Swansea City continue revival with 4-1 crushing of West Ham United

Swansea City's revival continued on Saturday with a 4-1 thrashing of West Ham United in their relegation clash earning Carlos Carvalhal's side their fourth win in six Premier League games.

"There are games where you must listen to the music of the opponent. We made West Ham dance to our music and it was rock and roll," said Carvalhal.

A low shot into the corner from South Korean Ki Sung-yueng put the Swans ahead in the eighth minute and it was to get worse for David Moyes's West Ham.

Between the goals, West Ham lost defender Winston Reid, who was put in a neck brace and taken off on a stretcher after suffering what appeared to be a head injury in a goalmouth scramble.

Three minutes into the second half, Andy King added the third for Swansea after the Hammers failed to clear a corner and then a Jordan Ayew penalty made it 4-0 to make sure of a seventh straight home win in all competitions.

Michail Antonio scored a consolation for the visitors in the 78th minute. With the win, Swansea move above West Ham, on goal difference, into 13th place.
