Jonathan de Guzman believes the performance at Manchester City on Saturday shows that the team has plenty of potential in the Premier League.
The Swansea City loanee produced a confident performance in midfield along with Ki Sung-yeung but the team left the Etihad Stadium rather disappointed that they didn't a point that they deserved against the title holders.
Despite suffering a defeat, de Guzman believes the Swans can do well in the top flight if they can maintain that high level of performance. He told Sky Sports:
'We showed everyone that we can play football, it wasn't just a good couple of weeks at the beginning of the season,'
'If we continue like this, I think we can do very well in the league. If we can bring the same attitude to other matches and through the whole season, we'll go very far as a team.
'This is a disappointing result for us. I thought we could have at least got a point, but that's football.
'We're developing into a unit. It takes a bit of time with a new manager and this is only our second year in the Premier League.
'There's a lot of pressure in the second year. In the first year no-one really looked at Swansea but they set a high standard finishing 11th and doing a very good job. Now teams are watching out for us.
'There's a good feeling in the squad at the moment. In training everyone pushes each other and it's difficult for the manager to pick his best 11.'
