Three West Ham players that need to be at their best v Swansea
Following some disappointing defensive displays this season, Irons fans would have been reasonably happy when they signed Fonte from Southampton during the January transfer window.
The Portugal international was a real leader and key man in the Saints backline for a number of years, but his time with the Hammers so far has been nothing short of a disaster.
The 33-year-old has made nine appearances in all competitions for the club so far, and the team has conceded 21 times during that period with Fonte often looking shaky and off the pace.
He will know that he needs to put his body on the line and put in a top performance – as he often did for Southampton – when Swansea visit the London Stadium.
