Swansea City head to Hull City tonight as they attempt to get their Championship play-off push back on track.
The Swans have failed to win in their last four games as they have fallen down the table to 10th and are now six points off of the top six.
Cooper has been facing the press ahead of their trip to face Grant McCann’s Hull and here are the main talking points…
The Swansea manager first had to face questions about the injury suffered by midfielder George Byers which has ruled him out for the rest of the season.
The 23-year-old was carried off during last Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Derby County with an ankle injury.
When Cooper was asked about the injury to the midfielder (11:09), he said that it was ‘a pity for him and for us’.
The press conference followed the morning after Swansea’s 0-0 draw with QPR and it was inevitable that he would face questions about the stalemate.
Cooper seemed disappointed with the performance from his side and he mentioned that he will ‘demand more’ from them as they continue to chase the top six (11:16).

The supporters were left frustrated following the QPR stalemate and it was just the latest result in a long line that has seen their frustrations grow.
Having gone from being in the play-offs to now scrambling for enough points to push themselves back into the mix, fans are beginning to become more vocal with their disappointment and frustration at the side.
Cooper was quick to agree with the frustrations that the fans were showing by claiming that he ‘gets it’ (11:22).
They have stuck to their style across the past few weeks despite times being hard and other teams finding it easier to work them out as opposed to when Cooper first took over at The Liberty Stadium last summer.
Cooper was defensive of the style that his team have kept with across the season despite results not going their way as he states that their ‘intentions won’t change’ (11:36).
