Swansea City 1-1 West Ham United - REPORT

On his 50th league appearance for the club, Carroll gave the Hammers the lead in the first half with a fine strike into the top corner.

But the home side got their equaliser late on when Bafetimbi Gomis’s header hit the post and the ball went off Noble and over the line.

The Hammers – who had Neil McDonald in charge as Sam Allardyce was ill with a chest infection – began poorly and were restricted to long-range efforts.

Swansea created few chances themselves but should have taken the lead when Nathan Dyer cut the ball back to Gylfi Sigurdsson whose drive was straight at Adrian.

And the Hammers made them pay for that miss just before half-time when Carroll held off his marker to score his fourth goal of the season.

The second half had more end-to-end action and James Collins should have increased the visitors’ lead but sent his header wide from a corner, while Gomis blazed over from 12 yards with the goal at his mercy.

But the Frenchman made amends when he rose to nod in a corner which went in off Noble to make it 1-1.

West Ham had chances to win it late on but Lukasz Fabianski pulled off some fine saves as both sides shared the spoils.
