Jonny Evans hopes Swansea's continental style will benefit Manchester United on Sunday.

The progressive Welsh outfit developed a reputation for neat passing football, first under Roberto Martinez, then Brendan Rodgers before his departure for Liverpool in the summer. Michael Laudrup's arrival has led to subtle changes, but Swansea's core philosophy remains the same.

Evans has the utmost respect for the work Laudrup is doing in south Wales, but he feels United's vast European experience could work to their advantage, and he said: "We have got a history of being a counter-attacking team, but if you look at Swansea, they play like a European side. We are used to playing against European competition and this will be no different."
