Michael Laudrup reflected on a “well-deserved” three points after watching his Swansea City side seal victory at Fulham.

After a goalless first half at Craven Cottage, the visitors took the lead in the 56th minute when Fulham defender Aaron Hughes turned the ball into his own net.

Scott Parker drew the hosts level shortly after with a curling shot but Jonjo Shelvey netted the winner 10 minutes from time when he fired home from the edge of the penalty area.

The win hoisted the Swans up to 10th place in the Premier League table, and Laudrup was delighted with his side’s impressive attacking display.

“Another win away is always difficult wherever you play and especially this time,” said Laudrup.

“It was so important for us today. Apart from that though we played very well and I think it was well deserved.

“In difficult moments, it is important to get points and we kept our way of playing. It’s not always easy when you have added pressure so I have to congratulate the team.

“We scored good goals and we had chances for more but even without looking through biased eyes, we deserved it.”
