Swansea return to form

Swansea City are up to 12th in the Premier League after they beat Blackburn Rovers 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium. It was a return to form for Brendan Rodgers' side, who had lost their last four games.

Gylfi Sigurdsson continued his scoring run by giving Swansea the lead, and Nathan Dyer added a second before half-time. Scott Dann's own goal midway through the second half made the result certain.

The result means Swansea move past the 40 points mark that's thought to guarantee a side's Premier League survival. They are now all but mathematically certain of staying up. Blackburn though remain 19th, deep in relegation trouble.
