Despite failing to score, Wilfried Bony emerged as Swansea's star man in the club's 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers.

Wilfried Bony's goal record since his £12million move to Swansea speaks for itself - no Premier League player has scored more goals than the Ivorian striker in 2014. 

Just over a year down the line, and with 22 goals (in just 47 appearances) under his belt, pound-for-pound, it is hard to dispute just how good a signing the 25-year-old really was. Courted by a number of the English top flight's top club's prior to, and since his arrival, he is recognized as one of the country's most prolific center-forwards. 

His form has been influential in Swansea's excellent start to the season. Garry Monk's side currently lie in sixth place, just three points behind the top four. And following a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday, momentum is well and truly on their side.

Bony played an integral role in this win. While he was unable to get on the score sheet himself - the Ivorian had an incredible eight attempts in total, one of which saw him hit the woodwork in the dying moments - he turned provider for Ki Sung-yueng's late opener. 

He played two key passes during his 90-minute appearance, proving he has more than one string to his bow. He is renowned for his clinical nature in the 18-yard-box, but less so for his creativity. 

The 6ft powerhouse found further success in an incredible seven headed duels, while managing three take ons. He also contributed in a defensive capacity, weighing in with three clearances and one block. 

Bony can do little wrong recently. When not on the score sheet himself - a rarity - he offers everything in his power to secure his side three points.

At times against QPR it seemed as if the Swans would have to settle for a point, but the Ivorian's battling spirit ensured that this was not the case.
