King savours Hammers triumph

The midfielder was making only his second appearance for the Swans since joining on loan from Leicester City in January, and was named in the XI for the first time by Carlos Carvalhal.

King is ineligible to play in the FA Cup, and was an unused substitute against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League last weekend.

However, he made up for lost time with a fine performance against the Hammers, and capped it off with the third goal of the afternoon as the Swans recorded a comprehensive victory.

“It was a really pleasing afternoon for me,” King said. “It’s a big victory and, hopefully, we can kick on now.

“First and foremost, I was delighted to get the three points, but to top it off with a goal was brilliant. 

“I just wanted to get out there and help the team. There’s a really good team spirit and I wanted to try to show what I can do. Thankfully, it all went to plan today.”
