Jordan Ayew scores as Swansea beat Arsenal to move out of bottom three

J. Ayew

Jordan Ayew’s found the back of the net on Tuesday night as Swansea City moved out of the relegation zone for the first time since November following a shock 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

Ayew struck his fifth league goal of what has been a wonderful campaign as the Swans claimed full spoils at the Liberty stadium.

Jordan Ayew capitalised on a horrendous error from veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech to score a tap-in which put the hosts ahead just after the hour mark, before Sam Clucas’ second goal made the result safe.

Mesut Ozil’s sensational pass had allowed Nacho Monreal to open the scoring for the Gunners, but Clucas levelled for Swansea within a minute.

Victory means Swansea have earned back-to-back wins for the first time this season, while Arsene Wenger’s side have won only three of 13 Premier League away games this term.

Jordan, on the other hand, is enjoying by far his best spell since moving to England in the summer of 2015 when he signed for Aston Villa.

In over 50 appearances in two seasons, Ayew scored nine goals but he has a total of six for Swans this term.

And with more than 20 games remaining, one can bet on Jordan smashing his Villa scoring record.
