Southampton's Premier League spot not safe yet, says Hughes

Southampton's Premier League spot not safe yet, says Hughes

Lagging three points behind and with a much worse goal difference, Swansea need something of a miracle to extend their stay in the Premier League.

The only way the Londoners can nick the fourth spot is by winning at Newcastle United and hope Liverpool, perhaps distracted by the upcoming Champions League final, lose their first league game at Anfield all season.

LONDON• Mark Hughes enjoyed a measure of personal redemption on Tuesday after guiding Southampton to near certain safety in the Premier League with a vital 1-0 win at Swansea, after he was sacked by relegated Stoke earlier in the campaign.

Andre and Jordan Ayew will be playing in the English Championship next season after their side Swansea City got relegated with one game to spare.

A deserved draw for Huddersfield against Chelsea has put the Swans in an uncomfortable situation but the battle isn't over yet.

"We're not sure who the manager will be next season, I know Chris Coleman's name has been linked with the club", Roberts told Post Cyntaf.

The game was a feisty affair, and Manolo Gabbiadini's scrappy victor was enough to earn an absolutely massive three points for the Saints.

Swansea City have allegedly decided not to renew the contract of manager Carlos Carvalhal. The Saints' superior goal difference means it would require a 10-goal swing for them to go down.

Nevertheless, the Welsh side will drop regardless should Huddersfield Town, the team that denied Carvalhal's Sheffield Wednesday a place in the top flight 12 months ago, avoid defeat in any of their final two fixtures.

Southampton have now taken seven points from their past three games and Hughes felt the pre-match row over Southampton's cancelled Swansea hotel booking had worked in their favour.

The match followed a bitter build-up which saw Southampton forced to stay 35 miles away at the Vale of Glamorgan resort after their block booking in Swansea city centre was cancelled because of a "virus" at the Marriott Hotel. "We are confident", said Mourinho.
