Jo Ayew scores as Swansea seal comeback win at Watford

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew netted his third Premier League goal as Swansea City staged an enthralling comeback to defeat Watford on Saturday.

Late goals by the Black Stars forward and Luciano Narsingh gave Swansea a 2-1 win at Watford and handed visiting coach Carlos Carvalhal a winning debut in England’s top flight.

Ayew struck an 85th-minute equalizer and substitute Narsingh netted a 90th-minute winner for Swansea after Peru forward Andre Carrillo gave Watford an 11th-minute lead with a close-range header after visiting keeper Lukasz Fabianski could only parry Richarlison’s fierce shot from a tight angle.

It was the most unlikely climax to the match as Watford dominated and looked set to celebrate their second successive league win, with Swansea looking bereft of ideas after Ayew’s fifth-minute pile-driver from 30 metres hit the crossbar.

However, Watford were punished after substitute Andre Gray missed a sitter moments before Ayew’s equalizer and Narsingh stunned the home crowd as he swept home a rebound to give Swansea only their second league win in 13 games.
