Swansea City's Michu: Now the sky's the limit
MICHU insists the sky's the limit after inspiring Swansea City to a landmark win at Arsenal on Saturday.
The £2 million bargain buy scored twice late on in North London as Michael Laudrup's side secured a hugely impressive 2-0 win.
That took Michu's tally to 11 goals in all competitions since his summer switch from Rayo Vallecano.
The 26-year-old leads the Premier League top scorers' chart alongside household names Luis Suarez and Robin van Persie.

Just as the game looked destined to finish goalless, Michu pounced in the 88th minute.
He exchanged passes with substitute Luke Moore before showing superb composure to loft the ball over Wojciech Szczesny and into the corner of the net.
Then, as Arsenal searched for an equaliser, the former Celta Vigo player struck again.
Nathan Dyer brilliantly closed down Carl Jenkinson and an unflappable Michu had the freedom of the Emirates to cement Swansea's win.
"It was like a dream," he said.
"The defence was good, in attack we had 12 attempts on target, so we were very good all through the team.
"The manager told us we were very good in the first half against West Brom, and that we could bring that performance here to Arsenal, and we did.
"For the goals, it was a great pass from Luke for the first and Nathan did a lot of good work for the second. I was very happy to take my chances and score.
"I'm very happy here with my team-mates, the gaffer and the club. I hope it continues like this."
Victory against Arsenal lifted Swansea to seventh in the Premier League ahead of Norwich's visit to the Liberty on Saturday.
And Michu believes Laudrup's men can continue climbing.
"This team can go up and up," he said.
"I'm very happy we are on 23 points, but we need to keep it going.
"We have to continue working hard. If we don't work hard we will lose for sure.
"We have more tough games coming up, and we have to keep the same attitude that we have shown recently."
Meanwhile, Swansea are hopeful Wayne Routledge will be back to fitness for Saturday's game with Norwich after he missed the win at Arsenal with an ankle problem.
Laudrup said: "His ankle was not good enough after two and a half days. He could barely walk so he should have had an injection (to play), but we agreed it was better to rest him."
