Pundit predicts West Ham misery in Wales

Sky pundit Paul Merson believes Swansea can edge out the Hammers on their away trip to Wales this weekend.

Merson wrote on the Sky Sports website “Will Carlos Carvalhal continue his good start to life at Swansea? He needs to as it’s all getting rather tight at the bottom. Despite their good form they are back in the bottom three and it’s a bit like the Crystal Palace story. Palace had that unbelievable run but look where they are now.

For Swansea, they’ve lost one game in six but after the defeat to Brighton they are back in the relegation zone. This is now a massive football match and a must-win game for Swansea. I’m backing them to get it.

In regards to West Ham, they’ve gone a little bit under the radar but we will be talking about them if, as I expect, they lost to Swansea. West Ham can’t afford to lose this game. Again it’s a massive game because if West Ham win then they will go six points ahead of Swansea and they will be thinking that will be getting them close to what they need to survive.

PAUL PREDICTS: 1-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)

  1. Paul Merson ; who is that , exactly ? . . West Ham need these points more than Swansea .
    Hope the West Ham players have read his predictions of late . Take notice of how many big games he has gotten wrong ( Chelsea , for example , amongst others ) .
    All this prediction will do is wind us up to the maximum . David Moyes : it’s up to you to get this team wound up enough to upset pundits like Merson . No pretty stuff , we ain’t good enough for that … just keep bombing them with diagonals and long balls with shots from 25yards out . They will buckle and bend eventually . Merson is completely underestimating West Ham United .
    My prediction , without the benefit of stats and print outs ( he can’t even remember players names at times ,, clown ) Swansea 0 – 3 West Ham . Noble , Antonio & Chicharito .
    Penalty in there somewhere .

    • haha love your optimism Kev. I’ll put a fiver on that just for the hell of it. I agree with Merson. We lose to most to the relegation battling teams eg Brighton and Newcastle home and away with both teams scoring six. We don’t usually show up for a battle.

      • Cheers , E20 ; but you watch on Saturday . It was about tactics on those games we thought ( rightly or wrongly ) would bring us points . Swansea are expected to win by both Fans & Pundits . Our only available tactic is attack . NOthing else will serve . Swansea won’t be ready for that ., because they wrongly think they can contain us .
        West Ham united firing on all cylinders is something Swansea will not enjoy .
        Forever Optimistic old chap . 😎🙏🤷‍♂️

  2. If swans play anywhere near they did on Tuesday we should beat them comfortably !
    Arnie and lanzini to run em ragged ? Its our dm/f that could let us down ? And Atkinson lol?
    1-2 😉
