Laudrup can't fault Swansea players in Arsenal defeat

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup couldn't criticise their performance in defeat to Arsenal.

Swansea had threatened during a bright start, with Angel Rangel and Michu failing to take presentable chances, before Arsenal took a grip on the game.

But Laudrup felt a draw would have been a fair result.

He said: "I think in the first half we saw some good football from both sides.

"Our philosophies are similar and they had a couple of chances with Chamberlain hitting the bar, we had some good chances too.

"In the second half there was less good football. There was a lot of play in midfield but no shots on target.

"I thought it would be 0-0, but when things are like that the first goal will decide the game and that is what happened, it was a strange goal, but it was a goal and that decided the game."
