It was a night to remember for Swansea City.
A clash with Norwich City represented a real opportunity to close the gap on the automatic promotion spaces, and boy did they do that.
Steve Cooper’s side put in one of the performances of the season as they secured a 2-0 victory over the Canaries at the Liberty Stadium.
Not only did that result see the Swans move into the top two places for the time being, but it has also put them just two points behind Daniel Farke’s side with a game in hand on the Championship leaders.
While it was clearly a real team effort one man has certainly drawn the plaudits for his performance.
Conor Hourihane joined the club on loan from Aston Villa in the January transfer window and put in an excellent all-round display, however it was his effort from 20 yards that really caught the eye of supporters.
Here’s what a selection of supporters had to say about the midfielder’s display.
Were Villa crazy leaving this diamond go, but hey he will be the difference on our promotion 👏😄
