Michel Vorm has returned to training after missing the last seven games through injury, with Gerhard Tremmel proving to be more than a capable deputy.

In those seven games Swansea have remained unbeaten and Laudrup admits Tremmel's form has given him a tough decision to make on who should start in goal against Norwich this weekend.

"Gerhard has been getting better and better with every game," said Laudrup.

"Being the second goalkeeper is probably the most difficult position in the squad because if the first choice is not injured you never play.

"Gerhard's done really great, especially in the last two or three games. He is looking very secure and I'm happy for him.

"I won't say yes or no that I will keep him in. That's too simple. If someone has shown you during a long period to be number one and he is out for one, two or six games and comes back then it's difficult to say now you are not playing.

"Michel has shown that he is a number one but obviously as a player you can't stand still.

"You have to come in and show that you are the best because there is always competition."

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
