Momentum was key, says Jono
29th March 2014
Jonathan de Guzman praised his team-mates as they carried on from where they left off in midweek to claim a crucial three points against Norwich.
The Swans secured a 3-0 win at the Liberty to move themselves on to 33 points - seven points clear of the relegation zone.
The home side dominated the opening period and deservedly took the lead when de Guzman rifled a low shot into the bottom corner.
The Dutch midfielder doubled Swansea's lead before the break following wonderful build-up play from Wilfried Bony, while Wayne Routledge grabbed a third in the second half.
The win moved the Swans up to 13th in the Premier League table following four points in a week - and de Guzman was delighted with the way the squad continued the feel-good factor following the draw against Arsenal.
"It was a very important win," he said. "We have been longing for those points for a few weeks now, and we brought the momentum and motivation from the Arsenal game in midweek.
"We did very well, especially getting the two goals in the first half. In the last couple of home games we've let it slip away in the second period, but we moved the ball well and we're very happy.
"We're very confident, we've got a good squad here with quality players and we are working hard week in, week out to get results."
De Guzman, like against Arsenal, started on the right hand side of midfield as the home side took the game to Norwich.
The hosts - and de Guzman - were rewarded as the on-loan midfielder grabbed his sixth and seventh goals of the campaign against the Canaries.
And with the World Cup looming large, he has his sights firmly set on a summer in Brazil
"I'm enjoying it so far," he said. "And of course it (the World Cup) is in the back of my mind.
"We've got six games left, six more for myself and I know I just need to keep working hard and hopefully get that call."
