Swansea City forward Andre Ayew

Swansea City forward Andre Ayew is over the moon after scoring twice in his side’s 3-1 defeat of Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

The 26-year-old opened the scoring at the Liberty Stadium after heading home a Gylfi Sigurdsson’s corner on 20 minutes, before Jack Cork added a second 13 minutes later.

Christian Benteke halved the deficit after recess, but the Ghanaian was on hand to restore Swansea’s two goal lead three minutes later.

“It has been a magical few days,” Ayew told his club’s official website.

“The manager [Francesco Guidolin] has a lot of confidence in me. He gave me a day off to go back for the birth, and I did my best for the squad and to repay him.

“Liverpool have great players who want to win the Europa League, so it’s a good result for us and our fans.”

Brought to England from French side Marseille by former Swansea manager Garry Monk last summer, Ayew has taken his season’s tally to 10 goals in the topflight.

“I want to dedicate my goal goals to Garry Monk,” Ayew added.

“When I signed here, he wanted me to get 10 goals before the end of the season. He is no longer the gaffer, but I have a big thought for him because he brought me here.

“It’s not a bad tally for a first season. I know I can do better and I will continue to work hard for the squad and hopefully, I will get more assists and goals.”

Swansea currently sit 13th on the log with two matches to go.
