FT - West Ham Utd 3-1 Swansea City


Final score: West Ham United 3-1 Swansea City

FT: The five minutes of added time pass without further incident and the Hammers have won 3-1 to move up to third in the Barclays Premier League table! Just as on Tuesday, they had to come from behind and they did so in some style, with Andy Carroll at the centre of the action. He scored a brace of headers before providing the assist for Diafra Sakho's game-clinching third. Check whufc.com shortly for more reaction from another successful afternoon.

90+2: The Hammers are still pushing for more and Downing picks out Sakho inside the box, but agains Tremmel stands firm by his near post to block.

90: Five minutes of added time will be played to close the game.

89: Almost a fourth as again Carroll causes chaos inside the box from a corner. The ball drops to Sakho at the far post and he can't quite force it hom, with Tremmel blocking at the near post.

87: GOAL! That should seal it. Sakho's been threatening to do this all second half and again his pace gets him away from Richards. He's in on Tremmel and the finish s unerring, as he rifles the shot past the goalkeeper's right hand. 3-1.

86: Swansea also look to their substitutes' bench, as Angel Rangel replaces Nathan Dyer.

85: West Ham's final substitution sees James Collins replace Cheikhou Kouyate.

81: Swansea exert a spell of pressure with three corners in quick succession, but the danger ends when the ball pops out to Bartley on the edge of the box, who fires high and wide.

79: West Ham make their second change of the afternoon - and it's an enforced one - as Jenkinson walks over to the bench holding his leg. Joey O'Brien is his replacement.

78: So nearly game, set and match. Sakho shrugs off Williams' challenge and runs in on goal. He steadies himself and shoots across Fabianski but his shot strikes the base of the far post and flies away. Carroll wanted a pass, but Sakho had every right to shoot there.

77: Lovely stuff from Song who strides forward from midfield, gliding across the park and almost sliding Jenkinson in. Offside, but nearly.

75: Swansea make another change, with Gomis coming on for Montero.

71: Tremmel is ready to come on as the replacement goalkeper now and he's on in former Hammer Leon Britton' place.

68: RED CARD TO SWANSEA. A nightmare couple of minutes for the Swans as Sakho gets the better of Williams to latch onto Carroll's clipped ball forward. Sakho beats Fabianksi to the ball and the goalkeeper blocks off the striker. Sakho is impeded and referee Foy gives the free-kick straight away. Sakho tried to continue and hit the post from an impossibly tough angle. The play had been stopped though and it's a free kick and a red card for the keeper.

66: GOAL!!! West Ham are in front and it's Andy Carroll again! Swansea are still collecting themselves after Sakho's low cross nearly picked out Carroll. Rangel touched behind but there was no saving them from Downing's corner as Carroll is unmarked and Britton can't get back to clear off the line.

65: Richards is not excctly flavour of the month among the Hammers fans at the moment following that incident with Sakho, and he has his pocket picked by Kouyate, leaving him no option but to bring him down on half way.

60: Just like the first half, West Ham are having all the early pressure, But like the first half too, Swansea show they cannot be ignored on the break. Montero can pass to Bony, who has a shooting opportunity from 20 yards. His effort has the required power, but not quite the placement and it kisses the crossbar on the way over.

57: Good stuff from Cresswell as he bursts inside his man down the left hand side and whips an inviting ball across the six yard box. Andy Carroll is lurking at the far post, but the ball is just in front of him and he can't get there.

55: Swansea defender Kyle Bartley gets a talking to from referee Foy after he points an accusatory finger at Kouyate after a challenge on the Senegal man by the touchline.

53: Good work from Sakho in the right channel to hold the ball up, withstand a couple of challenges and then retain possession. Great tenacity, but it comes to nothing in the end as Richards steps in and draws a foul.

50: Routledge goes into the book after tripping Reid as he looked to make a burst in the left channel. That's the first time referee Chris Foy has dipped into his notebook this afternoon.

49: Downing makes tracks down the left and whips in a dangerous cross which causes the visitors problems before Rangel nods clear.

46: A bright start to the second period as Cresswell earns a corner down the left. It comes to nothing but the Hammers will want to keep that attacking threat going.

2.32pm We're back underway and the Hammers have replaced Enner Valencia with Diafra Sakho.

2.31pm The teams make their back out onto the field. It's almost time for the second period.

HT: The referee blows his whistle to signal the end of the first half and the Hammers will be glad to have levelled before the break. After a bright start from the Hammers, Swansea threatened to derail their good work when Wilfried Bony finished off an incisive breakaway. Andy Carroll hit back with the equaliser though, climbing high to direct Jenkinson's cross past Fabianski and it's still all to play for.

45: Two minutes of added time have been signalled.

43: Dangerous moment as Routledge gets in behind Valencia and Cresswell and crosses into the six-yard box. Tomkins is in the right place at the right time to nod away, and Kouyate completes the job, getting clattered by Ki for his troubles.

41: GOAL! Boom. Just what the doctor ordered with time ticking down to the break. Song passes to Jenkinson down the right and his cross back to the far post was perfect. Rangel doesn't stand a chance up against Carroll's power and the No9 gets up to guide a fine header back across Fabianksi and into the far corner of the net. 1-1.

37: Swansea's defenders get in a real muddle, giving Nolan the opportunity to shoot from outside the box. His effort takes a hefty deflection and it's a corner.

35: West Ham have a free kick from deep and the clearance only comes out to Kouyate, who slices at the ball. The Hammers recycle the ball and keep the attack alive. Downing's ball into the area is a beauty, Cresswell's run is too, and his header needs a save from Fabianski.

32: Kouyate is dispossessed in a dangerous area and Swansea are quickly onto the West Ham defence. Bony strikes for goal and is only a few inches away from hitting the target. Thankfully for the Hammers, the ball whistles past the post with Adrian at full stretch.

29: Bony spots a shooting chance from 30 yards when the ball loops down towards his right foot. He swings at it, but doesn't connect properly and the shoot loops away and over the crossbar.

26: At the other end Adrian is called into action to paw away a curling effort from Sigurdsson, who stepped inside Reid before unleashing his shot. The No13 saw it all the way though and got two hands to it to parry the danger.

25: Chance. Cresswell crosses from the left, Carroll rises to nod back and Williams gets a good foot in to divert Valencia's shot over the top. Good block, and then Downing's corner travels all the way through the box with the Swans escaping.

23: West Ham lose the ball high up the pitch and give Swansea the opportunity to break. Bony is making a promising run, but Routledge can't find him and Adrian sweeps up.

19: Goal! West Ham may have been looking the more likely over the last ten minutes, but Swansea have taken the lead with their first structured attack of the game. Montero runs off Jenkinson down the left and Sigurdsson feeds the ball through to him. The Ecuador winger spots Bony in the middle and cuts the ball back for him perfectly to slot home. 1-0 and against the run of play, for sure.

17: So close. Valencia is bundled over 35 yards from goal, giving Stewart Downing a chance to clip the ball into the area. Nolan's run is a clever one and he can shoot for goal, but Fabianski has closed the angles down well and saves.

16: A decent run through midfield from Cheik Kouyate opens up space for Jenkinson down the right. The No18 crosses low first time and Nolan is arriving late, but can't quite wrap his foot around it and the ball travels wide.

14: Swansea venture into Hammers territory for the first time in a few minutes, but Rangel's cross from the right is overhit and floats out harmlessly for a goal kick. He had Bony to aim for then, but didn't give his striker a chance.

12: Corner down the Irons down the right and Downing's inswinging corner looks to be a dangerous one, but Williams rises strongly to head clear.

9: Handball shouts - more from the crowd than the players - as Carroll controls a pass from Song and releases Jenkinson down the right. Jenkinson's cross doesn't beat first man Richards, and the supporters' claims for a penalty go unheeded by referee Chris Foy.

6: Carroll flicks on and Valencia looks like having a sight of goal as he gets the wrong side of Rangel. However, the striker cannot quite get it under control in time and his eventual shot is blocked. The Hammers starting to get on the front foot though.

5: West Ham build down the right hand side this time and the cross is a high, hanging one. Carroll tries to get on the end of it by the edge of the area but can't connect.

2: Aaron Cresswell and Alex Song combine nicely down the left hand side as the Hammers look for a route to attack, but Cresswell strays offside before Song returns the ball and Swansea can clear from the free-kick.

1.30pm Bubbles rings out again and that means kick-off is upon us. Come on you Irons!

1.27pm First the teams come together for a mixed team photo to make the start of the Football Remembers events - the anniversary of the Christmas Truce game.

1.25pm Kevin Nolan leads the Hammers out and we're nearly ready for action.

1.20pm West Ham have a good recent record against the Swans, having defeated them at the Boleyn Ground in each of the last two seasons. Andy Carroll was on target in a 1-0 win in 2012/13, while a Kevin Nolan double defeated them last season.

1.10pm The Hammers would go up to third place in the Premier League table with victory today and Big Sam's men are in terrific form having defeated Newcastle and West Brom in the last week.

12.45pm So two changes for the Hammers with some real selection dilemmas for the manager. Mark Noble misses isn't quite ready for a return, but the squad was fully fit and Big Sam has brought Alex Song and Enner Valencia back into the starting XI.

Mauro Zarate and Morgan Amalfitano are the men to miss out. Let us know what you make of the selection using the hashtag #WHUSWA on Twitter.
