, led by the skipper Ashely Williams, and gained a good point against a strong Everton side.

Cork, who put in yet another faultless performance in the heart of the Swansea midfield, revealed how the Swans can adapt to the physical side of things and admitted that they are up for any battle that may lie ahead. Speaking after the game, the 26-year-old said;

“There were a few tackles flying about and, it didn’t get nasty, but it was a proper game at times. It was a good game in which everyone was fighting to get the three points.

“The two teams maybe cancelled each other out in the end. I think we’ve shown, since I’ve been here, that our game is about mixing it up. We can adapt to different situations and matches. We did that on Saturday. We wanted to show that we’re not a soft touch.”

The point moves Garry Monk’s side up to seventh in the Premier League table, after securing two wins, three draws and suffering just one defeat from their opening six outings.
