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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
