FT: Swansea 3 West Ham 0

FULL TIME. Swansea 3 West Ham 0.

90+2
Agustien looks for Graham this time, but the striker narrowly slips offside after a much more organised push up from the West Ham defence.

90
Three minutes of added time to be played.

90
Michu lets Agustien down with a poor ball, but as Graham collects, he wins a throw-in to the frustration of Demel. whose performance has been a high point for West Ham today.

89
As Sam Allardyce cuts a frustrated figure on the sidelines, Swansea continue to maintain possession and they'll be happy to do that until the final whistle blows.

87
Davies makes a charge down the left but Moore is caught unaware by Collins, before Dyer gets the ball down and drives a firm shot inches wide of the post.

86
Demel skips past Davies but Williams comes across to hack away from the winger as West Ham win a corner.

85
Agustien searches for Moore, but Reid does well to get his body in the way, before the midfielder ends up winning the ball back impressively off Jarvis.

84
Taylor exits for Swansea with young full-back Davies entering the fray.

83
Jarvis' ball is cleared by Williams as West Ham look to exert some pressure, before becoming prime for a counter attack as Reid handballs to prevent a Graham run down the centre.

81
Routledge comes off to a hero's reception with Moore taking his place up front.

79
Comfortable passing ensures a spell of possession for Swansea, who have really struck West Ham dumb today, until Vaz Te gets in the way of a through ball from Agustien to Graham.

77
It's better from West Ham, as Demel delivers from the right with Vaz Te only narrowly missing out on a shooting opportunity at the far post.

76
Dyer nips the ball from Collins far too easily but his effort is someway over the bar in the end.

75
First change of the game for the hosts as De Guzman comes off for Agustien.

74
De Guzman skips past Collins with ease but comes unstuck against McCartney after a penetrating run through the centre.

73
Swansea's play is simply terrific as they knock the ball round in the final third with West Ham admirably pressing but coming nowhere near to knocking the Swans out of their stride.

71
Maiga carelessly gives the ball away and a period of underwhelming West Ham attack comes to an end. It's been very disappointing from the Hammers today.

70
Diame makes way as Diarra takes his place for West Ham.

69
Yellow card for Chico who hacks down Vaz Te in a dangerous position. It's a West Ham free-kick but Vaz Te's effort is saved well by Vorm.

68
Graham keeps the ball in play from the delivery of Dyer, but the attack is neutralised after good defending from Reid.

67
Brilliant work from Dyer, who hounds McCartney mercilessly before winning his side a free-kick.

65
This could easily become a repeat of the mauling QPR received at Swansea's hands. West Ham just can't contain the hosts at all and Michael Laudrup will be delighted at his side's performance so far.

64
What a goal. It's simply divine from Swansea as the pass the ball up from the back with Routledge's cut-back from the byline finding Graham who finished with aplomb.

64
GOAL! Graham scores!

62
Cole is replaced by Maiga in a second West Ham change.

61
West Ham are living on the edge for a living at the moment, as Michu, Graham and Routlegde all have chances in the area before a corner is conceded.

59
Collins' day goes from bad to worse as he picks up a booking for a cynical tackle on Routledge.

58
Cole knocks down Jarvis' cross beautifully but Vaz Te is caught out by the pace of the ball and Vorm does well to claim before the striker can make contact.

57
WIth West Ham's defence being run ragged, their attackers look to link up but Jarvis' delayed cross from the right is headed out by Chico.

56
It's happened again! This time it's Dyer who finds Graham, but the striker is incredibly unlucky to see his shot from 25 yards bounce wide of the post.

55
Britton this time looks for a defence-cutting pass to Graham but the striker was out of position and Collins collects. Swansea are looking increasingly threatening going forward at the moment.

54
A huge let-off for West Ham as the Hammers' defence crumbles with Graham beating Collins to the ball as Jasselainen rushed out, the result being the striker's head bouncing narrowly wide.

53
Slightly harsh yellow card for Nolan, who was perfectly entitled to tackle Britton but was a tad late in the process,

52
Routledge plays a divine ball into Graham but the striker is marginally offside latching on to it. The ball from the nifty midfielder was simply brilliant originally.

51
For the second time in two minutes West Ham go for the spectacular as Cole looks to acrobatically fire in Nolan's knock down before Vorm punches the danger away.

51
The corner results in a West Ham free-kick after Chico is penalised for a push on Nolan.

50
Michu and Britton link up to find Graham, who was dragged slighly wide fronm the pass, but the striker does well to earn a corner with a 20-yard shot.

49
A lovely passing move from West Ham results in Jarvis crossing in, and just as Vaz Te was going for a spectacular overhead, Williams leaps to head away.

47
Vaz Te immediately hussles Vorm into a nervy clearance, and alongside Cole you'd back West Ham to cause far more problems in the second half.

46
West Ham kick off the second half.

There's a change for West Ham at the break as Vaz Te comes on for Tomkins.

James Long writes: "Not surprised that it was Jaaskelainen and Collins who made the mistakes. Jussi is not the player he was a couple of years ago and as good as Collins is in the air he is almost as bad with the ball. They were the 2 new signings I was most concerned about. I don't think West Ham are out of this. Apart from the two gifted goals we looked quite comfortable dealing with Swansea and Swansea have been very lucky not to concede from one of West Ham's crosses. They certainly look fragile from crosses."

Two defensive catastrophes see Swansea lead 2-0 at the break and Sam Allardyce will surely have some menacing words for his side in his team talk. Keep the messages coming in to jack.woodfield@bskyb.com or @JWoodfield365

HALF TIME. Swansea 2 West Ham 0.

45+2
The second corner lands on the head of Cole and Taylor clears off the line! A really strong end to the half by West Ham.

45+1
Nervy moments as Collins wins the corner from a Jarvis header, before Nolan's stab at goal deflects behind off Rangel.

45
Three added minutes to be played.

44
Jarvis crosses in from the right but Michu's tall frame gives him the advantage against Noble and the big man plays the ball to Britton as Swansea regain possesion.

43
Cole drops deep to pick up the ball, with Jarvis then played in down the right, earning a throw-in for his troubles against Taylor.

42
Cole has been severely isolated as McCartney fails to find him with a long ball upfield, and Williams, who is almost surprised, ends up with the ball at his feet.

40
Routledge is performing marvellously as he links up with Graham and Britton, the midfielder really looking a handful so far.

38
Chico and McCartney have a little wrestle but despite Chico keeping the ball in he concedes a free-kick in the process. Moments later, Cole is booked for a tackle on Chico.

37
Routledge continues to impress as he plays in Taylor, the left-back deciding to have a pop as Jaaskelainen tips the ball over to concede a corner.

36
Jarvis drifts a delightful ball from the right but no a single West Ham body is lurking at the back post and Williams ends up with a simple clearance.

35
What a save from Vorm. Jarvis fires a volley at goal from an incredible angle, the Swansea keeper parrying impressive in what was the Hammers' best chance so far by some way.

34
Swansea have slowed down the pace somewhat as they look to gradually press forward, until De Guzman loses control and ends up making the umpteenth foul of the game on Noble.

32
A Reid free-kick lands in Jarvis' feet but the winger isn't expecting it and Williams ends up making a crucial tackle in the six-yard box.

31
A Jarvis free-kick close to the byline is somehow parried away by Vorm under a sea of bodies, but West Ham are displaying a new vigour as they seek to get back into the match.

29
It's a howler from Collins who passes back to Jasselainen awfully, with Michu pouncing before excellently poking the ball past the helpless West Ham keeper. 2-0 Swansea!

29
GOAL! Michu scores!

28
Williams' long ball from the back to Graham is headed away by Collins, before Nolan takes a tumble in winning a throw-in for West Ham.

27
Things are getting rather heated now as Nolan slides in on Michu, the two squaring up after, and now a Swansea free-kick is awarded.

26
Chico receives a warning for a lunge on Jarvis, as the Hammers push up the pitch with a free-kick 15 yards closer to Swansea'a goal.

25
Michu goes in recklessly on Tomkins and the defender goes down in agony, perhaps a little falsely, but it's a West Ham free-kick regardless.

24
Noble is penalised for a tackle on Michu and Swansea again play short and look for an opening in the final third.

22
A Hammers free-kick taken by Noble is expertly parried by Vorm, who is fouled in the process by an over-exuberrant Reid.

20
The Dyer-Rangel link-up had been threatening for a while and McCartney switches off as Rangel zips past him before firing into the six-yard box with Jaaskelainen's attempt to parry ending up with the ball in the net. 1-0 to Swansea!

20
GOAL! Jaaskelainen scores an own goal!

18
Diame finds Jarvis over the top of Rangel but Swansea contain the attack through the centre and Taylor ends up making the tackle as Cole prepared to shoot.

17
West Ham clear and Chico's ball into the box results in Jaaskelainen taking control.

16
Routledge's wonderful ball with the outside of his foot comes inches away from clipping the head of Graham but Tomkins beats him to it and it's a Swansea corner.

15
Dyer finds Rangel on the overlap, the right back drifting a good ball into the box but there's enough West Ham defenders in front of Michu and Collins clears away.

14
Really nice stuff from West Ham as their midfielde play the ball around superbly. Jarvis then looks to pick out Reid with a cross-field ball but it lands safely out of play.

12
Reid collides with Diame as both men went for the same ball and the former will now trott off, such is the rule of the head injury.

11
West Ham clear through Tomkins but the ball is still with the hosts as they impose their passing game, before Dyer's pass into Graham is lunged into by Collins who clears the danger.

10
First corner of the game falls to Swansea as Dyer fires a shot from the edge of the area which clips the back of McCartney.

9
A poor tackle from Diame on De Guzman results in a Swansea free-kick, with Michu trying the one-two with Graham but his pass overran slightly into Jaaskelainen's arms.

8
Demel holds up play on the right side as West Ham show their passing ability by calmly playing back to Jaaskelainen as Swansea press well to force the Hammers away from goal.

7
Tomkins goes in hard on Dyer but no foul is given. The home fans are incensed but Rangel wins the ball back to a loud cheer.

6
Swansea maintain possession in their own half but Michu is dispossessed by Noble. West Ham can't fashion an attack though and Taylor regains control of the ball.

4
Nolan again looks to exert some influence through the centre, but Williams steps up at the right time to deny Cole a path through to goal.

3
Swansea get the ball down, but Graham is caught offside trying to latch on to Taylor's through ball from the left.

2
Diame picks up on a poor pass from Rangel and straight away Jarvis shows his threat from the left, dipping in a teasing cross at the far post which Nolan narrowly fails to make contact with.

1
Swansea get the game underway.

Examining the team news further, Scott Sinclair is a notable absentee from the Swansea squad. The winger has told the south Wales club he does not want to sign a new contract and his absence suggests a switch to Manchester City is moving closer. Manager Michael Laudrup sticks with the same starting XI that thumped QPR 5-0, with defender Chico Flores shaking off a groin problem. West Ham include big-money signing Matt Jarvis while Sam Allardyce boosts his backline by bringing in James Tomkins.

Adrian Samuel writes: "It's going to be a tough game as West Ham are a big physical team and we are the opposite but I'm going to go for 2-0 to Swansea, Micha and Graham on the scoreboard. Expect a loud atmosphere."

1229
Confidence from the other side of the ground now as Luke Greaves tweets: "I think it will be 2-0 to Swansea, simply because of their pure excellence recently."

1228
Alan Hayward gets us underway, writing: "I'm disappointed that Vaz te has been dropped just because Jarvis is strait into the side! I think we will give Swansea a 3-0 stuffing with Nolan getting two and Maiga finishing off in the last 15 minutes."

The man in the middle today is Martin Atkinson (W Yorkshire).

West Ham: Jaaskelainen, Reid, Tomkins, Collins, McCartney, Jarvis, Nolan, Noble, Diame, Demel, Cole. Subs: Henderson, Maynard, Maiga, Vaz Te, Taylor, O'Brien, Diarra.

Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Taylor, Britton, de Guzman, Michu, Dyer, Routledge, Graham. Subs: Tremmel, Tate, Moore, Dobbie, Agustien, Gower, Davies.

Here are the teams...
