Carlos Carvalhal set to leave Swansea at end of season

  • Darren Moore took over West Brom with six Premier League games remaining

As the game progressed and produced a massive win for the Saints, it not only put Swansea in huge trouble but consigned West Bromwich Albion to their inevitable fate regardless of their outstanding resurgence under Darren Moore.

"We also got held up a little bit outside as well because we were first here on the coach and apparently we were meant to wait for Swansea, but we weren't going to do that".

Substitute, Manolo Gabiadini scored the only goal of the game on 72 minutes in a rather tiresome game that was devoid of quality and reeked of desperation from both sides.

Amid reports that the hotel was still taking bookings, manager Mark Hughes and his players were forced to stay instead 35 miles away at the Vale of Glamorgan resort, although their evening improved significantly as a 1-0 victory eased their relegation fears.

Having been bottom of the table and five points from safety when Carvalhal succeeded the sacked Paul Clement, five wins in nine games took Swansea to the heady heights of 13th place.

They're three points clear of Swansea and Southampton now and they will be certainly nervous going into their game at Stamford Bridge.

At the moment, the only way for Swansea to escape relegation will be for them to win by at least a six-goal margin against the relegated Stoke City.


Because Swansea will nearly definitely be playing their football in a lower league next season.

Defeat at home to fellow-strugglers Southampton this week coupled with Huddersfield's draw against Chelsea leaves Swansea needing an unlikely sequence of events to survive in the English top flight.

Swansea City are 17th on log sheet with 33 points minus 27 goals, while Southampton are 16th with 36 points minus 18 goals.

Alongside Huddersfield they are the lowest scorers in the Premier League, with just 27 goals from their 37 games. Swansea now has a better goal differential than Huddersfield.

Either the club, or a Southampton fan, has left a review on the Swansea Marriott Hotel, and the club have posted it to their Twitter page.

Whilst the reverse fixture was a respectable 2-1 to the Manchester side, they have been totally ruthless all season and with no other competitions to prepare for, they could easily name a full-strength side and go out and romp the Saints this Sunday.
