Egypt’s winger Ramadan Sobhi created a goal to help Stoke City beat Swansea City 3-1 in the English Premier League on Monday.

Two goals from Wilfried Bony, his first since joining on loan from Manchester City in August, helped resurgent Stoke land a third straight league victory against struggling Swansea.

Ivory Coast striker Bony was on target in the third and 73rd minutes, both goals created by his former Swansea team mate Joe Allen.

Stoke also hit the woodwork three times in the first half, twice through Charlie Adam and once by Marko Arnautovic.

Ramadan Sobhi, who appeared as a first-half substitute, got Stoke's second after fantastic composure and footwork to beat his man; Swansea defender Alfie Mawson, who scored into his own net 10 minutes after halftime.

Wayne Routledge grabbed the only goal for the visitors in the eighth minute.

Stoke's victory helped them climb five places to 12th in the table, with 12 points from 10 games. Swansea remained second from bottom, three points ahead of Sunderland.

Sobhi, who joined Stoke from Egyptian giants Ahly for a fee believed to be £5 million in the summer, has made three Premier League appearances so far.
