Swansea City and Newcastle United played out a 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Swans surged ahead in the 17th minute through Wilfried Bony, who latched onto Gylfi Sigurdsson’s pass to shoot home from close range.

Newcastle equalised three minutes before the half-time interval when Papiss Demba turned in Gabriel Obertan’s cross.

However, Swansea regained their advantage four minutes into the second half when Wayne Routledge latched onto Sigurdsson’s through-ball and made no mistake in tucking it away.

Newcastle, though, once again came back to restore parity, Cisse popping up to direct in Sammy Ameobi’s cross.
