Swansea City cemented their position in the Premier League’s top ten last night (Tuesday) after they twice came from behind to beat struggling Wigan 3-2 at the DW Stadium.

With two games remaining, Michael Laudrup’s men sit ninth in the table - five points clear of West Ham in 11th - and look on course to finish in the top half of England’s top flight.

The Swans have already won the Carling Cup this season, qualifying for next year’s Europa League in the process, and Laudrup believes a top ten finish would cap a magnificent season for the South Wales side.

Talking to Wales Online, Laudrup said: “I really think it is possible to end our season in the top ten. Together with the trophy we have won, it could end up being a really amazing season.

“This season will be remembered in Swansea and in Wales for many years for the cup win, but for me to be in the top ten is very important. It is something you can build on for next season. For me there is a huge difference for us to get there.”

Goalkeeper Michel Vorm was stretchered off in the victory against the Latics after a nasty collision with teammate Ben Davies. Laudrup has confirmed the Dutchman has flown back to Wales for treatment and could be a doubt for the club’s run-in to the season.

"Michel seems OK," added Laudrup. "He was a little dizzy and was out for a small time but we will check him again tomorrow."

Swansea face a trip to champions Manchester United next week, with their final game of the season coming at home to Martin Jol's Fulham.
