Swansea thump QPR
London - Summer signing Miguel Michu made
his mark for Swansea with a brace of goals to help the Welsh club notch
up a convincing 5-0 victory over QPR in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Spanish midfielder, signed on a three-year deal from Rayo Vallecano
for £2 million, scored in the eighth and 53rd minutes, the first goal a
speculative 25-yard shot that beat QPR's new keeper Rob Green.
It was an impressive debut for Michu as he started alongside Chico
Flores and Jonathan De Guzman, both also brought in by new Danish
manager Michael Laudrup in the off-season.
Nathan Dyer compounded QPR's woes with a brace for himself in the 63rd and 71st minutes as Swansea dominated possession.
Having never won in 20 previous trips to QPR in all competitions, 17 of
them in league competition, Swansea's want-away striker Scott Sinclair
bagged a fifth goal with nine minutes to play.
QPR fielded summer signings Green, Fabio, Park Ji-Sung and Junior Hoilett, with another, Ryan Nelsen, named on the bench.
But the west London club were without Joey Barton, who starts his
12-match suspension for his red card and subsequent conduct on the final
day of last season against Manchester City.
frailities shown by his side will set the alarm bells ringing for QPR
manager Mark Hughes, with his side next week facing an away trip to
Norwich, who ironically suffered a similar 5-0 loss to Fulham on
