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 league games.

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' West Ham.

Ki was influential in the second goal, with his cross reaching Dutch defender Mike van der Hoorn who scored with a stooping header.

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.
