Jordan Ayew's long range effort earned Swansea a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace at the Liberty Stadium.
Leon Britton - taking charge of his first game with Swansea - made two changes to the side who lost 3-1 to Everton. Out went Leroy Fer and Wilfred Bony, and in came Sam Clucas and Tammy Abraham. As for the visitors, Roy Hodgson made just the one change to the side who comprehensively beat Leicester City 3-0 last weekend. Out came Christian Benteke through suspension, and he was replaced by Luka Milivojevic.
Despite a dire start to the season, Palace came into the game unbeaten in their last seven Premier League matches, and were looking to pick up their third consecutive win.
They certainly looked the more threatening of the two sides early on after an early corner was met by Scott Dann who headed towards the bottom corner, however Lukasz Fabianski was equal to the task and was able to get down and hold on.
Fabianski was then recalled into action when Andros Townsend's strike appeared to be heading for the top corner, however the Polish international was able to keep it out and keep the scored level.
Despite the early threat from Palace on the counter attack, Swansea thought they should've had a penalty when Luciano Narsingh appeared to be brought down in the area, however referee Craig Pawson waved the appeals away. Replays showed there was slight contact on the Dutchman, however Pawson didn't see it as enough to award the penalty.
Even though the home side recorded 69% possession in the first half an hour, they failed to trouble Julian Speroni and with Britton playing a high-line, they looked vulnerable on the break as chances from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Wilfred Zaha soon followed, however came to nothing.
After a late onslaught by the visitors, Swansea were able to hold out until half-time and went into the break level.
