Dane keen for Swans to push on and finish ninth in the standings come May.
Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup wants his players to finish the season strongly following their Capital One Cup final victory over Bradford City at Wembley stadium last Sunday.
The one-time Denmark international has set the Swans a target of reaching 50 points in the Premier League this campaign, four more than they managed last season under Brendan Rodgers’ management, as well as finishing in ninth place.
“I still think we could at least arrive [at] 50 points,” Laudrup told BBC Sport.
“I think we have to do a little better than last season, to do better than 11th. We are ninth – we would like to stay there.
“That means 13 points more in 11 games. That should be possible.
“I admit we have some very very difficult games out there. We have to compete otherwise we could lose most of them.
“We’ve been competitive the whole season apart from Liverpool and two or three half matches. We can’t stop doing that now.”
“There might be a negative reaction after winning the cup – I hope not – but it’s a possibility.
“I hope the players go out and play the best game of the season, because this is the first game after the cup final, we are playing at home in front of our fans with the cup on display, so I hope – but I don’t know.
“The fact we are now in the Europa League next season has nothing to do with our Premier League form, because we didn’t start the season thinking about Europe.”
