Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has heaped praise on Michael Laudrup's work with Swansea City.

Collymore wrote in the People: "Chelsea have come in for some stick for failing to break down Swansea.

"But rather than criticise Rafa Benitez’s men, I think we need to applaud their opponents for pulling off a game plan so impressively.

"Swansea always had great attacking intent, but now they also have a more stable side to their game.

"Michael Laudrup has clearly recognised that you can’t be gung-ho all the time because you will leave yourselves too exposed.

"And Swansea have fixed that by finding alternative ways of playing when they need to."
