By the end it had turned into an ordeal for just about everyone associated with West Ham United as André Ayew, the player that they sold to Swansea City in January, inspired Carlos Carvalhal’s side to an emphatic victory that lifts the Welsh club up five places in the table and above David Moyes’s side in the process.
The £18m club-record signing was involved in three of Swansea’s four goals on a day when Carvalhal’s team gave their survival hopes a huge boost with a performance full of intensity and belief. Ki Sung-yueng, who was hugely impressive in centre midfield, opened the scoring, Mike van der Hoorn added the second and there was no way back for West Ham when Andy King marked his first Swansea start with a goal early in the second half. André Ayew, who played like a man possessed against his former club, then won the penalty that led to Jordan, his brother, adding a fourth and his 10th goal of the season.
