MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v West Ham

10th January 2015

The Swans will be looking to return to winning ways when they face West Ham on Saturday (3pm).
Garry Monk's side welcome the Hammers to the Liberty Stadium on the back of just one defeat in five outings.
That defeat came at Anfield at the end of December while the Swans have since drawn with QPR and moved into the fourth round of the FA Cup with victory at Tranmere.
West Ham, meanwhile, enjoyed a fine first half of the season and currently sit seventh - just two points and two places above the Swans.
Sam Allardyce's side also recorded a 3-1 victory against Swansea at Upton Park last month.

Swans boss Garry Monk: "I think they (West Ham) have done very well this season. I watched them against Everton on Tuesday and they played some excellent football.
"They have scored some good goals and have a strong team with a great squad of players."

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce: "We don't concede many late goals, so it was very disappointing to give that away on Monday.
"Conceding is disappointing at any time but to do it in injury-time knowing we'll have to play another game now is even more disappointing."

  • Swansea skipper Ashley Williams is in line to make his 300th appearance for the club
  • The Swans have scored just once in their last three league meetings against West Ham
  • Andy Carroll has scored in his last two appearances against Swansea for the Hammers
  • West Ham have scored more headed goals than any other team in the top flight (14)

  • This is Swansea's best haul of points in their Premier League history after 20 matches (29 points)
