Andre Ayew insists points and pride are on the wishlist for the Swans this Christmas.
The final game before Christmas Day sees the Swans welcome West Ham at the Liberty on Sunday, with the hosts looking to build on last weekend’s promising performance at Manchester City.
Despite the brave display, Ayew and co left the Etihad Stadium without a point to show for their efforts following a late Yaya Toure effort which deflected in off team-mate Kelechi Iheanacho in added-on time.
And with the Swans desperate to move away from the relegation zone, Ayew revealed the squad is determined to give the Jack Army some festive cheer with three points on Sunday.
“In this situation we need points, and we will do everything we can to get points at home,” said the Ghanaian.
“The supporters will be behind us again. Lately it has been difficult for them because of our results, but hopefully we will make them proud on Sunday.
“Hopefully our fans will be enjoying their Christmas with three more points to our tally.”
