Fabianski: We need to start improving

Swansea - Lukasz Fabianski says he hopes the 3-1 loss to Stoke in their Premier League clash on Monday will serve as a "wake-up call" to Swansea.

The Swans suffered the worst possible start at the Bet365 Stadium as Wilfried Bony opened the scoring after just three minutes.

Wayne Routledge levelled matters five minutes later but despite getting stronger as the tie wore on, an Alfie Mawson own-goal ten minutes into the second-half, ahead of a Bony second in the 73rd minute, sealed the result.

The loss left Bob Bradley's side just three points clear of Sunderland at the bottom of the standings, and seven adrift of Stoke, in 12th spot.

"I think we have decent players, we are a decent group," said Fabianski.

"We have shown many times in the past that we can play good football and get some really good results.

"Hopefully this will be a wake-up call, to show us that we need to start improving and getting points."

The former Arsenal goalkeeper says that "hard work" is the only substitute in order to get results. 

"All we have to do is focus on the daily work. We have to work hard, be at our best and prepare ourselves in the best way possible.

"We have to keep believing, keep the faith, and work hard to try to put a run together. 

"That's the only thing we can do, we need to keep our heads down and continue to work hard."

Up next for Swansea is the visit of Manchester United to the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 17:00 (SA time).
