Laudrup content as Swansea hold Man Utd

Michael Laudrup was pleased his Swansea City side managed to grab a point at home against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Swans dropped to 11th on the table because of the 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium but the outcome was a pleasing one for Laudrup who admits United had the better of the scoring opportunities.

"I am pleased with a good performance. They started a bit better than us, scored the goal and had five to 10-minute period where they could have scored a second which would have made it difficult," he said after Michu cancelled out Patrice Evra's opener.

"We equalised and I thought first half was an equal contest, in the second half it was a more open game.

"They had more of the ball and created more chances but I felt it could have gone either way.

"They had more chances but that is normal when playing a side who are top of the table.

"It is a great point for the club and the players. I heard last season there was too much respect shown for United, that was not the case today."
