#FestiveFavourites - Swansea City

We profile the five players selected by our in-house social media team have selected to make up the iconic Swansea City side from the 2012/13 season.


Swansea City (2012/13)

Having lost Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool, Swansea City looked to former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus midfielder Michael Laudrup as their new manager.

The Dane's side oozed class, swagger and panache as they notched up a ninth place finish in the Premier League and landed the first major silverware of the season by capturing the League Cup.
 

Gerhard Tremmel (GK)

Renowned for his shot-stopping abilities, Gerhard Tremmel boasted the best saves per goal conceded ratio in the Premier League for the 2012/13 campaign.

He also had the best save percentage in the Premier League that season, at 80%, and his saves-to-shots ratio in the Premier League made him second only to Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich throughout the whole of European football.

Tremmel played all seven of the club’s League Cup matches, making key saves throughout.
 

Àngel Rangel (DF)

Àngel Rangel joined Swansea for £100k after playing semi-professional football in Spain.

An instrumental part of the club's rise from League One to the Premier League, he also won the League Cup and featured in the Europa League.
 

Jonathan de Guzmán (MF)

Known for his incredible technique, Jonathan de Guzmán joined Swansea City on loan thus being re-united with former coach Michael Laudrup.

Registering eight goals and eight assists in his first campaign in England, De Guzmán’s performances helped Swansea City land their first major trophy and earned him a call-up to the Netherlands squad.
 

Pablo Hernández (MF)

Ten assists throughout his debut campaign for Swansea, Pablo Hernández arrived at the Liberty Stadium as a club record £5.5m signing.

The tricky and dangerous operator started for the club in the League Cup final and went on to feature heavily in Swansea’s Europa League and Premier League campaigns.
 

Michu (FW)

The true definition of a one-season wonder; Michu may have only had two seasons in the Premier League, but his debut campaign was something to behold.

Outscoring players such as Sergio Aguero, Dimitar Berbatov and Romelu Lukaku, he propelled Swansea to a top-10 finish, as well as helping instigate the club's only ever League Cup triumph.
