Ayew In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

Ayew In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

Swansea City are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks following the clash with West Ham.

Actually Garth is now down as a 'Football Analyst' these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by Andre Ayew in the four one victory over West Ham United at the weekend at the Liberty Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we'll also not argue with it, selected Ayew as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

'If you`re going to make a statement to the club that has just sold you then playing your part in the four-goal demolition of your former employer is the way to do it. Andre Ayew and his brother, Jordan, absolutely destroyed West Ham. Their father, the great former Marseille and Ghana international Abedi Pele, should be very proud of his boys.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Ayew for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.

Full Team:

Jack Butland (Stoke City), Matt Lowton (Burnley), Lewis Dunk (Brighton), Adrian Mariappa (Watford), Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur), Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Andre Ayew (Swansea City), Leroy Sane (Manchester City).
