Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup was delighted with their 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

Pablo Hernandez's low strike capped a good week for the Swans, who were narrowly defeated by Manchester City before dumping Liverpool out of the League Cup at Anfield.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup said: "I think it was a deserved point. It was, in many ways, a copy of the game we played last week against Manchester City.

"That time we deserved a point but didn't get anything, we did this time.

"They had a few goal chances, we had a couple, two or three half chances. There were not that many chances. A point for each was a fair result.

"Their goal was a bit lucky but we came back, got some fresh people on the pitch and really put them under pressure. I think we deserved it. It was a great goal by Pablo.

"It has been an important week for the club. we have had three different results the last week but three very good performances.

"It's nice to see that we can play like that against the big teams in our way of playing. That's important for us."
