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."
