RING IN THE NEW YEAR

Review the best shots from the Barclays Premier League.

Danny Graham scored a stoppage-time equalizer to earn Swansea a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday, delivering more heartache to the visitors after their disastrous run of results over the festive period.

After conceding 15 goals in three big losses over Christmas, relegation-threatened Villa looked on course to secure a relieving victory when Christian Benteke converted an 84th-minute penalty at the Liberty Stadium.

However, Graham provided the last touch in a goalmouth scramble four minutes into injury time to grab a deserved point for the Welsh hosts.

Swansea dominated the first half but its opener by Wayne Routledge in the ninth minute was canceled out by Andreas Weimann just before halftime for Villa, which fielded a starting team with an average age of 23.
