Larsson assesses Swansea draw.

Seb Larsson admitted to having mixed feelings following Sunderland's draw at Swansea.

Michu's second-half equaliser earned the hosts a share of the spoils after the Black Cats had led 2-1 at the break.

Swansea is a difficult place to come – they are strong here and play good football.

Sunderland's goals were the first conceded by Swansea this season after Michael Laudrup's side opened the 2012-13 with two wins in two games.

Their run came to an end as Martin O'Neill's side bagged a point to continue their unbeaten start to the season.

“We've got to be pleased with a point,” Larsson said.

“Of course, Swansea is a difficult place to come – they are strong here and play good football.

“We knew we'd have to defend well to get something.

“But having gone ahead twice in the game, we're never going to be completely satisfied with a point.”

A red card for Chico Flores set up a grandstand finish as Sunderland battled to claim a point.

But Larsson said there's room for improvement.

“I have to be honest, in the second half Swansea were the better team,” he explained.

“They had the ball a lot although they didn't create too many clear-cut chances.

“We didn't take care of the ball enough when we had the chance. We gave it away too often and never seemed to get the team up high enough.”
