Swansea beats West Brom 2-0 in Premier League
WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) — Goals from Ben Davies and Pablo Hernandez gave Swansea a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, its first Premier League victory of the season.
Hernandez assisted Swansea’s first after 22 minutes when his right-sided cross was volleyed beyond West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill by Davies.
Nicolas Anelka, who was making his first appearance for West Brom since returning from compassionate leave after the death of his agent, nearly equalized ten minutes later but shot wide with only Michel Vorm to beat.
Hernandez secured the win for Michael Laudrup’s side seven minutes from the end, receiving a cut-back from Michu on the left before shooting past Myhill with a powerful finish.
