Swansea City 1-1 Manchester City: Iheanacho, Ayew trade goals

PxhbwPiLmHs1
Manuel Pellegrini and Manchester City squared off against Swansea with their sights set on at least a draw to secure Champions League next season.

  • Iheanacho nabs 8th PL goal
  • Ayew’s free kick deflects home
  • Man City set for fourth

Kelechi Iheanacho’s early goal was all Manchester City needed to clinch the Premier League’s fourth place in a 1-1 draw with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Manchester United had its match with Bournemouth postponed due to a suspicious package at Old Trafford, but the Red Devils will not catch City barring an absurd score line whenever the match is played.

Andre Ayew scored the equalizer for Swansea City, which finishes 12th in the PL.

Man City spent the early moments in Swansea’s end, and opened the scoring in the sixth minute when Iheanacho was on hand to tap in a rebound from Sergio Aguero to make it 1-0.

Jefferson Montero appeared to have equalized for Swansea when he stooped to head a goal home, but Mike Dean ruled the goal invalid for a phantom push.

Fernandinho slid a ball through for Aguero in the 27th minute, but Swans keeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt made a stamp save to stop the shot.

Andre Ayew made the equalizer happen with a deflected free kick off the edge of the Man City wall. It could go down as an own goal. 1-1.
