Carlos Carvalhal: 'West Ham Couldn't Handle Swansea's Rock And Roll'

West Ham United manager David Moyes has warned his team to expect a hard test when they travel to face a resurgent Swansea City in Saturday's Premier League clash as both teams fight to avoid relegation.

In his first league start since rejoining the Swans from the Hammers in January, the 28-year-old was a constant threat at Liberty Stadium, setting up three of his side's four goals in a 4-1 win.

"It was rock and roll here at the Liberty", he told reporters.

'We are progressing, it was an important victory.

Three minutes after the break Andy King scored his first goal since joining on loan from Leicester City at another corner.

Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal: "I am delighted, I am proud of my players". We were hungry from the first whistle to the last and even when we were comfortably in front at 3-0 and 4-1, we still looked hungry to improve our goal difference even further.

It was Swansea who started the brighter though and they grabbed the lead after just eight minutes, when Ki Seung-Yung was given too much space on the edge of the box and his speculative shot took a slight deflection as Adrian looked slow to get down, allowing it to slip inside his post.

Manuel Lanzini says his partnership with Marko Arnautovic in West Ham's attack reminds him of his productive on-pitch relationship with Dimitri Payet.

West Ham manager David Moyes: "We conceded from two corners and a penalty".

"We are doing well in our home games and I think the challenge will be for the fans also".

Play was stopped for nearly 10 minutes as medics treated Reid who got his foot caught in the ground and fell to the ground.

Substitute Michail Antonio grabbed a late consolation but the result leaves West Ham with just one win from its past six games and serious defensive frailties - not helped by Reid's serious-looking injury - to address if it is to avoid the drop. "He's in the dressing room and is talking, so he's got no problem that way, but we need to get his knee checked to see exactly what the problem is", Moyes said. "He's awake and I don't know if a scan will get done tonight".
