Andre Ayew celebrating his goal

Ghana international Andre Ayew grabbed his seventh goal of the campaign for Swansea City but it was not enough as the Welsh side threw away a first-half lead to succumb to a 4-2 loss against Sunderland. 

The Ghana deputy captain had won a penalty which was converted by Sigurdsson Gylfi in the 21st minute but his team-mate Naughton Kyle was sent off but Andre withstood to send the strugglers up.

Ayew latched onto a Lukasz Fabianski punt, took 2 players on and drills into the far corner to register his 7th league goal in 21 games.

His strike put Alan Curtis's side into a 2-1 lead going into the second-half but Andre the Black Cats returned from the break to score thrice through opening goal getter Jermain Defoe and former Chelsea starlet Patrick van Aanholt.
