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.

"It was very important for us to win (against West Brom) because we started the season with two losses.

"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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
