Kingsley delighted with perfect record
8th May 2016
Stephen Kingsley was delighted to maintain his perfect Swans record following Francesco Guidolin's side's 4-1 victory at West Ham on Saturday afternoon.
On a spectacular afternoon at the Boleyn Ground, the young Scotsman made it three wins out of three Premier League appearances, after featuring in Swansea's crucial wins over Arsenal and Aston Villa in March.
"It's a stat I am very proud of," said Kingsley. "Hopefully I can be involved in the last game of the season next weekend against Manchester City and make it four out of four.
"If someone told me at the beginning of the season I would be involved in three wins out of three Premier League games, I would have snapped their arm off.
"I am very proud, but it is just the beginning. Hopefully I can kick on and get more first-team games under my belt."
As was the case in Swansea's victories over Arsenal and Aston Villa, Kingsley once again played a key role in the Swans' impressive showing at the Boleyn Ground.
After Wayne Routledge had opened the scoring, Kingsley delivered a sublime cross to Andre Ayew, who doubled the visitors' advantage in the first half.
"I saw the opportunity to get up the pitch and to get the ball in the box," added the 21-year-old. "I was buzzing to find Andre in the box, and he tucked it away well to extend our lead.
"The boys deserved the win today. We overcame their threats and were brilliant in attack. We linked up well and were excellent.
"But it was definitely not an easy win. A team like West Ham, who are fighting for Champions League football bring up a lot of challenges.
"A lot of work and preparation behind the scenes went in this week because we needed to be ready for them today.
"We were a bit shaky during the first ten minutes, trying to find our feet, but after that we were brilliant."
