Swansea boss Carlos Carvahlal has spoken of his respect for David Moyes and West Ham team ahead of the weekend game.
And the Welsh club’s manager has revealed there should be no threat to the game despite the Arctic conditions, given the club has under-soil heating.
Speaking at his press conference ahead of the game he said: ” I am not their (West Ham’s manager so I cannot speak about what they are doing but they are a good team, with good players.
I remember facing David Moyes in the Europa League against Everton. He is a good manager and it is a good team.
They have a style that can create problems to the opponents. We know the style and we know they have points we want to exploit. We focus on the game and fight for the points.
And he added the team could not complain about their preparations during the bad weather declaring: “We moved the training to the stadium where the grass is better.
And we have under soil heating but there are no excuses for our preparation.”
