Swansea - Swansea were held to a goalless draw by West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday, a result that keeps the Welsh club in the relegation zone.

The draw stops a run of three straight league defeats but Swansea remains without a win since victory over Aston Villa in October.

Hammers goalkeeper Adrian ensured his side left the Liberty Stadium with a point after two fine stops in either half.

He saved well at his near post following midfielder Ki Sung-yueng's effort in the 25th before a stunning save on the hour-mark following a volley from Jack Cork.

West Ham substitute Enner Valencia almost won it for the visitors in the 76th but his strike was tipped over the bar by Lukasz Fabianski.

Swansea sit in 18th place, two points adrift of Newcastle, while West Ham are eighth with 25 points.
