That might explain something of the poor marking from which Van der Hoorn profited for the second goal that sent Swansea clear and never looking back, but not once did it feel like West Ham were capable of finding a response to adversity. Although things are incredibly tight amongst those trying to avoid the Premier League drop, two defeats since Carvalhal took over in late December points to how far they have traveled.

Federico Fernandez's effort was then blocked on the line by Declan Rice, but in the melee before, the Hammers received another blow as Winston Reid suffered a nasty knee injury.

For the third, he helped the ball on following Clucas' corner for King to finish from close range, and the fourth - Andre won the penalty that his brother put away.

Swansea City turned to "rock'n'roll" football to lead West Ham a merry dance and rocket up to 13th in the Premier League table.

"We have had some important victories since I arrived but this was the best performance", said Carvalhal.

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