Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal calls for reaction from struggling squad

As far as the Cherries go, they'd want to win the game on Saturday to all but avoid relegation for the third consecutive season, if it isn't already avoided at 12th in the league with 36 points on board.

However, if there is a victor in the Swansea and Southampton clash then one point will be enough for the Terriers from their remaining two matches.

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

The Swans need to find a way to stop the rot on Tuesday if they hope to survive.

The Swans now sit just one point outside of the relegation zone and with an inferior goal difference to Southampton, Carlos Carvalhal will be looking for his team to go out and ensure they get a win.

Carlos Carvalhal's men spurned chances and their failings in front of goal meant they remained very much in the mire.

Carlos Carvalhal's men are now sitting 17th in the table with just two games to play, although only goal difference separates them from their visitors. "But tomorrow is another day and we will react and Tuesday, we must be at the top". An improved second half was a welcome sight for the home fans but it didn't quite improve enough, leaving the visitors heading South the happier team.

"We have played better at home since I arrived".

Bournemouth are on the brink of securing their Premier League status, but a recent downturn in form is prolonging that peace of mind.

With Everton having little to play for, and the dissatisfaction among Toffees supporters to manager Sam Allardyce showing no signs of going away anytime soon, we expect the Toffees to sign off at Goodison with draw. Nathan Redmond gave the Saints the lead on 56 minutes, but they were unable to hold it as Tom Davies' stoppage-time equaliser forced a share of the spoils.

Cape Town - Manchester City's anti-climatic run to the Premier League title has thrown the spotlight on the bottom of the log with as many as seven clubs in danger of the drop. Even if they are not scoring, we achieved goalscoring situations against Chelsea and Everton. "It gives us faith".

Southampton, in 18th, are another struggling side looking to build on their last result, having ended an eight-game winless streak with a 2-1 home victory over Bournemouth last weekend.

"On Tuesday, we must be at the top of our game".
