Swansea City could sack Carlos Carvalhal ahead of Sunday's relegation decider

We've still got work to do - Hughes cautious after vital win EPL: Southampton defeat Swansea, West Brom relegated

Manolo Gabbiadini's 72nd minute victor nearly certainly secured Southampton's Premier League survival but left Swansea three points adrift of safety in 18th position with one league game left.

Southampton have written one-star review for the Marriott Hotel in Swansea after the club's booking was cancelled 24 hours before a crucial Premier League match against the Swans.

The Baggies - now on 31 points from their 37 games - had hoped to reach the final day and repeat their memorable escape of the 2004-05 season.

'If there is one team in this league who has the capability of scoring a lot of goals it's Man City'.

Substitute Gabbiadini struck in the 72nd minute after pouncing on a loose ball in the box - a goal that also confirms West Brom's relegation to the Championship.

José Mourinho: some of my players too mentally weak for Manchester United
You buy a central defender, you don't like, and you buy another one. And some others, I don't believe they are going to make it. Not two, three or four - a lot of points.


In that campaign, West Brom were bottom of the division and eight points from safety at Christmas but recovered to survive on the final day of the season thanks to an unlikely sequence of results. In the eight-season time frame, West Brom finished in the top ten twice, including an eighth-place finish in 2012-13.

"One thing for certain, should Chris Coleman get the job, he would go into that changing room and shake things up because as someone from Swansea, he won't be happy with what's been happening at the club". Huddersfield Town will play at Chelsea tomorrow in their 37th match of the season. Swansea host relegated Stoke City, while Southampton are home to champions Manchester City.

Swansea have scored less goals than any other team in the league at just 27 meaning a big return like that isn't hugely likely - something which works in Southampton's favour.

Swansea is hosting Stoke on Sunday and a loss will mean they will be eliminated from the Premier League. Swans are at -27 while the Terriers are at -29. There were very few clear-cut chances, although Swansea midfielder Sam Clucas and Southampton striker Charlie Austin both had half-chances in a close first period. Moore's side needed a draw to occur in order to take the fight into the final day of the season on Sunday.
