Ghana’s Dede Ayew Scores For Swansea In EPL Debut
Not only did he play the entire 90 minutes for his new English Premier League side, but Black Stars deputy captain Andre Dede Ayew got Swansea City their first 2015/2016 goal.
Gary Monk’s side travelled to London to face champions Chelsea FC on the opening day of the 2015/2016 Barclays Premier League.
A beautifully taken freekick by Brazilian Oscar gave the champions a boost in the defence of their title.
But FIFA U-20 world cup winner Ayew scrambled a goal into the net of Thibaut Courtois to give the Swans the needed equalizer.
Though Chelsea restored the lead within a minute, Swansea went ahead to share the spoils with the champions after getting a penalty, which had seen Courtois red-carded.
Ayew capped an opening day for three of the four Black Stars players in the Premier League.
Jordan Ayew played 59 minutes in Aston Villa’s 1-0 win at AFC Bournemouth, whose midfielder Christian Atsu sat out as a result of injury.
Jeffrey Schlupp also started where he left off last season playing the full game in Leicester City’s 4-2 win over Sunderland.
He received a Yellow card though.
