Michael Laudrup thinks that Swansea City need four to six points if they are to stay in the top 10.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has insisted that his side must pick up more points if they are to finish in the top 10 of the Premier League.

Saturday afternoon's 0-0 draw at home to Southampton means that Swansea are level with West Ham United on 42 points and above Fulham in 11th by two points only.

"It means we will have to get the points elsewhere," Sky Sports News quotes Laudrup as saying. "I do not know how many points we will need to stay up there.

"West Ham won. At least we keep Southampton three points behind. I think we need four to six points.

"We have to find them somewhere and of course it will not be easy with some of the games coming up. However, that is life."

Swansea host Chelsea next Saturday.
