'Perfect preparation' pleases Laudrup

Published Add your comment

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup hailed the 3-1 victory over Stoke as the "perfect preparation" for Wednesday's Capital One Cup semi-final meeting with Chelsea.

The Swans emerged comfortable winners thanks to a fine second-half performance following a turgid first half at the Liberty Stadium. The win tees Swansea up nicely for their second leg with Rafael Benitez's side and they head into the game with a 2-0 advantage as they seek a first appearance at a major Wembley final.

Laudrup said: "Winning is always the perfect preparation, winning and no injuries. I think it was a very good performance, we dominated from the first minute."
