The Denmark captain played the full 90 minutes in the win at Southampton the following week, and reckons he took it all in his stride.
"There was no extra motivation. I am always motivated when I am on the pitch," the 29-year-old said. "Did I speak to the manager about why I was taken off against Swansea? No. That's football and you get on with it.
"The clean sheet against Southampton was good - not only for me, but for the team. The result lifted everyone and now we're preparing to face Manchester United."
