Andre Ayew nets first goal in 2021 as Swansea beat Norwich

Ghana’s Andre Ayew finally netted his first goal in the new year as Swansea City recorded a 2-0 victory over Norwich City to move within two points of the 2020/21 English Championship leaders.

The Swans created the better chances throughout what was a lively encounter at Liberty Stadium Friday night.

After 42 minutes, it was Ayew – the Black Stars captain – who managed to put Swansea in front with his 9th goal of the campaign.

Norwich keeper Tim Krul flapped at Roberts’ corner and Fulton helped tee up Ayew who squeezed the ball in through a crowded six-yard box.

The hosts quickly doubled the lead three minutes into the second half through Conor Hourihane. The Irish midfielder received the ball 25 yards from goal and unleashed a vicious low drive that flashed into the bottom corner.

Swansea held on to the 2-0 lead and claimed all three points to stretch their unbeaten run to 10 matches in all competitions while they moved back into second place in the league table courtesy of what was a stunning display.

Norwich City lead the Championship log with 55 points from 28 games. Swansea are in second with 53 and have played a game less.
