Adrian: West Ham goalkeeper will miss Swansea City game

In-form West Ham are unbeaten in six Premier League games against Swansea City going into Saturday’s final ever clash at Upton Park.

Team news

West Ham goalkeeper Adrian could miss the final three games with a calf problem, with Darren Randolph set to step in against Swansea.

Slaven Bilic has no other injury concerns at least as his side bid to keep up the pressure on United and Manchester City in the race for the final Champions League spot.

Swansea captain Ashley Williams will be rested for the final two games of the season ahead of Euro 2016, while Neil Taylor (groin), Gylfi Sigurdsson (shoulder), Jefferson Montero and Alberto Paloschi (both hamstring) are all missing.

Leroy Fer is back after hamstring trouble, however, while Kyle Naughton, Federico Fernandez and Modou Barrow are also set to return to the starting line-up.
