Swansea closes in on EPL survival with 2-0 win at Sunderland

The odds are stacked against Hull following last week's surprise 2-0 home defeat by Sunderland, which allowed Swansea to overtake them with a home victory over Everton.

Clement said of Naughton's angled drive: "A lot of those go in our auto park at the training ground".

'We've got two games to play and they are the equivalent of two Champions League finals.

Swansea should win at Sunderland, but the hosts are more hard to rule out after last week's win at Hull even when they were doomed to relegation. "We've got ourselves into a strong position but the season is not over and we don't think it is done", he said.

"But what he has done is come up with big goals in big moments and that's what you want from your striker".

Clement expects the home crowd to make a difference against West Bromwich Albion if the relegation battle comes down to the final day of the season. Now have to look to next week.

Swansea City travel to Wearside to face Sunderland, knowing a win could guarantee Premier League survival, providing results go their way.

Our main focus will be on the match at the Stadium of Light where Swansea desperately need a win to keep their survival hopes alive against already relegated Sunderland.

Venezuela fires health chief in deadly crisis
Wednesday's data referred to 2016, but Caporale took over as health minister only in January this year. A representative of the office listened briefly to their grievances on the street instead.

With just two games remaining, Swansea sit above Hull City with a slender one-point cushion.

"Fernando [Llorente] has been massive for us".

"Our support was brilliant".

Since the end of November, Huddersfield have lost only four out of 16 at home in all competitions, which suggests they will be tough to beat. With owner Ellis Short and chief executive Martin Bain sitting in the stands, he was subjected to repeated and sustained choruses of "We want Moyesy out" as he prepares for talks over the way forward. They deserved that today.

He said: "Obviously there's a lot of pressure on both of those teams now, not just Hull, but also Crystal Palace as well".

Sigurdsson now has 14 assists for the season, while Llorente has the same number of goals and has scored in each of the three victories Swansea have recorded during a timely unbeaten run of four matches.

"They were rock bottom when Paul Clement came in so you have to give him huge credit".

A banner to raise money for children with cancer - among them Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery, who was carried on to the pitch before kick-off by Jermain Defoe - was flown over the stadium by Newcastle supporters with the slogan, "United by cancer, divided by leagues".
