Despite the dominance of the home side, keeper Lukasz Fabianski had to make two superb reflex saves in quick succession to thwart Everton.

Unfortunately for him, the second bounced off the head of Naughton and back towards the goal and though Alfie Mawson cleared the ball it was deemed to have crossed the line.

Jordan Ayew, who was returning from a three-match ban he received for a straight red card against Huddersfield, put Swansea level after a sustained period of pressure in the second half, controlling the ball on his chest before hammering it home.
