David Gold reacts to West Ham United’s win v Swansea City in Premier League

Andy Carroll Warms Up

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold revels in the side’s victory over Swansea City in the Premier League.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold is delighted with the side’s victory over Swansea City at the Boleyn Ground.

The Hammers made it three wins in a row in the Premier League with a 3-1 success over the Welsh outfit on Sunday.

Wilfried Bony put the visitors ahead in the 19th minute, but West Ham staged a stirring comeback thereafter to pick up the three points.

Andy Carroll scored his first competitive goal since March to restore parity just before the half-time interval, and added a second midway through the second half.

Diafra Sakho secured the victory for Sam Allardyce’s side there minutes from time with an emphatic finish.

Gold was understandably overjoyed with West Ham’s win and hailed the performance of two players.

While Carroll will make the headlines for his two ‘comeback goals’, the significance of Alex Song against Swansea cannot be underplayed.

The Cameroon international, who joined the Hammers on a season-long loan deal from Barcelona in the summer transfer window, was once again a force in midfield and made it tough for the Swans.

West Ham are now third in the Premier League table with 27 points from 15 matches.
