Paris - A fairy-tale start to English Premier League football for Ghana playmaker Andre Ayew continued at the weekend with the second goal for Swansea in a 2-0 victory over Newcastle.
Ayew, a son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele, also scored for the Swans in an opening-round draw at defending champions Chelsea last weekend.
Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez claimed his third league goal in two outings with the winner as Leicester City triumphed 2-1 at West Ham United.
African stars in the Premier League:
Andre Ayew (Swansea City)
Ayew's smooth adaptation to life in England continued as he scored his second goal in two games in Swansea's 2-0 win over Newcastle United. The former Marseille midfielder claimed Swansea's second goal in the 52nd minute at the Liberty Stadium, heading in a cross from Jefferson Montero.
Mame Biram Diouf (Stoke City)
Senegal striker Diouf completed a late Stoke fightback with an 83rd-minute header to earn his side a 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur. Having twice been thwarted by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Diouf prevailed at the third attempt with a glancing header from substitute Stephen Ireland's left-wing cross.
Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City)
Mahrez preserved his place at the top of the Premier League scoring chart by claiming his third goal of the campaign in his side's 2-1 victory at West Ham United. The Algerian scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 38th minute, meeting Marc Albrighton's cut-back with an unerring left-foot finish.
Yaya Toure (Manchester City)
Ivory Coast international Toure followed up a goal-scoring performance in City's 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion with a dominant midfield display as his side overpowered champions Chelsea to win 3-0. He set up Sergio Aguero's 31st-minute opener with a wall pass and forced visiting goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to save a curling shot in the second half.
