Laudrup revels in Swans' great week

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup reflected on a "great week" after his hard-working side continued their recent momentum with a creditable draw at Everton.

The Swans followed up their stunning Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg win over Chelsea – which in turn came after holding Arsenal in the FA Cup – by frustrating the Toffees in a goalless clash at Goodison Park. It extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to seven matches and put them in good heart for their replay against the Gunners on Wednesday.

"It has been a little bit more than a good week – it has been a great week," said Laudrup. "Three very difficult games, different games, and I think three great performances. To come here and play Everton in such a difficult away game, after playing in midweek against Chelsea, and to get a point is a great result."

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque was in the crowd to run the rule over the four Spaniards in the Swans side – in-form striker Michu had a quiet game but still went the closest to scoring.

Everton manager David Moyes was rueful: "We are a bit frustrated but Swansea did a good job on Chelsea, not dissimilar [to this]".
