So emphatic was the victory that Swansea even could play the last half hour with ten men after the dismissal of Nathan Dyer for a nail up challenge on Jordi Gomez, one of a number of factors that fueled the anger of Whelan.
“It was our worst performance in four or five years,” he said. “I will have a meeting with him on Monday and ask you some questions about the performance and selection.” We had three quality players on the bench and I want to know why.

Having collected a pass from Steven Caulker in first half the time of the injury, Sigurdsson was allowed time and space to take two touches of control before an unstoppable shot in the upper corner of curling.
The advantage was little more than well-deserved visitors a dominant half in which Scott Sinclair came to breaking the deadlock after 39 minutes, exchanging passes with Dyer and shot goalwards only for James McCarthy delete the online.
Dyer, he had also come close, close in a superb pass of Sigurdsson inside two defenders only to see his shot well saved by the extensive Al Habsi.
Matters improved slightly to Martinez, after a renovation of half-time, but after 54 minutes, Sigurdsson doubled the lead from a free kick 25 yard, a shot of right foot around the post and past goalkeeper curling after Dyer had shot down by Antolín Alcaraz.
“Create goals and objectives of score, simple as that,” said Swansea Manager Brendan Rodgers of the player with whom he had worked at the reading.
The red card ensured an evening that you should have been the case of Swansea but aside from terrific volley from Mohamed Diame only clean the bar and a Hugo Rodallega shot that looks like by Michel Vorm, which the local team threatened little more difficult.
“This was a convincing victory because we have demonstrated today, every element of our game,” added Rodgers.
