  • Winners and losers as huge Saints win v Swansea relegates WBA

Mark Hughes might have a longer and more illustrious managerial career but his attempts to save Southampton from the drop have not been going well after Everton scored an injury-time equaliser via Tom Davies to deny the Saints what would have been a crucial 1-0 win.

The Swans will be boosted by the news that a number of their players have returned to training during the week, given them a better chance of trying to achieve their aims. Huddersfield, Swansea and Southampton are all sandwiched in between them and looking for a win and a top-flight lifeline. Swansea has missed out on the chance to ease its relegation fears after losing at Bournemouth 1-0 in the English Premier League.

The Cherries now lie 12th in the table, six points above the relegation zone but with five of the seven teams that could potentially leapfrog them having a game in hand. The problem for Carlos Carvalhal, however, is that Swansea can ill-afford this sequence to continue.

One of the two, or even better yet both, will come from the loser of Tuesday's Swansea v Southampton "thriller".

For Bournemouth, a first win in six games ensured it will definitely have a fourth successive season in the top flight. Swansea huffed and puffed, but Eddie Howe's late substitutions took the tempo out of the game - a good move from the Cherries boss - and Swansea succumb to a third straight defeat. An improved second half was a welcome sight for the home fans but it didn't quite improve enough, leaving the visitors heading South the happier team.


"When I arrived, if I said in that moment that we would have two games to finish to stay in the Premier League, nobody would have believed me because of the really bad position we were in".

"It's a big game for us and Swansea". With 31 strikes in the league so far, the Egyptian's goals have helped the club in all competitions and been a real surprise in the world of football.

Out of the other nine, they have lost only four, drawing five.

Cape Town - Manchester City's anti-climatic run to the Premier League title has thrown the spotlight on the bottom of the log with as many as seven clubs in danger of the drop.

These sides played out a scoreless draw in the reverse fixture at St Mary's Stadium back in August, while Southampton have won six of the 11 Premier League matches between these clubs.
