Midfielder Sigurdsson is Swansea’s second highest goalscorer in the Premier League this term with seven strikes – one behind Andre Ayew.

Relegation threatened Swansea City managed to pick up just two Premier League points from their four fixtures last month. But despite that poor record; there was one man who won that vital tally almost single-handedly – Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The 26-year-old, who has 35 international caps for Iceland and is set to star in his country’s first-ever UEFA European Championships in France later this summer, is the Welsh outfit’s second highest goalscorer in the English top-flight this season with seven strikes, only behind summer signing Andre Ayew (8).

Midfielder Sigurdsson, who rejoined the Liberty Stadium outfit from Premier League rivals Tottenham back in July 2014, scored both of his side’s opening goals against West Brom and Crystal Palace in February’s opening 1-1 stalemates.

The month was rounded off by narrow defeats to Southampton and Tottenham; but without Sigurdsson’s February brace, Francesco Guidolin’s men would have lost five league games on the bounce, leaving the Swans sweating over their top-flight status.

Then again; Wednesday night’s 2-1 victory at Arsenal certainly erased some of those fears!
