Bilic relieved as West Ham steer clear of relegation battle

Cheikhou Kouyate's long-range strike on the stroke of halftime was enough to ensure Slaven Bilic's side ended a run of seven EPL games without victory - including five straight defeats.

The pressure the players were under, forget me, they are the ones who perform in front of almost 60,000, they gave everything and that's why I'm very pleased.

Elsewhere, Middlesbrough picked up a point against Burnley and they remain six points from safety with one game in-hand.

Swansea substitute Luciano Narsingh came closest to an equaliser for the visitors but his powerful strike went just over. We would have liked him to play the whole game, but he was not ready.

Jackson and Joel Berry , the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player, were also asked to speak, and both repeated the same sentiment. And without his epic 25 points and 14 rebounds Saturday against OR , the Tar Heels might have been watching Monday's game on TV.

Collins was part of the Hammers side which kept only their second Premier League clean sheet of 2017.

West Ham carved out the first and only goal of the afternoon when mark Noble's long ball to Robert Snodgrass allowed the former Hull winger to lay off Cheikou Kouyate.

Swansea, who are now without a win in five games, improved marginally after halftime but were only able to create a few half-chances as West Ham held on to register a much-needed victory. "You can't fret about what the result might be or what's happening at other stadiums or what might happen if we don't win", he said. We started well and after half and hour they slowed us down.

"We can't make excuses, it wasn't good enough". "We can celebrate the day and we have to be happy, but now we begin the big preparation for the Sunderland game".

Locals look to help teams capture championship glory at Frozen Four
While Irish head coach Jeff Jackson was proud of his team's journey to the Frozen Four, he admitted the Irish were simply beaten. I give these kids a lot of credit because I don't think anybody expected them to be here. "It's gonna be a barnburner".

Having emerged from clashes with relegation rivals Swansea and Hull in fixtures which had been ear-marked as life-savers with only a point to show for their efforts, Steve Agnew's men knew they were drinking in the last chance saloon. Swansea manager Paul Clement: "It was a poor performance and not what we were looking for". A game devoid of quality from two very jittery teams was tough to watch from a neutral perspective but the added tension must have made it unbearable for those involved.

"We have to deal with that anxiety or we will be playing in the Championship next season". We didn't deserve anything more than what we got.

"The only positive we can take is that not much has changed around us".
