However, the Swans were well organised, and despite struggled to create many chances tjhey eventually took the lead late on. Jonjo Shelvey was the goal-hero for Garry Monk’s men, with the midfielder  firing home a 25-yard cracker on 83 minutes to secure the Swans first win away at Southampton in 62 years.
