Swansea City manager Garry Monk has warned his players about the dangers posed by Sunderland’s Stadium of Light.
“Sunderland can be a very tricky place to go with their crowd backing them,” said the Swansea manager.
“If they get a good start the crowd will be up, so it’s important we start the game well.
“We have to go there with confidence and try to impose ourselves on them.
“We are very aware of the quality they have got, so we have to start well and try to deal with what will be difficult circumstances.”
