Michael Laudrup to ring the changes for Aston Villa

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he will make changes to his side for Saturday's away trip to Aston Villa.

Laudrup, who made six changes for Thursday's defeat at Chelsea, says his side must get something out of the match.

"We have to get a positive result in the next game," said Laudrup.

"You can't play with the same team in just 48 hours. I have to pick two different sides."

Swansea's next five fixtures

28 Dec: Aston Villa (a) - Prem Lge

1 Jan: Man City (h) - Prem Lge

5 Jan: Man Utd (a) - FA Cup 3rd Rd

11 Jan: Man Utd (a) - Prem Lge

19 Jan: Tottenham (h) Prem Lge

Laudrup's men will be hoping to inflict more misery on Paul Lambert's Villa side who lost to lowly Crystal Palace on Thursday.

Swansea are only four points above the relegation zone in 11th, one point above Villa who are in 13th.

Midfielder Leon Britton sees it as an opportunity for the Swans to climb the table.

"It's a team in and around us in that section of the league," said Britton.

"We've got to go there and be confident. We have done it at Villa Park in previous seasons.

"So we'll go there, try and play well and try and get some points on the board, because there's a lot of games in a short space of time and you can climb up the table."
