West Ham v Swansea City

West Ham United will be determined to bounce back from their recent Premier League defeat when they host a Swansea City side looking to do the same.

After a slow start to the season, which featured three consecutive defeats against Manchester United, Southampton, and Newcastle, the Irons recovered with a win over Huddersfield and a draw away at West Brom.

However, a recent defeat to Tottenham has put the pressure back on manager Slaven Bilic and his troops, who will be champing at the bit to get back to winning ways at home.

The Hammers beat the Swans twice last season, but Bilic doesn't read too much into that fact, telling his press conference: “That we beat them twice last season – it means something, but on the other hand it doesn’t mean a thing just before the start of the game!”

Meanwhile, the Swans also suffered a defeat in their last fixture against Watford, who claimed a 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium, and will be aiming to react positively on the road.

Paul Clement's charges have been inconsistent so far this campaign, three defeats, two goalless draws and one win. Their major concern has been in front of goal, where they have converted only three goals in six top-flight fixtures.

Clement told his pre-match press conference: "We have worked on some things this week and I want to play a positive line-up on Saturday. We need to be better going forward and we are working at that."

In team news, West Ham are still missing Pedro Obiang, but will be able to call upon Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio, who have passed fitness tests.

The Swans don't have fresh injury concerns but Nathan Dyer, Kyle Bartley, and Ki Sung-Yeung are all out of contention with knocks.
