Swansea completed the rout ten minutes later by capitalizing on a QPR mistake. Michu pounced on a loose ball and moved it to substitute striker Scott Sinclair who finished cleanly with a left footed strike. It was a truly impressive performance from Swansea and one that QPR manager Mark Hughes will want to quickly forget. QPR’s lacked any sense of defensive identity and were repeatedly exploited by the counterattacking Swans. Michael Laudrup could not have dreamed of a better start to his Swansea career, as Swansea demonstrated the same style of enterprising and entertaining football that they enjoyed under Brendan Rodgers.
