Laudrup Calls For His Side's Best At Newcastle

Laudrup Calls For His Side's Best At Newcastle

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says his side need to be at their best if they want to get a good result at Newcastle United on Saturday.

The Swans are in much need of a win after drawing 2 and losing 1 in ther last three - and they haven't experienced an away since the opening day of the season.

Laudrup believes if his team play their best they could get a point or three, but he's fully aware of the threat that the Magpies pose this weekend:

'If we are at our best we could get three points or just one, but there are loads of factors that can effect this game.

'If they are at their best they are a team who can cause us loads of problems, they have some physical players but also the likes of Yohan Cabaye and Ben Arfa, who have lots of quality, and Demba Ba who is in a great moment in front of goal.

'At our best we can get something from this game but if they are at their best they can make us suffer.'


Laudrup is unfortunate to lose another player due to injury this week - Ki Sung Yeung, but he's looking for the replacements to do a good job:

'When players are playing well it is always a loss when they are injured, Ki has performed very well in the last few games,'

'But you can not play with 11 or 12 players throughout the entire season so other players have to be prepared to come back in.

'Sometimes the players who are not playing every week are more important for a manager than those who are playing all the time.

'They have to keep the level of training up and then ready to come in when he is needed.'
