Jack talks up his first win as a Swan.

Swansea midfielder Jack Cork reflects on his first win with Gary Monk's side.

The English midfielder praised their historic win over Manchester United on Saturday, a tie which saw the South Wales club beat Louis van Gaal's team 2-1, after going a goal down in the 28th minute.

Ander Herrera scored the opener but Ki Sung-yueng and Bafétimbi Gomis hit back with a goal each to give United their second defeat in 20 games, sending the Reds down to fourth position in the Premier League table.

However. Cork who sealed his first win with the club since joining from Southampton was delighted with Swansea City's first league double over the Red Devils.

“I wasn’t a part of the club when we won at Old Trafford on the opening day, but I’m sure this feels as good – maybe even better – than that win for the lads,” said the 25-year-old, who made his third consecutive start for Gary Monk’s side.

“It’s my first win since I’ve arrived and it’s a great feeling.

“We played some good football in the first half and it was crucial to equalise soon after they took the lead.

“If we had gone in trailing at half-time it would have been difficult, but we showed tremendous character.

“We have some great players in our squad and although we were on the back foot at times we kept a good shape. We were tight as a unit and made it hard for them to get through.

“That gave us the opportunity to be in a position where we could go on and win the game, and we were all delighted to hear the final whistle.

“Keeping my place in this team will be a massive challenge because there’s so much quality in the squad.

“I want to play more and see how far we can go this season. We have a very strong squad and results like this show that we can beat the best in the division.”
