Laudrup admits to Swansea issues following Tottenham loss

Swansea City dropped to 15th on the Premier League table when they were beaten 3-1 at home by Tottenham on Sunday.

An own-goal from Chico Flores and a brace from Emmanuel Adebayor had the visitors three goals ahead before Wilfried Bony pulled one back late for the Swans.

The defeat was their fifth in their past six in the Premier League which stretched their winless run to eight, dating back to December 4, leaving manager Michael Laudrup to believe that there are some problems within the side at the moment.

"I thought we were the better side for half-an-hour," he told Sky Sports.

"Again, we showed great attitude, we put them under pressure and had a couple of good chances. It was a fantastic strike from Bony and then the first time they have a shot on target, they scored.

"There was a lot of shape for five or 10 minutes but then again, that's something that happens when you're a team that's struggling a bit."

He added: "It's not our moment and things like that happen. I think we have to admit that we have some problems right now - for some time, we haven't won.

"But on the other hand, we to continue like this. I think the only thing we need is a win in the league and now we have to move on."
