Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew has applauded his teammates for their spirited performance following their famous 2-1 win at Everton on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Ghanaian provided man-of-the-match display for the Swans as they overcame the Toffees at Goodison Park.

Ayew scored the match winner - his 8th of his debut campaign for the struggling Welsh side.

But the Ghana deputy captain was left impressed with the resilience of his teammates after they were kept under intense pressure in the second half.

'It's a very important three points,' said Ayew. It was a very difficult game, and we needed the points to help us out of the situation we are in," he said

'We know the second half wasn't very beautiful on our part, but we showed a lot of spirit. We stayed in the game until the end and managed to hold our one-goal lead.

'I think we kept our shape well and showed great character, which is important.

'When you keep fighting and show desire, then sometimes you get a little bit of luck on your side. A few weeks ago, the chance at the end would have gone in.

'We need to keep this spirit. We've won two games and we want to go on a run now.'

The win has handed new manager Francesco Guidolin a respite ahead of the remaining matches in the English top-flight.
