1 goal, 86% pass accuracy: Ayew stars in Swansea win over Newcastle

Swansea City Celebrate

The forward has made a strong start to his career with the Swans and was once again in good form in Saturday's win.

If there is one signing who is looking to be a coup this summer, it is Andre Ayew for Swansea City.

The Swans beat off fierce competition to sign the forward this summer, and while it is early days just yet, it seems manager Gary Monk may have pulled off a bargain in getting the forward in on a free transfer.

After an impressive debut against Chelsea in the 2-2 draw last week, in which he bagged his first goal for the club, he was again in good form this week as his side beat Newcastle 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

We decided to take a look at his stats from the game to see just how good he was.

Starting with the obvious, his goal set his side on the way to a highly polished victory, but it was also his key passes that were pivotal as he had two attempted throughout the game, and got both on target.

In fact, his passing throughout the game was impressive, as he registered thirty passes throughout the game with 26 of them being accurate ones, a passing success rate of 86%.

His danger in the final third was evident as well, with him having made 14 passes in the final third across the game, 46% of his total passes, with a huge 12 of those being successful passes, a success rate of 85%.

A standout performance from Ayew again though, whose passing was a clear quality throughout. Swansea fans will certainly be hoping he can continue this form for the rest of the season.
