In the Premier league 16th round The Swans at their Liberty Stadium will host Norwich City.Both teams enjoying a good series of results,in which they are both undefeated in the last six rounds,so the Welsh Swansea currently occupies excellent seventh place and the Canaries 12th place,having just four points less.
All this tell us that we can expect a great match here,and the Swans will try for certain to take all three points here,and get a little revenge,since the last season Norwich City has celebrated in their both mutual encounters.
The Welsh Swansea is flying high currently,and the last round huge victory over Gunners at Emirates,boost a team morale high.Once again,their striker Michu was the key player of the match,who has scored two late goals for 2-0 victory.Except him,a solid defense was another good thing,for which the Swans coach Laudrup hopes they can repeat and in this match also.
Swansea player,Davies insists that the visitors will not be under-estimated..
`The confidence is very high in the group at the moment and that’s just down to the way we’re playing,” he said.
“Some of the results we’ve got have been a massive boost, especially after beating West Brom and Arsenal, people are going to start raising their expectations.
“But as a group, our aim is still to reach 40 points and to stay in the league. The earlier we reach that, the further we can try to progress.
“I think it will be a difficult game against Norwich.
“We won’t be taking it lightly and, as long as we can keep it solid at the back, I think we’ve got the quality up front to get goals.”
Norwich coach Hughton is aware that a tough match expects his team ..
“There was a very good platform for Laudrup when he took over but he has tweaked the formation and brought in some very good players,” Hughton told a press conference.
“I have been very impressed, not just with the run they are on, but also with the style they are playing which is an exciting brand of football, as well as anybody in this division.
“There have been no fluke results, they have earned them. It is not about one player, it is about the quality they have got.
“At this moment they are doing very well and all look real good [summer] purchases, particularly Michu, who is scoring the goals.
“We will have to make sure we are as resilient as possible but also have a threat ourselves.”
