The main talking point will probably be Chico getting Carroll sent off. I think there was enough intent there that it won't get rescinded but it's hard to defend Chico's actions and he's gone from being a 'character' last season to somebody who's done this kind of thing far too often this season.

|Aerial Duels for Carroll (left) and West Ham overall. I struggle to think of a match where the % is so one-sided|
|Adrian stats include a Key Pass via a Goal Kick, literally cutting out the middle men.|
The overall shot count may look OK but that hides both the fact that Swansea failed to hit the target and that most of the activity came after West Ham were already 2 up and down to 10-men.
|Shots by Minute - Half of Swansea's shots came in the last half hour when a man up with West Ham not having (or needing) any shots after the 54th minute|
|Shot location by team - West Ham didn't create too many great chances either but were clinical with the one's they did get|
|Crosses by side - West ham with more successful crosses from around half the attempts. 1 of Swansea's 6 successful attempts was a corner that almost got as far as the touchline the other side which is stretching the definition of successful|
