Swansea displayed textbook counter-attacking football in the game and Laudrup has said that the performance was better than he could have hoped.
"A 5-0 away game against a difficult opponent? I couldn't even dream about that," Laudrup told Sky Sports News. "It was a good start, a good goal from Michu.
"They could have equalised but then we hit the crossbar twice so we could have been 3-0 up [at half-time].
"In the second half we were very well organised [with] good counter attacks [and] great goals."
Laudrup's summer signing Michu scored twice in the game.
