Past meetings: Swans v West Ham

28th February 2018

​​​​​​​As the Swans get set to face West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday (3pm), we look back at some previous encounters between the clubs.

Here we recall past matches in the Premier League and the FA Cup.

 

Swans 1 West Ham 1

Premier League – January 10, 2015

A Mark Noble own goal saw the Swans extend their impressive home record in the 2014-15 campaign as they fought back to claim a draw.

West Ham were enjoying a fine season, with talk of a place in the Champions League doing the rounds as Sam Allardyce turned the London club into a formidable force.

Allardyce missed the trip to SA1 due to a chest infection, but his side took the lead through Andy Carroll’s floated finish.

Yet the Swans deservedly claimed a point when Bafetimbi Gomis’s header was turned into the net by Noble.

Premier League – August 25, 2012

The Swans maintained their impressive start to life under Michael Laudrup as they eased past West Ham at the Liberty.

Laudrup’s reign had begun with a stunning 5-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on the opening day of the season.

And the Swans followed that victory up with another impressive performance in their first home game of the new campaign.

Angel Rangel opened the scoring on 20 minutes, then Michu marked his home debut with a goal after James Collins’ underhit backpass.

Danny Graham then finished off a sweeping Swans move in the second half to seal a resounding win.

"The fans always enjoy it when you win, but we have a creative style here that we have continued with some small tactical changes,” Laudrup said.

“We want to play like Swansea did in the last four or five years.

FA Cup – January 13, 1999

The fourth-tier Swans had almost claimed a famous win at Upton Park after being drawn away to top-flight side West Ham, but Jason Smith’s goal was cancelled out by a late Julian Dicks equaliser.

That result meant a replay at Vetch Field, where the Swans would enjoy one of their great cup nights.

The Hammers side included stellar names such as Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Trevor Sinclair and local lad John Hartson.

But it was John Hollins’s Swans who emerged victorious thanks to Martin Thomas’s goal and a fine defensive effort.
