Gloom for Crystal Palace after Tammy Abraham inspires Swansea to easy win

Football: Premier League baptism of fire for new Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer

Both sides were looking for their first goals and win of the season, with Crystal Palace and the Swans failing to score in their opening 2 League games.

Ghana global, Jordan Ayew has insisted that he wants to be an all-around player after helping Swansea City to a 4-1 demolition of Milton Keynes Dons in the League Cup on Tuesday.

Swansea increased the dark clouds circling over Frank De Boer's Crystal Palace with a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park.

Palace were deservedly beaten here on the back of a shoddy and toothless display, and following their reverses against Huddersfield on the opening day and Liverpool last week find themselves on zero points going into the worldwide break, having scored no goals and conceded six. 'It is a very hard lesson for us.

Swansea City head coach Paul Clement said that he was particularly happy with today's result as his side recorded their first win of the season.

It was the Chelsea loanees first Premier League goal and Swansea's first PL goal of the season.

"That's good because it gives us confidence for the game this weekend, which is massive for us".

Skipper Leon Britton is also available after a back injury forced him out of the last two games against Manchester United and MK Dons.

The first chance of the game fell to Ayew, latching onto the end of Abraham's cross but his header flew just wide of the goal. "We got the equalizer and then ended up scoring four goals", he said.

The visitors made an immediate impact in the second half as Jordan Ayew scores in the 48th minute. But until we see evidence this term that they're a better side on their travels - and of course, we might see it here - then I'm happy to oppose them.

Pellegrino's men could manage only a draw at home to Swansea a fortnight ago (admittedly, a game they should have won), and last weekend they led 2-0 and had a man advantage at home to West Ham, but nearly threw away victory that afternoon, being pegged back to 2-2 before a last-gasp penalty saved their blushes.

"But the strikers scored in midweek and again here".
