Swansea and Penalties. They don't have much luck really! After managing to score a penalty in their home game against Sunderland last week, the first penalty in their league campaign under Michael Laudrup, it looked like they were denied the chance by the referee in yesterday's match against West Ham.

Agonisingly the chance came at the eleventh hour or more accurately in the 91st minute as Michael Laudrup explains:

West Ham played yesterday without a striker , a formation that was very successful against Tottenham but resulted in a stalemate against Swansea

Ashley Williams was back in the side after being out for six games and managed to last the 90 minutes. Meanwhile Jonjo Shelvey picked up a hamstring injury but is likely to be back training by Wednesday so that just leaves the side without Ben Davies as they head towards the big Derby game against Cardiff.
