Premier League round-up: Swansea remain deep in relegation mix

BC-SOC-- Bournemouth-Swansea,233

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.

Swansea City can not let the defeat to Bournemouth derail their Premier League survival hopes and have to respond with a victory against Southampton on Tuesday, manager Carlos Carvalhal said.

Mike van der Hoorn fired the initial effort towards the Cherries' goal; which the 30-year-old did well to force away before Nathan Dyer tested the Bosnia and Herzegovina worldwide again moments later from close range, but the custodian was equal to it to eventually quash the danger.

bet365's latest relegation odds see Mark Hughes' men available at 5/6 (1.83) to go down while the hosts are 7/4 (2.75) with the same firm.

Ryan Fraser scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win as Bournemouth left Swansea City fighting for their Premiership survival on Saturday. With only a one-point advantage over the rejuvenated Saints, Swansea are still flirting dangerously close to danger. With the side now 12th in the league, Bournemouth would want to finish inside the top ten again. And they'd have to muster more to pull clear of the drop.

Swansea battled in vain to overturn an early lead by the blues but failed to trouble the scoreboard for the 16th time in the league.


Still Swansea created chances and nearly immediately Jordan Ayew fluffed a golden one to level when he shot horribly wide after muscling his way through in on goal.

Obviously, even if Cardiff do go up, the Swans may not be in the same league.

The Swans now have two huge games against Southampton and Stoke and now, there's simply no margin for error, but that's something Carvalhal's men have brought on themselves, you feel.

Watford's struggles had seen them drawn back into the relegation equation but Saturday's success will see them playing Premier League football next season.

In the reverse fixture, Bournemouth and Swansea played to a scoreless draw. That those two games are against sides below them in the table adds to the complexity of the situation. This is the main point and the players know about that.

"It's an incredible achievement", Howe told Sky Sports. They sit one spot above the relegation zone and now only have a one point cushion on Southampton below them.
