The brothers put up a superb performance against the Hammers with Andre, in particular, leaving the field with standing ovation from both supporters

Ghana midfielder Andre and younger brother Jordan Ayew were in action when Swansea City hammered West Ham 4-1 on Saturday in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium.

The duo was starting a game at club side for the first time in almost five seasons, after Andre made a return to Swansea from West Ham during the January transfer window.

It was Sung-Yueng Ki who set the ball rolling on the eight-minute after he connected a pass from Andre Ayew to open the scoring for Swansea before Mike van der Hoorn added another to make it 2-0 by the 32nd minute as Sung-Yueng Ki, who scored the opener turned from a goalscorer to become a provider.

Three minutes after the break, Andy King made it 3-0 for Swansea before Jordan Ayew added another goal on a 63rd minute from the spot.

West Ham finally got their consolation goal through substitute Michael Antonio, after Aaron Cresswell furnished him with the opportunity in the 78th minute but they could not find another goal despite David Moyes pushing men upfront.

Swansea has now leapfrogged West Ham on the log despite both having 30 points, but the Welsh side occupies the 13th position with superior goal difference.

The Ayew brothers are now expected to play part in Swansea’s next game against Huddersfield next weekend.
