Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says his players should be pleased with their performance against Manchester City despite the 3-0 scoreline.

Swansea drop to 13th in the Premier League table and title-chasers Manchester City move to third as they maintained their 100 per cent home record.

Despite an early goal from Alvaro Negredo, Swansea responded well and went on to dominate the remainder of the first half.

Swansea had a chances to equalise before the break but they were denied by City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.

Laudrup said:

"I think it is a little strange to stand up here after a game you lost 3-0 and feel we did many things right. But I think we did well until the third goal, and after that the game was over.

Of course I am not happy we lost 3-0 but on the other hand I am not really disappointed because I think the players did what they could, what they should."
