Record West Ham signing Andre Ayew returned to haunt former club Swansea City by setting West Ham United on their way to a thumping 4-1 Boxing Day victory.

The Ghana midfielder, signed from the Swans for £20.6m in August, opened scoring on 13 minutes at the Liberty Stadium, before Winston Reid, Michail Antonio and Andy Carroll completed a superb Christmas with goals after half-time.

''I think it was important to get the goal for the squad and to get my first goal here,” said Ayew. ''I started the season in a very difficult way, but I’m trying to get back into my best shape.

''Things are getting better now and the boys are helping me, pushing me every day and I’m getting my confidence back. We had a great game today and hopefully we can continue like that.''

For Ayew, converting Andy Carroll’s 13th-minute knockdown was a big moment for the Ghana star, but the 27-year-old was thinking only of the team when he was asked about the significance of his strike.

''Personally, I think it was an important goal for me, but collectively it was our third win and we’ve done really well in the last few games,'' said Ayew.

''We didn’t play our best football in the previous two games, but I think we managed to get two clean sheets and win those games.

''Today we played better football, but I think we can do even better with the ball. We’ve proved that we’ve got a good squad and if we keep working hard then we can get more results.''
