Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup feels they're capable of winning the Europa League.

The Swans face Valencia in their group opener tonight.

Laudrup said: "I already know we can beat anyone in this competition. We play against teams like Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United. Teams at the same level as Valencia.

"So there is no reason why we cannot beat Valencia in a one-off game.

"If you play Valencia or Manchester United in 10 games, you know they will win more than us. But in one game, or two games in the group stage, it is possible.

"It is an away game against the favourite in the group and we can look forward to it with no pressure at all. We have nothing to lose and all to win."
