Sigurdsson breaks all time Swansea record following Chelsea goal

Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson broke the all time club record to become top scorer in the Premier League following his goal in the 2-2 draw against Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium.

Sigurdsson has now scored 26 top-flight goals for the club which is one more than the record previously held by former striker Wilfried Bony, who recently joined Stoke City on a one-year loan from his parent club Manchester City.

The 27-year-old scored the opening goal for Swansea from the penalty spot against the Blues.

The Swans moved into 13th place on four points following their draw against the Blues but could have recorded their second win of the season had they held onto their 2-1 lead.

Leroy Fer put Swansea ahead in the second half with a controversial goal – the replays showed him clearly fouling Gary Cahill in the buildup to the goal.

Diego Costa managed to rescue a point for the Blues with an overhead kick late in the second-half.
