Kick Off – 15.00pm Saturday 7th May 2016

West Ham take on Swansea City at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday in the Premier League, as the home side look to continue their bid for a European place.

West Ham recorded a 3-0 win at West Brom last time out to keep their dream alive of European football next season. The Irons took a first half lead through midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate, before captain Mark Noble scored a brace to give the Hammers a comfortable win.

The win means that Slaven Bilic’s team are sixth in the table and just five points behind Manchester City, with a game in-hand on the Citizens. The side from the east end have now recorded consecutive wins and could very easily capitalise on any slip-ups from City in their final games of the campaign.

Swansea have very little to play for this season, but produced a creditable 3-1 victory over Liverpool last time out in the Premier League. Andre Ayew and Jack Cork struck for the Welsh side, before Christian Benteke got a goal back for the visitors in the second half. However, Ayew scored his brace soon afterwards to give the Swans the three points.

The Welsh side are now 13th place in the Premier League and can rest easy knowing that their place in the English top-flight is secured for next season.

Swansea have won just once in their last seven away games in the Premier League.

Team Selection And News

West Ham have a fully-fit squad heading into this clash and Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is likely to name an unchanged side from last time out.

The visitors are close to having a fully-fit squad, but midfielder Leroy Fer and striker Alberto Paloschi are doubts for this clash. The Swans may also name an unchanged team from last time out.

Possible West Ham Team Selection

Adrian, Antonio, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Lanzini, Kouyate, Noble, Payet, Sakho, Carroll

Possible Swansea Team Selection

Fabianski, Rangel, Amat, Fernandez, Taylor, Cork, Britton, Routledge, Sigurdsson, Montero, Ayew

Match Prediction

The Hammers seems to have hit form in the last few games and will be desperate to win this game in the chase for Champions League football for next season. The visitors meanwhile have little to play for, so I believe the Irons will record a win in this one.
