It was a very good result because Swansea are a strong team here at home and also away. I think the way we won today is very important for us.
We had a very good first half. The goal at the end of the first half was offside and they grew with that goal, but the team at the start of the second half continued trying to score the second goal.
We scored the second and the third and it was a pity they got the last goal because 3-2 was not the difference between the two teams, whilst repeating that we were playing against a very good team.
