Swansea beat Sun­der­land 3-0 in rel­e­ga­tion clash

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

SWANSEA: A Gylfi Sig­urds­son penalty and a brace from Fernando Llorente gave Swansea City a 3-0 win over fel­low strug­glers Sun­der­land in the Pre­mier League yes­ter­day, re­liev­ing the pres­sure on man­ager Bob Bradley.

Sig­urds­son struck from the penalty spot in the 50th minute af­ter a hand­ball by Ja­son De­nayer and he turned provider four min­utes later, slid­ing a low cor­ner into the box which Spa­niard Llorente steered past goal­keeper Jordan Pick­ford.

Llorente wrapped up the three points in the 80th minute when he headed in Jef­fer­son Mon­tero’s cross fol­low­ing an in­ter­cep­tion by the ex­cel­lent Leon Brit­ton, who was mak­ing his first ap­pear­ance since the start of Novem­ber. The win was Swansea’s sec­ond un­der Amer­i­can Bradley, the favourite with Bri­tish book­mak­ers to be the next Pre­mier League man­ager to lose his job, and made it back-to-back vic­to­ries at the Lib­erty Sta­dium for his team. — Reuters
