Fairy-tale Premier League start for Ayew continues

17 August 2015, 15:15

Paris - A fairy-tale start to English Premier League football for Ghana playmaker Andre Ayew continued at the weekend with the second goal for Swansea in a 2-0 victory over Newcastle.

Ayew, a son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele, also scored for the Swans in an opening-round draw at defending champions Chelsea last weekend.

Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez claimed his third league goal in two outings with the winner as Leicester City triumphed 2-1 at West Ham United.


ANDRE AYEW (Swansea City)

Ayew's smooth adaptation to life in England continued as he scored his second goal in two games in Swansea's 2-0 win over Newcastle United. The former Marseille midfielder claimed Swansea's second goal in the 52nd minute at the Liberty Stadium, heading in a cross from Jefferson Montero.


Senegal striker Diouf completed a late Stoke fightback with an 83rd-minute header to earn his side a 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur. Having twice been thwarted by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Diouf prevailed at the third attempt with a glancing header from substitute Stephen Ireland's left-wing cross.

RIYAD MAHREZ (Leicester City)

Mahrez preserved his place at the top of the Premier League scoring chart by claiming his third goal of the campaign in his side's 2-1 victory at West Ham United. The Algerian scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 38th minute, meeting Marc Albrighton's cut-back with an unerring left-foot finish.

YAYA TOURE (Manchester City)

Ivory Coast international Toure followed up a goal-scoring performance in City's 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion with a dominant midfield display as his side overpowered champions Chelsea to win 3-0. He set up Sergio Aguero's 31st-minute opener with a wall pass and forced visiting goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to save a curling shot in the second half.



The Malian right-back was making his home debut as a Reims player after signing from Lierse in Belgium in the summer and he marked it with the goal that secured a memorable 1-0 win against Marseille.


Togo international midfielder Romao was sent off for two second-half yellow cards in Marseille's defeat at Reims as OM slumped to a second defeat in as many games this season.


Senegal forward Saivet captained Bordeaux at Saint-Etienne in the absence of several key players due to injury and it was he who rescued a point for his side with a stoppage-time free-kick going in to secure a 1-1 draw.


France-born Togo forward Ayite made it two goals from as many games this season with the opener for Bastia in their 1-1 draw at Lorient.


A summer signing from Reims, Cameroon international Moukandjo netted his first goal for new club Lorient, a stoppage-time penalty saving a 1-1 draw against Bastia.



The Gabon striker opened his goal account for the new season with a superb header as Dortmund routed Borussia Moenchengladbach 4-0 in their first league game under new coach Thomas Tuchel. The 26-year-old headed home Marcel Schmelzer's superb cross after 21 minutes.


The Cameroon forward netted Schalke's second in a 3-0 win at Werder Bremen. Right winger Choupo-Moting converted a pass from his international team-mate Joel Matip on 68 minutes.

SALOMON KALOU (Hertha Berlin)

The Ivory Coast veteran converted a second-half penalty to seal Hertha's 1-0 win at Augsburg. Both sides ended with 10 men after two-caution red cards.
