Andre Ayew was your man of the match on Saturday as the Swansea City suffered a 2-0 loss at second-placed Manchester United.

Ayew faced a tough task on his own up front, but he battled well throughout, and was helped in the second half when head coach Carlos Carvalhal made some much-needed changes, bringing on striker Tammy Abraham in place of Ki Sung Yueng.

Goalkeeper Lucasz Fabianski was leading the poll up until today before Ayew edged in front with a 32% majority of the votes, with Fabianski in second place with 27%.

Despite playing up top as our lone striker, Ayew had to drop deep to get involved as the Swans were very defensive in the first half before being more positive after the break.
