Wilfried Bony scored twice against his old club as Stoke City beat Swansea City 3-1 at the bet365 stadium.
The striker, who joined on loan from Manchester City two years after leaving Swansea, netted his first Premier League goal for Stoke on three minutes, turning in Joe Allen’s miscued shot.
Wayne Routledge levelled five minutes later when he headed in Gylfi Sigurdsson’s cross.
Trickery and a shot from substitute Ramadan Sobhi, on for the injured Xherdan Shaqiri in the first half, forced an own goal from Swansea’s Alfie Mawson on 55 minutes.
And Bony wrapped up the win when he headed in from close range after being set up by Allen, securing a third straight PL victory for the Potters as they moved up to 12th in the table. Swansea, in 19th, are five points adrift of safety.
