Swansea manager Paul Clement had few words to say after his side lost against Everton in their trip to Goodison Park on Monday night.
Swansea had a good start to the game and broke the deadlock after 35 minutes thanks to Leroy Fer sneaking in at the back post and poking the ball past a helpless Jordan Pickford. This did very little to change the final outcome as Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Wayne Rooney, and Gylfi Sigurdsson all provides a goal for the Toffees to see them win the game 3-1.
This leaves Swansea in a lot of trouble at the foot of the table and have limited chances of climbing up the table before the new year.
As per 90 min, a gutted Clement told the Sky Sports cameras after the game: “I feel clearly disappointed again with the result up; until the penalty in the first half we played well, good control, decent chances, then we just had to manage the game well to get to half-time.”
Calvert-Lewin levelled for Everton when Rooney’s spot kick was saved and then rebounded past Lukasz Fabianski. Clement described the chance by saying “Then clearly a sloppy goal came to allow the throw to the feet of Rooney, the movement not tracked and a clumsy foul. It was a good save from the keeper, the defender should follow it. It landed nicely for Calvert-Lewin, but a good finish.”
Former Swansea man Sigurdsson scored the goal to put Everton in the lead and Clement went on to say “Second half we didn’t play so well. Having scored from a corner, we decide to take it short, had a hopeful ball into the box, we’re spread out, the play through us, and a good finish from Gylfi. It’s an avoidable goal.”
The manager also commented on his responsibility on the matter and he replied: “It’s a difficult job at any level, you want to win, you want to play well. It’s not something I’ve been used to me in my career, even here last year. As an assistant, I was losing one in ten. It’s the opposite. It’s not a nice experience. I’m learning a lot from it, I will keep fighting.”
