Monk: 'Today showed exactly what we're about'

Arsenal dominated the game at the Emirates Stadium and created a number of excellent chances in the second half but it was the visitors who grabbed a late winner after Bafetimbi Gomis's 85th-minute header was ruled to have crossed the line by the goal decision system.

The visitors held on through the four minutes of stoppage time - despite being put under pressure by Arsenal - for their third successive win, one which leaves them just one point behind seventh-placed Southampton with two matches remaining.

Seventh place would be enough for Europa League qualification for Swansea should Arsenal beat Aston Villa in the FA Cup final on May 30.

Swans boss Monk said he was not focusing on Europe yet, but would see how the last two games of the season pan out.

I don't focus on that. What will be will be and we'll just keep pushing.

I said that before the the game, over the weekend, the good thing about playing on Monday night was that we saw the results and that the places above us had opened up with the results, so why shouldn't we be pushing for that? Why shouldn't we be pushing those teams above and go on the hunt for them.

I think today showed exactly what we're about and how we think about each game and we'll take the next two games and whether that takes us, then great... if not we'll have to assess again in the summer.

– Garry Monk, Swansea Manager

Swansea City full back Kyle Naughton will miss the rest of the season after damaging ankle ligaments during his side's 3-1 win over Hull on Saturday.

Naughton, who joined the Swans in January from Tottenham Hotspur, was carried off in the second half after David Meyler's tackle which saw the Hull player sent off by referee Andrew Marriner.

Initial investigations ruled out a break but further scans have show significant ligament damage which will keep Naughton out for around six weeks.

The England Under-21 International was hurt during their 1-0 victory over the Czech Republic last Friday, in which he scored their only goal.

A spokesman for Swansea City confirmed the 22-year-old is now expected to be out for between four and six weeks.

So far Carroll has made 18 appearances for the Swans, after joining them last summer on a season-long loan.

Elsewhere it's understood manager Garry Monk is awaiting results of a scan on winger Jefferson Montero, who reportedly suffered a muscle strain last weekend.

The Swans continue their Premier League campaign on Saturday, when they host Hull City.
