Swansea used a dominating first-half performance to bring high-flying West Bromwich Albion's excellent run to a halt with a 3-1 victory at home in Premier League on Wednesday.
The Baggies were overrun in the opening 45 minutes, as Michu scored his ninth goal of the season and Wayne Routledge added a double to give the hosts a 3-0 lead.
Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for the Baggies just before halftime but, despite an improved second-half display, Steve Clarke' side couldn't get any closer to a comeback.
West Brom was looking to record a fifth straight win in the top flight for the first time in 34 years.
