Ayew tapped in the leveller in the 86th minute before Luciano Narsingh secured maximum points for the Swans in a dramatic fashion on the stroke of full time.

The victory at Vicarage Road takes Carvalhal’s charges off the base of the log to 19th spot with 16 points 21 games.

They welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Liberty Stadium for the next league outing on January 2.
