West Ham have three consecutive wins in their sights as they host Cardiff outfit Swansea on Sunday night (AEST).

With impressive wins over the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool already this season, the Hammers have somewhat been the surprise packets of the EPL. Sitting in fifth spot, Sam Allardyce’s men can break into the top three if they can see off Swansea. The combination of attacking duo Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho has been a big part of the Londoners’ success. They’ve got eight goals and five assists between them already, however Sakho is expected to remain on the sidelines for this clash with a back injury. That has paved the way for tall forward Andy Carroll to fill the void, and he’s  to score first on Sunday.

Like their opponents, Swansea have produced a couple of eyebrow-raising performances this season. Their campaign started with an away win over Manchester United, and have since managed wins over the likes of Arsenal, Leicester and QPR. Worryingly for Gary Monk’s side, they’ve failed to win away from home since the opening day, registering three losses and two draws on the road. However when you have former Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson on your side, anything is possible. The Swans’ midfielder has notched eight assist and two goals this season, and those stats have him ranked as the fourth best midfielder in the premier league, with only Sanchez, Fabregas and Hazard ahead of him.  

West Ham enter this match as slight favourites and all things point to a Hammers win. The London outfit have tasted defeat on just one occasion at Upton Park this season, whereas Swansea have struggled away from home all season.
