West Ham United 1-0 Swansea City
Last Updated: 09/04/17 12:02am
Cheikhou Kouyate eased West Ham's relegation fears and lifted the pressure on manager Slaven Bilic as the Hammers beat Swansea 1-0.
The midfielder picked a timely moment to score his first Premier League goal of the season to sink Swansea.
Bilic has been feeling the heat after five straight defeats left West Ham in serious danger of being sucked into the battle at the bottom.
A sixth loss would have left them just two points ahead of Swansea, and possibly signalled the end for Bilic, but instead they can breathe easier after moving eight points clear of the drop zone.
For Swansea, a fifth consecutive away defeat leaves them in 18th, although they will at least be heartened by Hull losing at Manchester City to keep them in what increasingly appears to be two-horse race to avoid the last relegation
