Ogbonna: We need to move on to Swansea

Angelo Ogbonna says the Hammers will learn from the experience of defeat at Liverpool as they prepare for next weekend’s trip to Swansea City.

The Swans dropped back into the relegation zone on Saturday as they suffered a defeat at Brighton by the same 4-1 scoreline as the Hammers faced on Merseyside.

Ogbonna is determined to ensure his team tighten up again and extend the gap between themselves and the South Wales side when they meet at the Liberty Stadium.

“I think we started the game well at Liverpool and the first half was good,” he explained. “But they are fantastic – Liverpool played a good game with pace. I think 4-1 was too much though.

“We went to Anfield to play our game, and we’re still positive of course. Now we have to focus on next week’s game at Swansea.

“We have to forget the Liverpool game and look forward. It’s an important one next week, we are focused on improving our position in the table and every game is important to get the big results.”
