"In this moment we are just below it, but we are progressing".

"I'm 82 years old", Gold said after getting out of his Rolls-Royce.

The Swans found themselves in the lead inside the first 10 minutes when Sung-Yueng Ki opened the scoring with a fine finish before he supplied the cross for Mike van der Hoorn 20 minutes later.

Carlos Carvalhal has joked that West Ham United were "made to dance to our music" during Swansea City's comfortable 4-1 win on Saturday afternoon.

David Moyes' side have won 30 points from 28 games so far this season - they are just three points above the relegation zone.

West Ham boss David Moyes apologised to the supporters and says the players are disappointed with their own performances after a heavy defeat at Swansea. This was very much a performance that had you scratching your head wondering how Swansea found themselves in such a troublesome position.

Meanwhile, Kiwi Winston Reid was stretchered off during West Ham's 4-1 defeat against Swansea.

"We can take more confidence from this win".


Watford beat bottom club West Brom 1-0 at Vicarage Road, where earlier volunteers had helped clear snow to make sure the match went ahead.

The visitors belatedly sparked into life as Marko Arnautovic received the ball on the edge of the box and executed a piece of skill that left two Swansea defenders on the floor, only to send a disappointing shot into the arms of Lukasz Fabianski.

With six minutes of added time played, Mahrez - who nearly left the Foxes for Manchester City during the January transfer window - curled in a free-kick to snatch a point. "We're in for a hard game".

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

"We are more anxious about the injury to his knee than the knock to his head". We've finally got more points than games played, and we're in 13th place.

"We trained at the stadium because the grass is better there, but we did not change too many things", he said.

Swansea sensed blood and they were unlucky not to score a second when Ki's free-kick found its way through to Alfie Mawson yet his cross was turned away for a corner.
