Black Stars striker Jordan Ayew came off the bench in the second half to aid Swansea City in their breathtaking 3-2 win over Burnley to give the Welsh club’s hopes of avoiding Premier League relegation a huge lift.
Jordan was brought on in the 75th with the game tied at 2-2 and maximum points drifting away from the Liberty stadium. But his contributions proved effective Swansea secured full spoils.
Spain striker Llorente’s thumping header gave the Welsh club an early lead but Burnley leveled from the spot, wrongly awarded by referee Anthony Taylor after the ball had hit the arm of Clarets striker Sam Vokes.
Swansea controlled the game in terms of possession and chances – hitting the woodwork three times – but fell behind in the second half.
Eight minutes later, Martin Olsson’s powerful effort brought Swansea level and, deep into added time, Llorente rose majestically to head in and prompt ecstatic celebrations at the Liberty Stadium.
Jordan was hoping to get his desired first start for Swansea since joining from Aston Villa. His been involved in four games, all coming from the bench.
