VORM: I JUST SAW IT TOO LATE
MICHEL Vorm made no excuses for Swansea City's first loss of the season at Aston Villa — and admitted responsibility for his part in Villa's opening goal.
The Dutchman appeared to dive beyond Matthew Lowton's swerving 20-yard volley after 16 minutes, the ball evading his grasp and flying into the net.
That gave Villa a 1-0 lead and, although Swansea had dominated earlier, Paul Lambert's side were ultimately comfortable 2-0 winners.
Vorm was mystified by the flight of Lowton's shot and, although the balls used in the Premier League this season have been scrutinised, Swansea's goalkeeper admits it was merely human error which led to the opening goal.

"It swerved a bit and I saw it a bit late," he said. "I was already moving to my right as well, and I couldn't make up so it was a bit unlucky.
"They make the balls not to please the goalkeeper but to please the players who shoot a lot.
"It's something you have to deal with and you see a lot of times it is hard for the goalkeepers to keep the ball in their hands.
"There are a lot of good players with a good shot and if the ball is wobbling it's not easy.
"But in the Premier League we have good goalkeepers and we have to deal with it.
"It's not really about the ball, I like the ball.
"If you look throughout the season you will see some goals that go in that you think are because of the ball — but I am not going to blame the ball."
