Premier League 2017/18: 5 biggest surprises of the season

Southampton could move above them on goal difference with a point at Everton in the day's late kick-off, but the Swans host the Saints on Tuesday, giving them the opportunity to bounce back right away against their relegation rivals.

The recent outing against Chelsea was a chance for Swansea to pick up at least a point, but Carvalhal's men could not do enough to cancel out Cesc Fabregas opener and with Southampton winning against Bournemouth, they would fancy their chances against the Cherries to heal some of their wounds.

Should Swansea beat Southampton then they would still need a point against Stoke on Sunday to stay up.

City's record-breaking run to the top coupled with the top four battle all but sorted means the remaining two match-weeks are all about who goes down.

"I am not anxious because we depend on ourselves", Carvalhal said.

Carvalhal's men produced a flat performance at Bournemouth on Saturday and find themselves one point above the bottom three after Ryan Fraser's first-half strike. Since we arrive, all the games we play at home, we perform really well.

In fact, no side has scored fewer Premier League goals this campaign than Swansea, who have netted a total of 27 times in 36 matches.

Hughes said that the draw Everton achieved with a goal in the fifth minute of added time, after Nathan Redmond gave his side a 56th-minute lead, felt like a defeat, reported Reuters.

As the 2017/18 Premier League draws to a close, the 26th edition of the English top-flight has had its fair share of thrills and spills.

'My players will give the maximum, the fans will give the maximum, and when we play in Liberty, usually, we are a strong team, and it is our (plan) to be a strong team on Tuesday'.

And even though the visitors continued to press for the equaliser as half-time approached, they struggled to manufacture any clear openings, and went into the break trailing by a goal; a deficit that could have been doubled had Callum Wilson taken advantage of Fabianski's goalkeeping error second before Friend's whistle.

For Bournemouth it was a first win in six games and ensured they will definitely have a fourth successive season in the top flight. "Anything less is not going to cut it".

With Swansea's final two fixtures being in South Wales, this might help them avoid a championship fate next weekend.
