Michael Laudrup thinks that a combination of confidence and a regular starting spot are allowing Wayne Routledge to play his best football for Swansea City.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has declared that the sparkling form of Wayne Routledge has been a pleasant surprise so far this season.

The 27-year-old has played in every Premier League game for Swansea this term, scoring twice and impressing in an advanced wide position.

Laudrup believes that a sustained run in the Swansea first team has helped Routledge reach his potential.

He told Wales Online: "Wayne has not been a regular starter for a long time, he is now and that's important.

"I heard when I arrived here that he only scored one goal in 100 games, and he has already scored double that this season.

"Maybe he has been a big surprise for those watching on, but we are giving him confidence and we know he has a lot of quality."

The Swans secured their first league win since August last weekend with a 2-1 success over Wigan Athletic.
