Alan Curtis on Swansea's imminent relegation

Prior to kick-off, both teams occupied the 17th and 18th positions on the EPL log with the same points tally, and with just one game left to play after this encounter, the match at Swansea's Liberty stadium was billed as a relegation six-pointer, victor takes all encounter.

Southampton host Manchester City on the final day of the season on Sunday, while Swansea are at home against Stoke.

The news comes on the day that the Swansea City Supporters Trust called for chairman Huw Jenkins to stand down from his position.

Swansea is hosting Stoke on Sunday and a loss will mean they will be eliminated from the Premier League.

With that in mind, the club made a decision to leave a damning review on TripAdvisor.

Interestingly, before Carvalhal was brought in in December, the Swans contemplated swooping for former manager Michael Laudrup, but the Dane could not leave Qatari club Al Rayyan at the time. "I stand here to collect the award but, as I've said before, it has been a joint effort by everyone at West Bromwich Albion Football Club". Let us know in the comments section.

The Welshman had been handed the task of rescuing the Saints from the threat of relegation when he was appointed in March and was a odd choice in many people's eyes, having left his former team in a similar predicament.

Just as Suarez initiated his goal, so did Ronaldo, a neat backheel freeing Toni Kroos, who found Karim Benzema at the back post. We will look tomorrow and see what damage has been done, he is a little bit anxious (about Kiev) but says it's something minor.

Nevertheless, the Welsh side will drop regardless should Huddersfield Town, the team that denied Carvalhal's Sheffield Wednesday a place in the top flight 12 months ago, avoid defeat in any of their final two fixtures.

But the results dried up and Swansea have been dragged back into the bottom three.

After 37 games, the Swans have scored 27 goals and Southampton have scored 37, so they will not be making up that difference, therefore need the 10-goal swing in goal difference.

"He hasn't looked like a man who can turn things around of late".

The second half produced a bit more action, though.

This match had massive importance for teams who were not playing as well.

"They've got no creativity, no real goal threat, the recruitment has been poor", said Roberts.
