Swansea City vs. Southampton: Relegation showdown

Swansea City vs. Southampton: Relegation showdown

Swansea City manager, Carlos Carvalhal, is confident his side can avoid relegation from the Premier League despite failing to win in seven league games.

They are two points off safety, so need a win in their final game and one of either Swansea or Southampton to pick up a maximum of one more point this season.

TOWN supporters can be forgiven for not knowing which way to turn tonight as their two rivals to stay in the Premier League meet in south Wales.

Points on the board are crucial, but the fixtures may appear to favour the Swans, who must beat relegated Stoke on Sunday.

While Southampton are not mathematically safe, the victory saw Mark Hughes' side take a giant stride towards securing Premier League status.

With both sides heading into the match level on 33 points, in 17th and 18th in the division, defeat for either would leave them in deep relegation trouble going into the final weekend, while anything other than a draw will relegate West Bromwich Albion.

"We just must not allow ourselves to be deflated by what's ahead of us and what's just occurred", he said.

The Kazakh fighter defeated Armenian-born Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center - the home of LA Galaxy - in California. With Saturday's victory, he joins American Bernard Hopkins for the division record of 20 successful title defences.

"We played very well against Chelsea, very well against Everton, we draw".

'This has caused Mark Hughes and the team a huge inconvenience and we can only think that someone somewhere wants to make life as hard as possible for us ahead of this game.

Former Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carvalhal, meanwhile, said: "We must be at the top of our game".

Mark Hughes is reportedly "furious" after a Swansea hotel cancelled their booking at a day's notice. "This is the main point".

As for Huddersfield, goalkeeper Jonas Lossl believes there is still work to do to secure survival. "Even Chelsea, if you saw the game you can see we dominated the game and we could achieve much more". "It has been a very good season so far, but we are not there yet". We don't stop after 95m.

Moore has had a barnstorming start as West Brom's caretaker boss following the sacking of Alan Pardew and hopes to be hired on a permanent basis this summer.
