Stan Collymore predicts West Ham v Swansea, picks narrow winner

By Matt Farr

Stan Collymore expects West Ham to end their recent slump and record a narrow victory over Swansea on Saturday.

The former Premier League striker took to his personal Twitter account on Saturday afternoon to predict a 1-0 victory for the home side.

Both sides have struggled in the Premier League in recent weeks, and find themselves in a relegation dogfight over the final seven games of the season.

But Collymore expects West Ham to come out on top in Saturday’s clash at London’s Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers are without a win since the victory over Southampton on February 4, and have lost their last five back-to-back games.

They are now within just five points of the relegation zone, but despite their free-fall down the Premier League table, West Ham insist they have full faith in under-pressure manager Slaven Bilic.

Swansea, meanwhile, have shown signs of improvement under Paul Clement, who is their third manager of the season, but they still sit in a perilous position.

Their last-gasp capitulation against Tottenham on Wednesday, in which they conceded three goals in the final six minutes, saw them drop back into the relegation zone.

However, they could move closer to safety with a win over West Ham, with the vital clash between the two sides likely to have severe ramifications for at least one of them at the end of the season.
