On this day: Swans see off Rangers

2nd December

Goals from Ki Sung-Yueng and Wayne Routledge helped the Swans to a 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers at the Liberty Stadium on this day in 2014.

The result saw Garry Monk’s side climb to sixth in the Premier League, while QPR slipped down to 19th.

Rs goalkeeper Robert Green was in fine form for the visitors, keeping out efforts from Gylfi Sigurdsson, Wilfried Bony and Kyle Bartley as the hosts dominated the game.

But it was Ki who eventually opened the scoring, firing home a left-footed effort from an awkward angle on 78 minutes.

The South Korean’s first home Premier League goal for the Swans was quickly followed by a sweet Routledge finish, as the winger fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the area to secure the points.
