Taylor: Swansea can be top 10

Neil Taylor believes Swansea's squad is strong enough to secure a top-half finish this season and says the players must be ready to rotate as the club juggles European competition with domestic action.

Manager Michael Laudrup gave 18 players starts in the two Europa League games against Malmo.

Taylor believes the Swans' starting line-up in their opening Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday will not carry as much significance as usual.

"All over the pitch, there are so many players who could easily play," Taylor told the South Wales Evening Post.

"This is such a strong squad - I'd say it is up there in the top half of the Premier League because if a man comes out, you can be comfortable with whoever comes in.

"We've probably got another XI really. You saw in the two European games that Garry Monk didn't appear, and when has he ever let the club down when he's played?

"That shows how highly-rated our team should be at the moment. I think all the good signs are, and I honestly believe this season there will be massive rotation in the team.

"Rafael Benitez did it at Chelsea last year - in every single game you saw a different team.

"Some managers like working like that, especially when you're in Europe with the number of games. We've got a massive hurdle to overcome to go into the group stage, but we know then we will play at least six more games, so everyone will be needed."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
