Gylfi Sigurdsson praises Swans' flying winners
31st August 2014
Gylfi Sigurdsson hailed wing wizards Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge for their star showings as the Swans ran out 3-0 victors over West Brom at the Liberty Stadium.
Both Dyer and Routledge were on the scoresheet as Garry Monk's side maintained their 100 per cent start to the Barclays Premier League campaign with a well deserved win over the Baggies.
After Dyer put the Swans in front, just under 90 seconds into proceedings, when he rounded West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster before hitting home, Routledge added a second with a stunning volley midway through the first period.
In the 71st minute, having latched on to another superbly weighted through ball by Sigurdsson, Dyer wrapped up the win with his third goal of the season.
And the Icelandic midfielder praised Swansea's wing duo for their impact on Monk's men's flying start to the season.
"It's fantastic," declared the 24-year-old. "Obviously it was a very important win at Old Trafford, and we've managed to back it up with two wins at home, so it's a great start for us.
"The wingers make some great movement, which makes it easy for us midfielders to pick them out.
"As you saw today, Nathan finished two of the chances very well and Wayne got one as well.
"Wayne's goal is up there with the best. Most people would've taken a touch there, but he somehow jumped up and got some power behind it. It was a fantastic goal.
"Overall, the boys are doing well. And it's our job to create or score goals, as well defend and keep clean sheets."
