Michael Laudrup hailed his team’s perfect display after the Swans kicked off the new season with a thumping win against Queens Park Rangers.
The visitors had never won at Loftus Road and were on the receiving end of a 3-0 defeat against Mark Hughes' men back in April.
But the Swans put in a five-star performance as two goals apiece for debutant Michu and Nathan Dyer set Laudrup's men on their way, before substitute Scott Sinclair added a fifth to ensure the Great Dane’s regime got off to the best possible start.
The result meant that the Swans recorded their biggest away win since a 5-0 success against Leyton Orient back in October 2007, and Laudrup was full of praise for his players.
"It was very impressive," he said. "It's always nice to win your first game of the season and to win away from home is always important because it can give you so much confidence going forward.
"Last season it took us until January to win away from home and with two home games coming up, it gives us something to build on. But the players are the most important, and I'm delighted for them.”
Laudrup handed Premier League debuts to summer signings Chico Flores, Jonathan de Guzman and Michu, and it was the latter who caught the eye with a creative display in behind Danny Graham.
After giving the Swans the lead after just eight minutes, the former Rayo Vallecano man then curled home a sublime second to set the visitors on their way to a comfortable win.
"He was very good today," said Laudrup. "In particular, you look at his second goal and most players would maybe take a touch before shooting but he had the ability to have a go first time and it was a wonderful finish.
"I saw a lot of him when he was at Rayo Vallecano and I was at Real Mallorca, where I worked with both Chico and de Guzman, and I knew exactly what they can all bring to us. They all wanted to come and play for Swansea, their personalities fit in here and I'm pleased for all of them.
"All three players fit into the way we play, they are used to playing for smaller clubs out in Spain and that has helped us."
Wayne Routledge was also handed a start, and the winger turned in an all-action display as he helped set up Michu for his second, and supplying Nathan Dyer to net the Swans' fourth goal.
This left fellow winger Sinclair on the substitutes bench, and Laudrup explained his decision to go with Routledge and Dyer on the flanks.
"Wayne has been with me since the day I arrived at Swansea," he said. "I have worked with him and Nathan on a number of things tactically, and that was why Scott was on the bench.
"He has only been with us for about nine days after the Olympics and with what I had seen of him in training, I had no problem with having him in the squad today.
"The QPR midfield was physically much stronger than ours and it was crucial that we were more compact and closed the spaces down quickly. They did well in the first 20 minutes or so but overall, nobody can begrudge us the victory today."
Meanwhile, the home fans went home unhappy after seeing their side convincingly beaten on the opening day for the second season in succession.
Rangers were thumped 4-0 by Bolton last August, but there was renewed hope at Loftus Road after a flurry of summer signings including Ji-Sung Park, who was handed the captaincy by Mark Hughes.
But the R's boss conceded that his side had given the initiative to Swansea after conceding the opening goal.
"I think we played into their hands," he said. "It was an ideal scenario for them to score first as they like to keep possession. We are disappointed with the first goal and from then on we are always chasing the game.
"I thought we started brightly, but we now need to pick ourselves up as we're under no false pretences that it is going to be a really tough league this year."
