A big part of Michu’s performances that season was that he was remarkably consistent with his goalscoring.
Aside from his four in three-goal rush to announce himself to the Premier League, his tallies were well spread out over the course of the campaign, easing the burden on the rest of the Swans.
The peak of Michu’s performances came in December, with a brace against Arsenal.

Both goals came from unerring finishes when he was put through one-on-one with the goalkeeper, as Swansea ran out 2-0 winners against the Gunners at the Emirates. Michu continued to be the man for the big occasion, scoring in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United not long after.
One of his biggest goals, however, came in the League Cup semifinals. Looking for the first silverware in the club’s history, Swansea were given a tough ask when drawn against Chelsea for the two-legged tie.
Just before halftime in the away leg, Swansea capitalised on a mistake from Branislav Ivanovic on the edge of the box. The ball was fed to Michu, who lashed it home from 18 yards, the goal that proved to be the winner in the tie.
