5 successful dribbles: The Swansea talisman who had a serious impact in weekend win



Swansea City came out of their clash against Huddersfield Town at the weekend with three points as they remain a dark horse for the play-off places.

One player who was once again influential in the weekend win for Steve Cooper’s men was winger Andre Ayew as he kept up his good form that has so often saved the Swans this season.

Swansea overcame the Terriers thanks to goals from Ayew, Jay Fulton and Jordon Garrick as they are now just five points off the play-off spots.

Here, we take a look at the stats behind Ayew’s performance against Huddersfield at the weekend…

He netted the opening goal of the game when he was in the right place at the right time to turn in a loose ball after visiting keeper Jonas Lossl had spilled a shot from Aldo Kalulu.

The winger received the ball on plenty of occasions during the game and he kept things simple while in possession, completing 14 passes as he made sure that most of his passes found a white shirt, although he did also waste five.

Ayew showed no fear when he had to run at defenders with his jinking and darting runs often bamboozling the Huddersfield full-backs.

He completed all of his dribbles as he maintained his balance well when drifting past outstretched legs and being able to find a pass or a cross as he got further up the field.

His dribbling did sometimes come at a cost however as he found himself being fouled five times by Huddersfield players when he advanced into positions high up the pitch.

It wasn’t just Ayew’s attacking responsibilities that stood out as he also performed well when defending.

The forward made seven interceptions as his pressing and work-rate forced Huddersfield right-back Danny Simpson into some hurried decisions when he was on the ball.

He also made one successful sliding tackle during the game as he dispossessed Richard Stearman on the edge of the Swansea area. The Terriers still scored from the move but Ayew can hold his head high for his defensive contribution.
