Cenk Tosun has scored all of Everton's last three away goals

Jordan Ayew grabbed another valuable point for Swansea City's survival bid as he secured a 1-1 draw at home to Everton.

Ayew, returning from a three-match suspension, fired home from Tom Carroll's cross in the 72 minute to cancel out Kyle Naughton's first-half own goal.

Swansea have picked up form dramatically under Carlos Carvalhal but conceded an own goal late on in the first 45 minutes to give Everton the lead.

Charlotte Caslick, one of Australia's best at these games, didn't come back on in the second half after a head knock. Canadian captain Ghislaine Landry opened the scoring in their semi clash with the defending Olympic champions.

The result moved them onto 33 points from as many games - five points clear of third-bottom Southampton.

Everton finally enjoyed some decent possession before the interval and made it count after Michael Keane had headed wide at the far post.

The Swansea keeper was similarly sharp in keeping out Bolasie's follow-up but that rebound struck Naughton and crossed the line before Alfie Mawson could hack clear.

Tosun's quick free kick sent Theo Walcott scampering clear but Fabianski left his penalty area quickly to block.

Jordan Ayew then linked wonderfully with his brother Andre, but he could only fire straight at Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Pickford showed assured handling to deny Tom Carroll from a long throw early in the second period and the England worldwide did well to parry behind from Andre Ayew at close quarters in the 51st minute.

Swansea wasted a gilt-edged opening when Tammy Abraham blasted over from Jordan Ayew's assist and had to settle for a point, which might yet prove crucial in the final reckoning.
