Andre Ayew Marks Swansea City Second Debut In Win Over Burnley

Andre Ayew Marks Swansea City Second Debut In Win Over Burnley”

The South Korea global produced the only moment of quality with nine minutes remaining at the Liberty Stadium, his low effort creeping past Nick Pope to extend Burnley's winless run to 10 matches.

Half chances were the best they could muster, Lukasz Fabianski rarely called upon as Burnley's attacking woes continued.

The one moment of quality came with 12 minutes on the clock as Sam Vokes latched onto Ashley Barnes' knockdown, however the Wales worldwide fired wide from 20 yards.

Ayew, 28, rejoined the Welsh-based outfit in a club record deal of £18 million, a fee that could rise to £20 million, on transfer deadline day.

Sam Vokes' battering-ram approach asked serious questions of Swansea's three-man central defence, with the Burnley striker invariably winning flick-ons for his strike partner Ashley Barnes.

Gudmundsson also skewed over but Swansea improved as the half wore on.

But it was Swansea who finally made the breakthrough, Carroll dancing across the Burnley box and his lay-off was left by Jordan Ayew for Ki who stole in and struck low past Fabianski.

The Swans have lost just once in 10 games in all competitions, but still have plenty of work to do if they are to remain in the Premier League.

Swansea have won all three of their Premier League home games against Burnley; the only side they've faced a few times at the Liberty Stadium and have a 100% record against in the competition.

Swansea enjoyed more than two-thirds of possession but both teams struggled to create clear-cut opportunities in the first half.

And with Carlos Carvalhal's men looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to five games on Saturday, Ayew hopes he can play a part.

Capped a fine performance in the centre of midfield with the goal that could be so valuable in Swansea's bid to avoid the drop.
