It was the Welsh club's first win in 10 games and gave Swansea some much-needed breathing space above the relegation scrap.

Swansea had not beaten struggling Norwich in five previous league meetings but two clinical finishes from de Guzman plus a 75th-minute goal from winger Wayne Routledge ended that unwanted record at the Liberty Stadium.

Garry Monk's side dominated both halves and, but for some jittery moments after the break, never looked in trouble.
