Swansea City 4-1 West Ham United

The South-Wales club hammered West Ham United 4-1 at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung who was heavily linked with a move to West Ham in the January transfer window opened the scoring for the Swans in the 8th minute driving home a shot into Adrian’s bottom left corner.

Twenty minutes later West Ham centre-back Winston Reid received treatment on the pitch for 10 minutes after appearing to twist his knee while trying to block a Swansea shot and was taken off the pitch on a stretcher. From the resulting corner, Swansea centre-back Mike van der Horn scored to make it 2-0.

During the second-half on-loan Swansea midfielder Andy King scored from yet another corner and to compile further misery to West Ham Jorden Ayew scored from the penalty spot after brother Andre Ayew (who was sold by West Ham during the January transfer window) was tripped by Cheikou Kouyate.

West Ham did, however, manage to score in the 78th minute as substitute Michail Antonio volleyed home in front of the traveling away fans.

West Ham manager David Moyes told the BBC that “We had no intensity in our play, we thought we could just stroll about.”
