London — Swansea City all but extinguished West Ham's Champions League aspirations for next season with a deserved 4-1 away win in the English Premier League on Saturday.
In the penultimate match at the Boleyn ahead of West Ham's summer move to the Olympic Stadium, the home team was repeatedly punished for defensive lapses, and Swansea were two goals up within half an hour thanks to winger Wayne Routledge and striker Andrew Ayew.
Midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng netted Swansea's third in the 50th, and although substitute Diafra Sakho pulled one back for West Ham, it wasn't enough to prevent the home team's third home loss this season.
Substitute Bafetimbi Gomis completed the rout for Swansea in second-half injury time.
West Ham stayed sixth in the league, four points and one place behind Manchester United.
