Angel Rangel will celebrate his first Premier League goal even if the FA’s dubious goal committee rule his opener as an own goal.
The Swans were ahead at the Liberty against West Ham after Rangel’s low cross found the net following a deflection off West Ham keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen in the 21st minute.
Opinions were split on whether the Spaniard would be awarded the goal, but he’s in no doubt.
“It was my goal. It was a half-shot half-cross,” he said with a smile. “There was no deflection from a defender, only the keeper.
“But I will take it. I want my first Premier League goal, so I’ll claim it even if they don’t give it to me.”
Rangel had plenty more to celebrate as the Swans ran out 3-0 victors at the Liberty.
It meant Michael Laudrup’s squad boasted a perfect six points from six after two games.
The Swans style even got top praise from Rangel’s fellow countryman Cesc Fabregas, who tweeted during the game: “I love the way Swansea plays... Respect.”
And Rangel lauded his team-mates for their fine start to the campaign.
“From a player like Cesc to make comments like that is a great compliment for us,” he added. “It shows that Swansea City are a team everyone knows about now.
“We haven’t had a start like this for many, many years. But it’s great as we are scoring plenty of goals and have two cleansheets already.
“It’s a great start and we have to go game by game, but we couldn’t have asked for much more so far.”
