Swansea defender Angel Rangel is convinced his team's confidence will not be dented by their first defeat of the new Premier League season.

Michael Laudrup's men were beaten 2-0 by Aston Villa on Saturday after two wins and a draw in their opening three games.

But they lacked the attacking verve shown in their previous performances as goals from Matthew Lowton and Christian Benteke brought the high-flying Swans crashing back down to earth.

Now Rangel has tipped his wounded side to bounce back with a sharp response against Everton next weekend.

Reaction

"Every time we have lost a game we have reacted," said the Spaniard.

"Last season we had a losing streak of four games and then we were unbeaten for three. Hopefully we can get a good result against Everton.

"Everton are a good side, but our confidence is still high. We're disappointed, but it's still early in the season, we're playing good football and creating chances. I don't think it is going to affect us at all."
