West Ham United boss David Moyes believes every match since he arrived has been a big match and every match left in the campaign is vital to staying in the Premier League.

The Hammers travel to the Liberty Stadium tomorrow afternoon (3pm) providing the weather conditions hold off and the east London-based club can make the trip up the M4.

Moyes’ men can pull themselves away from the relegation zone by grabbing three points off one of their rivals and the manager admits it’s a massively important match.

“I think really ever since I come from in from day one every game seems to be a really big game and to be fair we’ve handled them well, we’ve played well, we’ve even picked up some good results.

“You’ve also got to be very mindful of how well Swansea have done as well in the last six or eight weeks, so you have to say it’s a tough game for us as well going there.

“We’ve had some good results away from home and I hope we can continue that.”

The 54-year-old Scotsman praised the impact Carlos Carvalhal has had on the Swans since his arrival and believes it makes them a tougher chellenge.

“I think that’s football, that’s why I don’t think even at the moment everyone is talking about West Brom being insolated, but I think there is enough games still to stay up for every club.

“We’ve still all got enough games to stay up, all the teams still have a great chance.

“Every game is going to be important and obviously I think your home games will be important to most clubs.

“We’ve got quite a few home games yet which we have to try use to our advantage, but there has also been a lot of draws at the bottom end of the table as well, but we know if we can keep picking up points hopefully we’ll find ourselves a premiership club next season.”

Swansea City sealed a 2-0 victory against Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday in the fifth round of FA Cup on Tuesday evening but Moyes admits they can’t read too much into that result.

“Not so much from Swansea beating Sheffield Wednesday as they left several players out of the team who would normally start in the line-up, but I think what you’ve seen from Swansea is that they have improved, there is no doubt about that, they’ve gained confidence, alittle bit like ourselves when we came in and we got some good results.

“I mean they’ve had some incredible results, I think it was against Arsenal and Liverpool, where they picked up really good points and that would be unexpected really in a way.

“They’ve got a good record at home so we know we’re in for a real difficult game.

“It’s a really important game for both clubs, we know that getting another three points gets us close to safety, but we also know that they’re other games to come as well.

“We’ve all got games to play, so every game is going to be built up as really important, and the most important is the next one.

“It’s really important for us to go there and get something out of the game.”
