Ayew came on as a substitute and scored two goals as Swansea came from behind to seal qualification into the second round of the competition.

“That’s exactly what we know he can do. He’s come back into the club after the international break in very good condition.

“He looks extremely motivated in training and tonight was about giving him the right amount of minutes..”
