Swansea 3-0 Newcastle: 'Comfortable' win delights Laudrup

Michael Laudrup says his Swansea players "needed" their 3-0 win over Newcastle following two successive defeats.

The Swans were coming off the back of defeats to Valencia and Manchester City, and Laudrup is delighted with the way his team "controlled the game", and says scoring just before half time "made a huge difference" to the outcome of the match.

Swansea have not lost this season when scoring first, picking up five wins and a draw.
