Comments:

League position: 15th West Ham United had now kept three clean sheets in their last four Premier League games. Diafra Sakho scored his first goal in a home game in the Premier League since the last game to be played at Upton Park in May 2016. The Hammers had lost four of their six preceding games so far in this Premier League season. West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic said: "We started well and on the front foot but after that they had much more of the ball and we were losing it with simple passes. It drains the confidence out of the players. We are under pressure and the players feel it, but at least we showed the determination, character and teamwork and that's what gave us the three points today."

Comments:

League position: 18th After four games, this was the first goal that Swansea City had conceded in their away games in this Premier League season. City failed in their attempto to become the fourth team not to concede in any of their first four away games of a Premier League season. Four of the ten games in the Premier League when the winning goal have been scored in the 90th minute or later so far in 2017 had been conceded by the Swans. Swansea City manager Paul Clement said: “Of course I’m concerned. We have five points from seven games and I would have expected better. I would have expected better in terms of points and I would have expected better in terms of performances. Today the performance was better. I don’t feel as angry as I did after Watford and Newcastle, but I am frustrated with the result and to concede so late on.”
