Andre Ayew scores seventh goal of the season in Swansea City draw

​Swansea City manager Steve Cooper has tipped Ghana international Andre Ayew to hit double figures in goals by the end of 2019, Ghanasoccernet reported.

The Championship is left with four matches to end of the year and Ayew has managed to score seven goals across all competitions.

“Andre has been brilliant in every way, shape or form,” Cooper told the club's official website.

“He has seven goals now, so he could easily get to double figures over the Christmas period.

“We know he has the ability, he can be as good as anyone in the league and he can play at a higher level.

“But the fact he is showing the commitment and work-rate he is means it is rubbing off on everybody.

“It is certainly motivating me to see a player so committed to what we are doing."

Ayew scored his latest goal in Swansea's 1-1 draw to Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday night.

“I thought he was head and shoulders above anyone else on the pitch last night, and that is expected because he is at that level," Cooper added.

“But he is in a good place, he is in good form and when you see that last night when he plays like a player who is really enjoying what we are doing and desperate to help us pick up more points.

“He has set an example, without any shadow of a doubt."
