West Ham are in the familiar position of trying to avert an early-season crisis and can start digging themselves out of their latest hole by beating Swansea in the capital.

The summer additions of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic have boosted the West Ham attack and the supply line into the forwards should soon improve with Manuel Lanzini fully recovered from injury.

West Ham should be close to full strength and are a good bet to slay the Swans, whose only league win this season has come against basement boys Crystal Palace.
