Pablo Hernandez: Says Swansea's Premier League break will be vital

Swansea are without a game until September 16, due to international fixtures, but will then be facing trips to Liverpool, Valencia and Crystal Palace.

And Hernandez, while relishing the task of domestic and European fixtures, believes the break will prove beneficial for Michael Laudrup's men.

"It's going to be very busy for us with a lot of games, but after some recovery, we will be ready to play Liverpool, Valencia and Crystal Palace," said the 28-year-old.

"For us, it is important to do well in the Europa League as well as the Premier League, so we are looking forward to these games.

"And the win over West Brom has given us more confidence going into those matches.

"The last two weeks have been very hard. When you play in Europe, you have a lot of games to play and of course we had to play Manchester United and Tottenham in our first two league games."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
