Swansea form pleases manager Laudrup

Michael Laudrup was thrilled with his Swansea City team as they defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

A very early goal from Michu kicked things off well for the Swans before Nathan Dyer added a second just minutes into the second half.

The victory comes just days after the Welsh club beat Valencia 3-0 in the Europa League, following Monday night's 2-2 draw with Liverpool, with all three results pleasing Laudrup.

"It has been a fantastic week," Laudrup said. "Before the start, I thought this particularly would be the most difficult game because it was on the back of Liverpool and Valencia.

"This was the third game in only six days, with the travelling and all that. You have to play an away game here against a different type of football, more direct.

"I thought this was going to be the most difficult game, so I am really pleased with what the players did today.

"It always helps when you score in the first minute, but even so you have to play over 90 minutes.

"I thought we really dominated the game from the first to the last second.

"The only thing is, we should have scored more goals because we had the chances to score five or six like we had on Thursday, but it is of course difficult not to be pleased when you win 3-0 and 2-0 in just three days."
