Chris Hughton: Swansea standing in way of a 10-game unbeaten streak

The Canaries have stormed up the Premier League table since October with wins over Arsenal and Manchester United, and they are also in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

They now sit in a relatively comfortable 12th place but Swansea, who came up with them from the Championship two seasons ago, have impressed under Michael Laudrup and could move into the top six with victory at the Liberty Stadium.

"There was a very good platform for Laudrup when he took over, but he has tweaked the formation and brought in some very good players," Hughton said.

"I have been very impressed, not just with the run they are on, but also with the style they are playing which is an exciting brand of football, as well as anybody in this division.

"There have been no fluke results, they have earned them. It is not about one player, it is about the quality they have got.

"At this moment they are doing very well and all look real good (summer) purchases, particularly Michu, who is scoring the goals.

"We will have to make sure we are as resilient as possible, but also have a threat ourselves.

"Everybody wants to play at the moment, I haven't got anybody who feels like they want a rest or a player we particularly want to rest. The decisions will be solely based on a particular team for a game.

"We have got a competitive squad at the moment and certainly have no fear about making any changes because any changes I did make would be because I felt it would make the team as equally strong."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
