Moyes: Swansea Are More of a Threat

Moyes: Swansea Are More of a Threat

Everton boss David Moyes believes Swansea City are more of an attacking threat this season under new manager Michael Laudrup.

Moyes, now in his 12th season at Goodison Park, believes the Swans are more of a threat now compared to last year under now Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

Using our comparison charts here, you can clearly see how much better the Swans have started their season compared to last. More goals and more wins, Laudrup has made some much-needed alterations - some tactically and some to the personnel - in particularly £2m bargain-buy Michu has helped give the Swans an extra attacking dimension.

Swansea City won't be as predictable in 2012/2013 as they might have been if Rodgers stayed. Laudrup's style is slightly different - particularly in how the wingers play, plus there's fewer passes being played amongst the defence in the first third of the pitch.

Moyes said:

'Swansea are a really good side and have done great but it's a different season, a new manager.

From what I've seen already I think he's slightly different to Brendan in how they play, I don't think you're going to see an identical Swansea to last year.

They look as if they can score goals, they've got a little bit more threat and they've shown that.'


Everton currently lie in 7th place, with 7 points - like the Swans. Also like the Swans, they have played Aston Villa away, whilst Laudrup's men lost 2-0, Everton won 3-1. Their most recent result was a 2-2 home draw against Newcastle United.
