Michael Laudrup calls for Swansea City response

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says that his team need to respond positively against Stoke City following defeat to Cardiff City last Sunday.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has called on his team to issue a positive response against Stoke City following last weekend's defeat to bitter rivals Cardiff City.

The Potters make the trip to the Liberty Stadium looking for their first win in seven games, but the Dane is not taking Mark Hughes's men lightly.

"This is our first league game since last Sunday's derby defeat and there are a lot of ingredients that make it one we really want to win, especially as we are at home," the 49-year-old told reporters.

"But just because we are at home doesn't mean we will win against Stoke. To think like that would be arrogant – and I am not arrogant.

"Stoke have been in the Premier League for many years, while this is just our third season. It will be another tough game. The league is tight this year and we have already seen a lot of surprises."

The Swans drew 1-1 with Kuban Krasnodar in their midweek Europa League fixture in Russia.
