Laudrup: First goal was key

Michael Laudrup felt there was very little between the two sides after seeing his Swansea team lose 2-0 to Arsenal.

The Gunners left the Liberty Stadium with three points thanks to second-half goals from Nacho Monreal and Gervinho but the Swansea boss was keen to praise both teams after the game.

"In the first half I think both teams played very well," Laudrup told Sky Sports.

"They had a couple of very good shots from distance with Oxlade-Chamberlain, I think, having both of them.

"We also had a couple of very good chances. It was good football with two teams who like to play the possession game doing it very well.

"Then I think both us and Arsenal did less well in the second half. There were no shots on target so I thought at that stage it would be a 0-0 game.

"But then the first goal obviously decided the game and it was Arsenal who scored it.

"In the second half I think we could have done more but I think neither of the teams did very much to make the goalkeepers work - maybe because both teams play very well in the midfield.

"In the end they won because they scored the first goal."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
