Swansea manager full of praise for Leon Britton

Swansea City manager Francesco Guidolin has heaped praise on captain Leon Britton for his performance in the EFL Cup defeat to Manchester City.

The Swans lost the third-round tie 2-1 to City at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night but not before some solid displays from midfielder Britton and promising youngster Jay Fulton.

"I saw Leon play a very, very important game," Guidolin said after the game.

"I don't know if he can start again on Saturday because there's not a lot of time to rest. We will have to see.

"Jay Fulton also played well. I am happy for the whole team."

Swansea next meet City at home again in the Premier League on Saturday.
