André Ayew could be the saviour to Swansea City’s season

Ayew joined the Swans last summer on a free transfer. He turned down clubs such as Liverpool because “I felt this was the right place for me,” Ayew said. “I felt that my desire to play in the Premier League and wanting to grow as a player meant that Swansea was the best solution for me in every way.” Many other players have taken this approach such as Scott Sinclair and Wilfried Bony by not moving to a big club straight away. Having both players moved on to Manchester City for a hefty fee, Swansea are turning out to be the feeding club for the bigger teams.
Francesco Guidolin’s men sit in 16th place on 27 points, only 3 points away from the relegation zone. They have thrown away a lot of winnable games this season by conceding a lot of late goals that usually come from defending corners. It seems to have become a habit of theirs for years now. Swansea’s next game is at White Hart Lane as they take on Totthenham. The game could turn out crucial for their season. It doesn’t get any easier for them, they are staying in North London for a game at the Emirates against Arsenal, which could also prove vital for their season. If Swansea win both games they could be in a very comfortable league position. Providing they lose both games, Swansea could be amongst the relegation scrap with teams like Newcastle, Norwich, Sunderland, Aston Villa & Bournemouth.
With Ayew’s work ethic, I believe he will inspire the team and Swansea will survive the thought of relegation this season. Ayew bagged 8 goals and 2 assists this season in the premier league with most of his goals being winning goals in very big games. He has carried Swansea through a lot and spurred them on to victory throughout the season and I hope he carries it on for the remaining games.
