Swansea victory was deserved, says Laudrup

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has said that his side’s 3-0 victory over Newcastle United on Wednesday evening was well deserved, BBC Sport has reported.

Despite being forced to play with no recognised striker after Alvaro Vazquez sustained an injury in the first half, Swansea claimed a convincing win over their in-form visitors thanks to substitute Nathan Dyer, a Mathieu Debuchy own goal and Jonjo Shelvey’s late curling shot from outside the penalty area.


Vazquez was deputising for the injured duo of Wilfried Bony and Miguel Michu, but the Dutchman could return for Monday evening’s game against fellow mid-table side Hull City.


The result took the Swans up to 11th in the Premier League table, and afterwards Laudrup said: "They had a couple of chances but it was a deserved result for us. I am really happy for the players because we needed this win. "It is an important win against a very good side who came in on the back of four consecutive wins in the Premier League.


"They were a team with a lot of confidence, but even so we played a good game and won 3-0. We scored the first goal, which was very important for us, in a crucial moment before half-time, after we had lost our third striker out of three.


"Playing without strikers but with two offensive midfielders - false nines or whatever you call them - we scored that goal. It's bad luck, but when you lose players in the same position, you cannot really do anything."
