Momentum building, says Fonte

By SFC Media Tue 20 Sep Saints vs Swansea

José Fonte says Southampton need to continue their progress following their second win inside four days.

Saints recorded a 1-0 victory over Swansea City at St Mary’s, with Claude Puel’s men earning their first Premier League success of the season.

Following on from the 3-0 success over AC Sparta Praha, the consecutive clean sheet also pleased the skipper, who saw the team shut out their league opponents in Sunday's win.

“We needed one,” he said of the clean sheet. “We’re always going to create chances because we play good football and we just needed to get back to the clean sheets, and we did that today.”

Fonte’s old club Crystal Palace visit St Mary’s on Wednesday night in the EFL Cup, and the defender is targeting another success to keep the good feeling of the past week going.

“It’s massive and now we need to carry on the momentum,” he said. “We won in the Europa League and we have another game Wednesday so we just want to keep going now.”
