West Ham United continued their disappointing start to the New Year on Saturday when they failed to win against Swansea City away from home.
The Hammers headed into the Premier League game at the Liberty Stadium on the back of a 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park in the third round of the FA Cup.
Sam Allardyce’s side had endured a disappointing time over the festive period, and failure to improve on their results continued at the weekend.
The visitors took the lead at the Liberty Stadium two minutes before half time through Andy Carroll, but conceded the equaliser on 74 minutes when Mark Noble diverted Bafetimbi Gomis’s header into his own net.
West Ham did have chances and so did Swansea, but the two sides had to settle for a point apiece. The result has left the Hammers seventh in the Premier League table with 33 points from 21 matches.
Winning against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium is never easy and a draw is a good result, but many West Ham fans wanted more, although others were happy with a point.
West Ham supporters took to social networking site after the match to have their say on the result. Below are the best reactions.
