The Ghanaian, back in action after serving a three-game ban following his sending off at Huddersfield in March, struck a superb equaliser to move the Swans five points clear of the drop zone.

Jordan Ayew's second-half effort was enough to earn the Swans a deserved share of the spoils after Kyle Naughton's unfortunate own goal had seen them fall behind.

He's back on Saturday.

Everton came into the contest with seemingly little left to play for this season apart from pride and manager Sam Allardyce warning against complacency.

Swansea's first clear opening arrived in the 21st minute, with Everton opened up on the counter-attack and Idrissa Gueye's slip allowed Luciano Narsingh to find Jordan Ayew.

Andre Ayew was sent through by his brother Jordan in the 26th minute but shot too close to Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford under close attention from Michael Keane.

Everton were nearly back in front four minutes later when the stretching Coleman directed Tosun's cross against the bar from just five yards out.
