Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says his side put on a 'great performance' in beating Newcastle United at St James' Park.
Second half goals from Michu and Jonathan de Guzman sealed a 2-1 win and moved the Swans above Newcastle into the top half of the Premier League.
Swansea City missed a host of good chances before top scorer Michu finally broke the deadlock, although thats not something Laudrup is worried about.
– Michael Laudrup, Swansea City Manager
It was the best away performance this season, including QPR and Liverpool.
To come here and play Newcastle at a moment when we knew Newcastle really needed a win because they think they belong much higher than they are now after a home loss to West Ham a week ago, we knew it would be really difficult for us.
But we put on a great performance. We can always discuss what is a big goal chance, but without my Swansea glasses, I think I can say we created at least eight or nine quite big chances, and that's very difficult to do as an away team against a team like Newcastle's.
Swansea City now have a week off before welcoming former manager Brendan Rodgers back to the Liberty Stadium as the Swans take on Liverpool next Sunday.
That starts a hectic period of thee games in six days as Laudrup's side host high-flying West Brom on Wednesday and then travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on the Saturday.
