Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has demanded another winning performance from his side when they face Malmo in Europa League qualifying on Thursday night.

City hold a commanding 4-0 lead from the opening leg of their third qualifying round tie at the Liberty Stadium last week.

Laudrup will ring the changes in his team, with midfielder Jonjo Shelvey definitely ruled out through illness.

But he is keen for them to impress as they prepare to face Manchester United in their opening Premier League fixture on 18 August.

"This game is not about testing things, we have to move on from the game last week," he said.

"We are here to win the game. We want to qualify and win this game, I am not here for us to play and lose 2-1 or 3-2 and be satisfied with that.

"We know we are nearly there but for me it is important to have a good performance before we start the Premier League against Manchester United.

"We have built through pre-season, we have conceded only one goal and that is what I want to see.

"I want a good performance away from home in a game where there will be moments when we will not dominate, which we will have to be able to cope with as our first two games in the league are against very good sides in United and Tottenham."

Laudrup also warned his side their Swedish opponents will be stung by the heavy defeat in the opening game and will be looking for revenge.

"No-one likes to lose 4-0 and to be honest they did well in the first half last week," he added.

"We had the ball, we played it around a lot, but to be fair to Malmo they were well organised and we were a bit lucky their defender slipped for the first goal.

"They now play in front of their home fans and they will try and do their best to win the game.

"They will know it will be hard to score five against us but they will want to win the game and we want the same."
