Angel Rangel hails impact of Swansea new boys Defender Angel Rangel believes Swansea's summer recruits have played a major role in the club's perfect start to the season. Swansea followed on from their opening day win over QPR to beat West Ham 3-0 and maintain their 100% start. New signings Michu, Jonathan de Guzman and Chico have all played in the two Premier League victories. "The signings from the gaffer have made a difference so far," Rangel said. Michu joined the Swansea from Rayo Vallecano while Dutchman de Guzman will spend the season on loan from Villarreal. Spanish defender Chico joined from Italian club Genoa, having played for Swansea boss Michael Laudrup at Real Mallorca during a loan spell in Spain's top division. And Rangel believes all three have settled in at Swansea and are suited to the Welsh side's style of play. "They've all come from a league in Spain that they all know to keep the ball," added Rangel. "Their strength is their quality on the ball and they're very intelligent on the pitch as well and I think this is making the difference for us. "Michu has had a great start, scoring three goals in two games. And Chico at the back is looking very solid." Please turn on JavaScript. Media requires JavaScript to play. //
