Swansea ease to win as pressure builds on De Boer at Palace

Swansea ease to win as pressure builds on De Boer at Palace

Swansea picked up their first Premier League win of the season with a deserved victory over a disappointing Crystal Palace side at Selhurst Park.

Tammy Abraham put the away side ahead just before half-time with a low finish after beating Martin Kelly to Leroy Fer’s cross, having earlier seen a close-range effort stopped by Wayne Hennessey following Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s slip.

Kelly then tamely headed Palace’s first effort on target from a corner after the break, before his mistake let Swansea in for their second.

The defender was robbed on the halfway line by Kyle Naughton, whose through ball was finished off by Jordan Ayew.

Yohan Cabaye came off the Palace bench for his first appearance of the season and might have converted from a one-two with Jason Puncheon had it not been for Mike van der Hoorn’s saving challenge, while Andros Townsend shot just wide after Alfie Mawson’s sliced clearance with five minutes to go.
