Swansea City 1-1 West Ham United – Premier League – 10th January 2015
Swansea fought from a goal down to secure a share of the points with West Ham on Saturday.
The hosts impressed from the start with both Bafetimbi Gomis and and Gylfi Sigurdsson going close. However, a moment of magic from Andy Carroll gave the visitors the lead just before the break. Controlling a Stewart Downing cross on his chest, the big hitman deftly turned before deftly firing into the top corner.
In the second-period, the Swans struggled to get back into the game. However, the introduction of subs Marvin Emnes and Modou Barrow give the hosts some much needed energy up front and the goal eventually came. Mark Noble was the unlucky man for the Hammers, directing Gomis’ effort into his own goal on 74 minutes, an OG which ultimately give both sides a share of the points.
Swansea go ninth with West Ham two places better off.
