Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers praised his team’s performance in the 3-0 home win against Leeds United.

Rodgers said he was proud of his players as they produced one of the best displays of the season to beat 6th placed Leeds in front of a record-breaking attendance at the Liberty Stadium.

‘I’m proud of the players. It was a wonderful performance and great result.

‘I like winning games but I also want to do it in style.

‘Some of our play and invention was fantastic against a very good side going forward.

‘Leeds have scored the most amount of goals in this league so to restrict them to just one shot on target showed our superiority in the game.

‘We started really well and I believe the best teams do that. They start quick and finish strong.

‘The first goal was terrific. It was a marvellous pass from goalkeeper Dorus de Vries and he is like an outfield player.

‘All our offensive players were excellent but Nathan Dyer produced a brilliant piece of skill for the second goal and the third one was a wonderful team goal. We are happy.

‘It’s three points and it’s what we want from a game. Three points, clean sheet and the fans go home happy.’
