Sun stitch up Andy Carroll after Swansea batter West Ham

Swansea 4 – West Ham 1

If West Ham get relegated this season, Saturday’s defeat at Swansea could be key.

Swansea continued their remarkable upturn in form last weekend as they beat the Hammers 4-1 at the Liberty Stadium.

Having looked nailed-on to go down a few months ago, Swansea are now level on 30 points with West Ham.

Ki Sung-Yueng fired Swansea ahead after just eight minutes, while slack defending allowed Mike van der Hoorn to head in a second in the 32nd minutes.

Andy King’s first Swansea goal killed off West Ham at the start of the second half. Jordan Ayew scored a fourth from the spot.

Michail Antonio scored a consolation for the Irons.

Sun stitch up Andy Carroll

On Monday morning, West Ham striker Andy Carroll has been targeted by the Sun.

It’s been another rough season for Carroll, who has been sidelined for the majority of the campaign.

He’s currently out with an ankle problem, and he wasn’t available for the Swansea match.

Yet the Sun have painted Carroll in a negative light by reporting on the striker’s night out after Swansea. The Sun reported:

West Ham crock Andy Carroll supped pints into the early hours — before his teammates slumped to a thrashing.

Fan Luke Neat, 18, who spotted him, said: “It looked like they had had a few. All his efforts should be put into getting fit instead of boozing.”

David Gold confronts angry West Ham fans

Perhaps the bigger story for Hammers fans after Swansea is what happened to the club’s co-owner David Gold.

Gold was spotted leaving the Swansea game early by a handful of Hammers fans.

The supporters filmed their angry confrontation with Gold.
