Jordan Ayew supplies cutting edge to give Swansea City some breathing space

GETTYSam Allardyce says he has no problems with Wayne Rooney

Jordan Ayew boosted Swansea's fight for English Premier League survival by grabbing a 1-1 draw against Everton on Saturday.

Kyle Naughton's own goal just before the break handed the visitors the opener after the second of Lukasz Fabianski's double save ricocheted off the defender and into the Swansea net.

On the 71st minute, Ayew pulled even for the home side. We were close to nicking it but Swansea will probably feel they deserved a point.

Leighton Baines managed to deflect the Ghana forward's attempt behind and striker Cenk Tosun cleared Federico Fernandez's header off the line from the resulting corner.

Everton grew into the game after the half hour mark but could still consider themselves very fortunate to lead in the 43rd minute.


It was a hammer blow for the Swans, who were well on top.

The keeper again came to Everton's rescue to deny Andre Ayew, but he couldn't do anything to stop Ayew junior from hammering home the equaliser.

Carvalhal sent on Tammy Abraham in an attempt to sharpen his team's attack and fellow substitute Nathan Dyer sent a rasping drive just over with 20 minutes remaining.

Carroll showed great vision to pick out Jordan Ayew, and he controlled the pass before rifling his angled effort inside the far post.

However, Swansea, now with 33 points from as many games, are five points clear of third-bottom Southampton - with five games left of the 2017-18 English top-flight season.
