Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the attacking intent that his side have shown this season in the Premier league has been the reason for the poor return of points from the away matches.

Premier league club usually defend a lot in the away matches and keep their attacking intent for the matches played at home.

Swansea, though, have been both different and a refreshing breath of air in the Premier league this season. They have not only played attacking football, but also beautiful football as well. Many would have expected Swansea to struggle in the Premier league this season, but wins against Arsenal and draws against Chelsea have proven that they are more than capable of handling life in the Premier league.

Still, Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has said that his side could have been in a much better position had they curbed their attacking instinct in the away matches. Swansea lost a number of matches in heavy manner away from home. Matches like the 4-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea early in the season could have been prevented with a better defensive organisation and Laura attacking intent according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

“It’s not frustrating, but it does make me more determined to get consistency. We’ve demonstrated enough times this season, we’ve gone to different to different places away from home and picked up really good results so it’s nothing to do with physicality, getting bullied or others things that are being mentioned. It is about consistency in our defending and at times we have not done that, it’s as simple as that,” Brendan Rodgers said ahead of the match with Wigan athletic. This crucial match will go along with into deciding the future of Swansea, who are in the 14th position in the table, in the Premier league.
