The Swans enjoyed a wonderful 4-1 win at home against West Ham, which took them up to 13 in the table.

Andre Ayew was involved in three of the goals against his former club, while brother Jordan produced an equally impressive performance and claimed his 10th goal of the campaign from the penalty spot.

Newcastle were the latest side to try and offer some defence against a mercurial talent, but they eventually went the same way as many before them.

And having apparently steered West Ham towards safety after taking over in November, Moyes is only too aware that the drop is very much a possibility again following their third loss in four league games.

"We lost in a bad way at Brighton and needed to bounce back".

"It was all about the response from the team, because before that defeat we did great". "We've spoken in the dressing room and we need to put this behind us as there is no point dwelling on it".

Ogbonna has established himself as a key member of Moyes's squad since the Scot arrived at the London Stadium in November, but the Italian worldwide was absent as the Hammers tamely succumbed to a 4-1 defeat at Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.

Moyes believes their next two games, home fixtures against Burnley and Southampton, could define their season and has demanded more energy and quality from his players when they return to action at the London Stadium.

"It was one of those games where if something could have gone wrong it went wrong", skipper Mark Noble told David Gold, the West Ham joint-owner, tried to make a sharp exit but was confronted near to his Rolls-Royce by angry fans, one of whom told him to "get out of our f-- club". We just need to keep focused.
