Michu was back amongst the goals for Swansea this weekend, scoring two as Swansea ran out 4-1 winners against struggling QPR. 

Angel Rangel and Pablo Hernandez were also on target as the South Wales outfit romped to a comprehensive victory and kept themselves in contention for a Europa League berth.

On the other hand, it proved to be another miserable outing for the Hoops who still find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table. Harry Redknapp’s men have 17 points from their 26 matches and are six points away from safety.

Laudrup, who took over at the Liberty Stadium from Brendan Rodgers, was all praise for the way his side responded to their 1-0 defeat to West Ham United in their previous game.

The 48-year-old manager expressed his delight at seeing the team return to goalscoring ways after having failed to find the back of the net in the last two fixtures.

"The overall performance was very good," he said. "We were excellent in the first half, scored two goals, but then it became more open when they scored.

"I was pleased we scored four goals after two league games without scoring, and the first half was similar to when we played West Brom.

"We had a bit of luck with the first couple of goals but overall it was a great performance and I’m delighted with the win."

Michu, signed by Swansea in the summer window for a mere £2m, ended his recent goal drought with a double, taking his tally of league goals to 16 for the season.

And Laudrup took time out to praise the Spanish sensation for hitting top gear once more, and praised his star man for his versatility.

"He isn't even really a centre forward," added Laudrup. "He is an offensive midfielder who can also play as a striker and is someone who can score goals.

"If he goes four or five games without a goal it doesn't really matter. Even when he isn't getting the chances he still does plenty of other work for the team."

The win lifted Swansea to 7th in the Premier League’s pecking order. They will next play Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
