Cape Town - Fernando Llorente claims he has not reached top form at Swansea City and that the Premier League club's fans can expect more from him soon.

The Spanish striker initially struggled to command a regular starting berth after his surprise move to the Liberty Stadium during the off-season.

But since scoring a double in their 5-4 win against Crystal Palace and two in Saturday's 3-0 win over Sunderland, Llorente has firmly established himself as the Swans' leading man.

"I am very happy to have scored two goals, but I still feel I can improve," he told the club's official website.

"I've worked hard and maybe I'm getting close to my best form. But I know there is more to come.

"We have to keep this (form) going. It's a crucial month for us and we need to keep this across all four matches.

"This is the way we have to play, with more of the ball and intensity in our game. We were more aggressive and I liked that."
