Jordan Ayew, right with his brother Andre Ayew, scored against each other

Ghana brothers Jordan And Andre Ayew scored against each other in Aston Villa’s 2-1 home reverse against Swansea City in the English Premier League on Saturday. 

Jordan, who was without a Premier League goal since his move to the Villa Park from French side Lorient, dived to head home a Gabby Agbonlahor low cross in the 62nd minute to fire Tim Sherwood’s side in front after Sigurdsson had scored first for Swansea.

But Andre Ayew came to the party with a late effort to seal the maximum points for the Welsh side. A goal that has piled more pressure on Villa manager Sherwood following the club’s woeful start to the season.

Andre should have put the visitors in front when he was played through on goal by Bafetimbi Gomis only for his shot to be saved by on-rushing keeper Brad Guzan.

Villa counter-attacked from the resulting corner, with Jordan nodding in Gabriel Agbonlahor’s cross. However, Swansea responded impressively and Andre atoned for his earlier miss as he scored the winner from six yards after a dangerous low cross by Naughton.

While Jordan scored his first ever Premier League goal of the season, Andre who was voted the Premier League’s player of the month of August scored his 5th goal of the campaign.
