Swansea - Swansea continued their dream start to the English Premier League season with an impressive 3-0 demolition of West Ham United at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

Michael Laudrup's side thrashed QPR 5-0 at Loftus Road last weekend and they turned on the style again to go top of the English top-flight for the first time in 30 years thanks to goals from Angel Rangel, Michu and Danny Graham.

The south Wales club are likely to surrender top spot after Saturday's later matches.

But Swansea's perfect opening to the campaign will have their supporters recalling the glorious John Toshack era when the legendary Welsh striker led the club on a magical ride that briefly saw them top the old First Division.
