SWANSEA, Wales (AP) Norwich extended its unbeaten run to nine Premier League matches on Saturday by winning 4-3 at Swansea to inflict the hosts' first loss in six weeks.

Norwich led 3-0 by halftime at Liberty Stadium after goals by Steven Whittaker in the 16th minute, Sebastien Bassong in the 40th and Grant Holt in the 44th.

Swansea pulled back to 3-2 with strikes to Michu in the 51st and Jonathan De Guzman in the 59th. But Norwich midfielder Robert Snodgrass' free kick gave his team a cushion, until Michu scored his league-leading 12th goal of the season in added time.

Norwich provisionally rose one spot to 11th. Swansea dropped a place to eighth in the standings.

Norwich hasn't loss in the league since a 4-1 reverse to Chelsea on Oct. 6, while Swansea had previously been unbeaten since going down 1-0 at Manchester City on Oct. 27.
