  • Ryan Bertrand reveals how hotel farce inspired Southampton win over Swansea

Carlos Carvalhal's men are level on points with their opponents but have a -7 goal difference on the South Coast side, and it really is make or break.

Swansea go into the last game of the Premier League season needing a minor miracle to stay in the division, and the odds reflect that.

Manolo Gabbiadini's 72nd-minute victor - four minutes after the Italian striker had come on as a substitute - pushed Swansea towards the Premier League trapdoor and confirmed West Brom's relegation.

The result of Wednesday's encounter also put Chelsea's chances of securing a Champions League spot in limbo considering they needed to win all their last two games to stand a chance.

Southampton have now taken seven points from their past three games and Hughes felt the pre-match row over Southampton's cancelled Swansea hotel booking had worked in their favour.


With Swansea City's fate to be sealed this weekend, there looks set to be big changes at the club regardless of the outcome.

Britton has made four Premier League appearances this season and since the arrival of manager Carlos Carvalhal in December has featured just once, in an FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday.

An example scenario that would see Swansea avoid relegation is them beating Stoke 4-0 and Manchester City battering Southampton 6-0. But their form has collapsed since then.

West Brom are all but down and if either Swansea or Southampton win on Tuesday evening.

Even that would probably not be enough with a nine-goal swing required to topple Southampton - but with the Saints facing Manchester City, Carvalhal will retain a small amount of hope of pulling off the impossible before he departs.
