Despite Andy Carroll's stunning goal, West Ham United could only draw 1-1 at Swansea City this afternoon.

West Ham's recent winless run continues after a 1-1 draw away at Swansea City today.

Defeats to Chelsea and Arsenal as well as a draw against West Bromwich Albion have soured the mood around Upton Park of late, whilst they were also dealt a late blow with Romelu Lukaku's late equaliser for Everton in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

In a bid to get back to winning ways, Sam Allardyce took his Hammers side down to South Wales and utilised a 3-5-2 system, and it looked like working in the first half when Andy Carroll opened the scoring.

The gangly target man controlled Stewart Downing's cross before dancing away from a defender and sending an unstoppable shot past Lukasz Fabianski.

However, Swansea stole a point in the second period, with West Ham midfielder Mark Noble diverting a shot from Bafetimbi Gomis into his own net.

The result leaves West Ham in seventh place, whilst Swansea are in ninth after today's draw, which was their sixth of the season.
