Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has told his players that the strength of the Manchester United side they faced on Saturday is a compliment to how well they have started their maiden Barclays Premier League campaign.

Sir Alex Ferguson picked a strong side for United's first visit to the Liberty Stadium, with Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Nani, Wayne Rooney, Patrice Evra and Michael Carrick all handed starting roles in their 1-0 victory.

"I told the players the biggest compliment you can get is that they put their most hard working team out there," he said. "You know when Sir Alex Ferguson puts the likes of Park, Rooney, Ferdinand and Vidic out there that they mean business, he puts them in the big games."
