Swansea manager Michael Laudrup felt that his side's third goal in the 3-1 win over Stoke City summed up all that he is trying to achieve at the club.

Jonathan De Guzman: Ended a wonderful team move to give Swansea 3-0 lead

After a flat first half, Swansea turned on the style with three goals of real quality.

Laudrup praised each goal in turn, but kept most of the plaudits for the third, a wonderful team move finished by Jonathan De Guzman.

"The third goal is my favourite," Laudrup said.

"It is everything we train for. Day after day, week after week. One and two touches, running off the ball, playing the second line.

"There is a great run and a great finish.

"Between Angel (Rangel), Danny (Graham) and Jonathan (De Guzman), it's great."

Laudrup also praised young full-back Ben Davies after his first senior goal gave the Swans the lead.

"I'm so happy for Ben because he is a young lad that has come in for an injured player. Everything that happens to him this season is a fairytale."

Swansea now sit in eighth place in the Premier League, one point off the top six.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
