Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers praises his team's display after their 1-0 win over Manchester City.

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers was delighted with his team's display after a 1-0 win over Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium.

Luke Moore's late goal earned the Welsh side their third win in six games and also displaced City at the top of the Premier League table.

"[Manchester City] have gone away to Tottenham and Manchester United and got great victories, so we knew this was going to be an incredibly tough game for us because of the level," Rodgers told Sky Sports News.

"But really the focus is very much on our own game because we feel like if we can pass the ball and have the courage to play, we will hurt teams and that is something that we've proved over the last couple of seasons.

"Even against the best teams we believe that we can cause problems. Today was a great victory and a terrific goal to win the game."

The Swans have moved up to 11th in the table with the win.
