Everton 1-2 Swansea
Premier League - Saturday, January 24, 2016
Francesco Guidolin enjoyed a dream start to his tenure as Swansea City head coach as his side secured a first-ever Premier League victory over Everton.
First-half goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Ayew helped the Swans earn a 2-1 victory at Goodison Park.
Following a bright start from the visitors, Sigurdsson scored from the penalty spot in the 16th minute after Ayew was fouled by Tim Howard inside the box.
Everton levelled the scores through an unfortunate Jack Cork own goal on 26 minutes after he deflected Gareth Barry's effort in off the post, before Ayew restored Swansea's advantage with his eighth goal of the season just ten minutes later.
The Swans were made to withstand heavy pressure in the second half as Lukasz Fabianski was on hand to save a Romelu Lukaku header, while Seamus Coleman missed an open goal from six yards out with the last kick of the game.
The crucial win moves the Swans on to 25 points - four above third-bottom Newcastle United - and up to 15th position in the Premier League table.
