Hammers tipped to win at Swansea


MarkLawrenson1Mark Lawrenson is tipping the Hammers to win at Swansea on Boxing Day.

The often ultra-critical BBC pundit has come in for a lot of stick from Irons fans down the years but this season appears to have changed his tune.

Giving his weekly verdict on the upcoming games he said: “The Hammers have picked up seven points in the last three games and are starting to pick up a bit of form.

The same cannot be said of Swansea, who continue to ship goals – they have conceded an average of three a game in their past five matches.

The Hammers have only won one away league game this season but I think they will double that tally in Wales.”
