Gomis netted his third goal in as many games in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Sunderland.

Gomis latched on to a through ball from Kyle Naughton and cleverly slid it home to make it 1-0 just before the break. The Frenchman is on a roll right now but could find it hard to continue the run against a stingy Manchester United defence next Sunday.

Gomis scored his second goal of the season in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Newcastle United.

Gomis slotted the ball home in the ninth minute following a sumptuous through-ball from Jonjo Shelvey. The French forward has started the season on a roll and will want to continue his run at Sunderland next weekend.

Gomis rattled off five shots, drew three fouls and scored a penalty kick in the 55th minute of Swansea's 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Saturday.

The Frenchman gave the Chelsea back-line fits all day, as he had several other scoring chances ruled offside and drew the penalty that earned Thibaut Courtois a red card. Gomis came into his own last season after the departure of Wilfried Bony, and he looks to be picking up where he left off as the main man up front. Swansea will host Newcastle next weekend.

Gomis started just 21 games for Swansea last season, but managed to score eight goals after a late-season push.

The Frenchman's ascendance corresponded with the departure of teammate Wilfried Bony, as he buried eight of his nine strikes in the second half of the season, including five goals in the final six matches. Gomis is under contract with Swansea until 2018 and will be back as the go-to striker next season.

Gomis (hamstring) netted his sixth goal of the Premier League season against Arsenal on Monday despite starting the match off the bench.

Gomis had been off the pitch since Apr. 11 with a hamstring injury so manager Garry Monk decided to err on the side of caution by using him as a substitute in just the 74th minute of the match. Despite the short time on the pitch, the 29-year-old proved his position as Swansea's biggest threat to score in any given match Monday. He'll look to reenter the starting XI against Manchester City on Sunday.

Gomis (hamstring) will play in Monday's match against Arsenal, according to manager Garry Monk.

Gomis has been off the pitch since Apr. 11 but returned to training and will almost certainly retain his spot in the starting XI. His reinsertion back into the lineup is timely since fellow forward Nelson Oliveira (ankle) is likely done for the remainder of the season.

Gomes could return from a hamstring injury to face Arsenal next Monday after being out of action for almost a month, reports the Daily Mail.

The forward increased his training this week, and hopes to be available to face Arsenal. He has been out since Swansea's draw with Everton in mid-April.

Gomis has been ruled out for 3-to-4 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury last weekend against Everton, the club's official website reports.

Gomis has been a consistent starter for the Swans ever since they sold Wilfried Bony to Manchester City in January, but they'll now have to likely go with Nelson Oliviera, who recently recovered from an ankle injury, or Marvin Emnes, who came on for Gomis in last weekend's match.
