Swansea winger Nathan Dyer does not see Saturday's clash with Everton's Leighton Baines as a chance to prove his internationals credentials to England boss Roy Hodgson.

Dyer, 24, impressed during Swansea's maiden Premier League campaign last term, and has started the new season in sensational form. The former Southampton man has relished the freedom manager Michael Laudrup has allowed his wide men this season, scoring twice and creating a host of chances.

The winger will get the chance to go up against Everton left-back Baines, but his only focus is on trying to secure three more points. He said: "I think it will give me an extra nudge to face a player of his quality, but when I go out I just enjoy playing, I don't think I need to do this or that for something else to happen, what comes my way, comes my way."
