Michael Laudrup: Swansea boss has warned against complacency in the Europa Leagu

Expectations are high following Swansea's impressive 3-0 win at Valencia in their opening Group A fixture, but Laudrup is expecting a tough test against the Swiss side.

"I've seen their game against Kuban Krasnodar and against Spartak Moscow in the play-off," Laudrup said.

"They don't have the big stars but they really work hard. They were underdogs against Spartak, a side who have played in the Champions League.

"They drew in Switzerland and were 1-0 down after 51 seconds in the second leg and were then outplayed for 20 minutes.

"But suddenly they went 3-1 up, so it shows they have a lot character, it will be a difficult game and a game where even if we're doing well we have to keep an eye on the spirit in their squad.

"They play differently than us, a little more direct at times, but they have really done well against the Russians so I want to repeat we have to be careful.

"We are at home, we have to try and control the game, but be aware of counter-attacks and their spirit."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
