|West Ham's winless run continued as they were held to a 0-0 draw by managerless Swansea. |
The Hammers - without victory since October 24th - have had a long list of injuries to contend with and they have now failed to win their last seven fixtures.
Their early season form means they remain 8th in the Premier League, while the point for 18th-place Swansea ends their run of three defeats in a row.
The Welsh side are still looking for a new manager after Garry Monk's departure and Alan Curtis oversaw the point at home to the Hammers, but it could have been three.
That means they will be in the relegation zone over Christmas, but it may have been a different case had Bafetimbi Gomis fired home an early chance.
The Frenchman volley past the post after five minutes following the Swans' lively start.
Andre Ayew had the next chance as his header nestled onto the roof of the net before Lukas Fabianski saved well at the other end when Mauro Zarate shot straight at the former Arsenal shot-stopper.
It was close in the first half as Ayew shot wide before the interval and the home side had a penalty shout shortly before the hour mark.
Ki Sung-yeung's shot hit the hand of West Ham defender James Collins but it was not given, despite the home side's protests.
Kyle Naughton struck wide and Enner Valencia failed to hit the target at the other end as the game became more stretched.
Swansea dominated and will see it as a missed opportunity, as they continue to struggle for goals and Slaven Bilic's Hammers will be happy to take home a hard-earned point.
