Rondon bags a hat-trick
- December 15, 2016

Three headers sunk Swansea and Tony Pulis' side have now won four of their last six games and, although Pulis refuses to discuss Europe, it remains a growing possibility. Bradley's side were comfortable and dictated the play but needed to be saved by Lukasz Fabianski nine minutes before the break.
