Jordan Ayew assists as Swansea climb out of drop zone

Jordan Ayew provided a key assist for Swansea as they beat Everton to leapfrog Hull City and move out of the relegation drop zone,

Fernando Llorente netted shortly before the half hour, heading in Jordan Ayew’s brilliant cross at the back post, as the hosts capitalised on Hull City’s shock defeat at home to Sunderland earlier on Saturday.

The Swans were the better team throughout but could not add to the lead, with Ayew coming closest when he hit the post to set up a nervy finish.

However the visitors did not create any meaningful chances all match and Lukasz Fabianski was not forced into a difficult save.

Swansea, on 35 points, are now one point clear of Hull with two games remaining in the battle for survival.
