Benitez: Monk has a big future in the game

Garry Monk has been backed by Rafael Benitez to lead Swansea away from trouble in the bottom half of the Premier League.

They were a very difficult rival for us. They play good football and they are a very good team.

We have to give them credit because we had to work very hard to progress.

I'm surprised by Swansea's position in the Premier League standings but they are coming back with a new manager to the level they were before.

I give credit to Monk, I think he has a great future ahead of him.

Hernandez fancies an upset in Naples

Swansea midfielder Pablo Hernandez believes his team can spring a surprise and beat Napoli to progress to the last 16 of the Europa League.

The Welsh outfit takes on the Italian high-flyers in Naples, live on ITV4, with all to play for after a goalless draw in last week's opening leg at the Liberty stadium.

Napoli are favourites.

They play at home, we don't have an advantage heading into the game.

We were better in the first leg but they are favourites.

Napoli have played in the Champions League this season, they are a big team but we have a chance.

I think we can win this game.
