After a flat first half, Swansea turned on the style with three goals of real quality.

Laudrup praised each goal in turn, but kept most of the plaudits for the third, a wonderful team move finished by Jonathan De Guzman.

"The third goal is my favourite," Laudrup said.

"It is everything we train for. Day after day, week after week. One and two touches, running off the ball, playing the second line.

"There is a great run and a great finish.

"Between Angel (Rangel), Danny (Graham) and Jonathan (De Guzman), it's great."

Laudrup also praised young full-back Ben Davies after his first senior goal gave the Swans the lead.

"I'm so happy for Ben because he is a young lad that has come in for an injured player. Everything that happens to him this season is a fairytale."

Swansea now sit in eighth place in the Premier League, one point off the top six.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
