Michael Laudrup felt Swansea City deserved maximum points after being held to a draw at Aston Villa.

Paul Lambert’s men had taken a first-half lead after England striker Gabriel Agbonlahor slotted past Gerhard Tremmel in the ninth minute.

We got a point but I think we lost two

11th-placed Swansea cancelled out Agbonlahor’s opener courtesy of Roland Lamah’s header nine minutes before half-time at Villa Park.

And Swansea manager Laudrup felt his side deserved three points from their performance after dominating possession in the second half.

“We got a point but I think we lost two. In the first half we created the chances,” Laudrup told BBC Sport.

“We made it a little difficult for ourselves giving away the early goal but came back and dominated completely.”

He added: “In the second half we had the ball but didn’t create that much. Sometimes possession can give you an idea how the game has been.

“The possession in the first half was followed up by chances and good play and we should have scored more than once.”
