Swansea boss Michael Laudrup hit out at the officials following his side's 1-0 defeat at Tottenham this afternoon.

There was a major flashpoint towards the end of the game when Swansea forward Michu was floored following an aerial challenge with Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Referee Mike Dean allowed play to continue with Michu lying prone inside the Spurs area as Andros Townsend almost scored a second for the hosts, with both benches arguing on the touchline.

Laudrup conceded that the challenge was a fair one, but said: "Fortunately he is OK. When I saw it I thought 'Oh hell, he is unconscious, you can't fake a reaction like that' - it isn't like when someone kicks you, this is completely different."
