Fabianski looks to be okay to continue after a few neck stretches and takes the free-kick. Carroll is lucky not to have received a second booking for his challenge on the keeper.

63' 

OUCH! Brave goalkeeping from Fabianski to catch the ball from a cross on the edge of his area as he collides with Carroll. The keeper was accidentally clothes-lined by the forward.

Noble, who has been quiet, makes way for Lanzini to make his return from a knee injury.

59' 

Lanzini is preparing to come on, the home side need a spark and the Argentine has shown last season he is capable of that.

57' 

More boos ring out from the Hammers fans as Cresswell mishits a cross and it goes behind the goal.

55' 

Carroll brings down Abraham with a striker's challenge an Swansea have a free-kick 35 yards from goal. Sanches tries a shot and it flies into row Z - an atrocious effort.

Kouyate is booked for a challenge on Sanches, he got the ball but also the player's calf.

52' 

CHANCE! Antonio dinks in a ball to the far post for Carroll but he cannot make any proper contact and it trickles wide. That was agonisingly close.

- 
49' 

West Ham have a free-kick but Cresswell plays it short again to the annoyance of the home crowd.

48' 

CLOSE! Comical from Noble as he makes a hash of a clearance but Hart comes to his rescue to clear the danger. Bad start from the home side.

47' 

Swansea have a corner after Reid slices a clearance. Abraham heads it across goal but Reid hacks it clear with an unmarked Fer lurking in the area.

46' 

No changes made by the Hammers but surely it's only a matter of time before Lanzini is on. Arnautovic is not in the squad due to illness.

45'

KICK OFF: Swansea get the second period underway. Fer is on for Bony.

  • End of 1st Half
45'+2 

HALF TIME: It is 0-0 after a tepid 45 minutes. A few boos rang out among the home fans. West Ham look short of confidence, Swansea look toothless in attack. Expect a few strong words from the managers at the break.

45' 

There will be two added minutes.

43' 

West Ham have a corner after Cresswell's cross is put behind by Fernandez. The set piece is whipped in by Cresswell but Swansea clear.

40' 

Fonte does well to slide in with an important challenge to dispossess Abraham after Bony's through ball.

38' 

The home fans let their feelings be known after West Ham have a free-kick near the halfway line. Carroll is waving his arms for a long ball but Fonte opts to play it short. Plenty of groans at that decision.

37' 

CHANCE! Carroll turns provider and sends in a cross for Ayew whose flicked header is comfortably saved by Fabianski.

35' 

It would not be surprising if there is a tweak in formations at the break, West Ham's 4-4-2 has not yielded much.

31' 

We have had a few goals in the Premier League this afternoon but we are waiting for one here to give the game a much-needed boost.

  • Renato Sanches

SANCHES BOOKED: The midfielder is booked for a reckless challenge on Cresswell. He caught him on the middle of his shin with his follow through, he is a lucky boy as that could have been a red.

28' 

The home fans have been quiet, there's not been much from Bilic's side to inspire them.

26' 

Dreadful delivery from Sanches, he has four players to aim at but its overhit and goes out for a goalkick. The Portuguese playmaker has looked below-par on his return to the side.

25' 

CLOSE! The ball is played towards the Swansea box, Bony heads it on for Abraham who lashes in a volley but its well blocked by Reid and the Hammers clear the danger.

24' 

Ayew is tripped by Kouyate near the corner flag. Carroll's inswinging delivery is flicked on by Ayew but it goes behind for a goalkick.

22' 

We have reached the midway point of the half and there's been few chances to shout about. Both side's defences are having an easy afternoon so far.

21' 

Olsson tries an ambitious effort from all of 20 yards but it was always rising and flies over Hart's crossbar.

-

STAT: Most Premier League goals scored from set-pieces since 2012/13: Spurs (28) Arsenal (21) West Ham (21).

18' 

Swansea have had the lions share of the possession but look a bit toothless in the final third. West Ham look comfortably defensively so far.

16'

Kouyate looks to have an injury to his face after challenging for the ball but no foul is given. He is getting treatment.

14' 

GOOD SAVE! Bony unleashes a drive from 25 yards which Hart does well to parry. The striker had plenty of space but it was a good efffort.

13'

West Ham United have only held the lead for 18 minutes in the Premier League so far this season – only Crystal Palace (0 mins) have been in front for less time.

11' 

A little and large battle between Carroll and Britton. And the striker is penalised for fouling the Swansea skipper during their tussle.

- 
7' 

Bony miscontrols the ball after its threaded through and it ricochets away, the former Manchester City man looks a little short of confidence.

5' 

Mawson does well to put Carroll under pressure and the forward is unable to get his header on target. This is going to be an intriguing battle given Carroll's strength.

4' 

CLOSE! Ayew fires in a low cross for Carroll but Mawson heads it clear. The ball is played back in for Antonio whose volley is brilliantly palmed away by Fabianski.

3' 

Composed start from the visitors. Sanches swings in a cross which is cleared, another ball is played into the box and this time Reid heads it away.

1' 

Swansea, playing in black, have never kept an away clean sheet at West Ham, conceding 74 goals in 31 games.

15:00

Roger East blows his whistle and West Ham get the game underway.

14:55 

Five minutes from kick-off at the London Stadium!

14:50 

Paul Clement said he wanted a "positive line-up" given their impressive away form and he has picked Bony, Abraham and Sanches in the same team for the first time.

14:45 

Lanzini is on the bench after recovering from injury. Antonio is fit to start while Carroll and Ayew are recalled and replace Ogbonna and Arnautovic.

14:40 

WEST HAM XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Reid, Fonte, Creswell, Kouyate, Noble, Antonio, Ayew, Hernandez, Carroll...Subs: Adrian, Byram, Masuaku, Ogbonna, Rice, Lanzini, Sakho.

14:35

Swansea have kept as many away Premier League clean sheets so far this season (3) as they managed in the previous two seasons combined.

14:30 

Jordan and Andre Ayew come up against each other this afternoon..

14:25 

Carlo Ancelotti was the latest name to be linked with the Hammers job this week following his sacking from Bayern Munich. Slaven Bilic is the bookies favourite to lose his job with the club in 18th place in the table on four points so needs a win today.

14:20 

Paul Clement makes three changes with Britton, Abraham and Sanches recalled to the starting XI.
