Relegation battle: West Brom relegated after Saints victory

Adjust Comment Print

Swansea face already-relegated Stoke City on the final day of the season, with victory essential.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes insists his side still have work to do to preserve their Premier League status despite a precious 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Swansea City on Tuesday.

Speaking to the BBC after the game Hughes said: "It was a big performance from us".

With Southampton's goal difference better than Swansea's by nine, it would take a remarkable swing against the south-coast club for them to drop out of the top flight.

Iran does not want "new tensions" in the Middle East, President Hassan Rouhani said Thursday in a telephone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel .

Huddersfield also remain in the mix given the poor state of their goal difference, although one point from remaining games against Chelsea and Arsenal will ensure they finish above Swansea. "We did our maximum, the players did their maximum but we did not score for whatever reason".

"When we don't score it's hard and we lose confidence", Fernandez said.

Had Moore been appointed 10 games earlier I doubt any of us, with the benefit of hindsight, would have put money on them being relegated this season.

Relegation has been on the cards for weeks, but Darren Moore's remarkable unbeaten five-game run as caretaker boss had delayed it on no fewer than four occasions.

California becomes 1st U.S. state to mandate solar for new homes
Sunrun, however, focuses on installing solar power systems on existing homes, not new ones, according to Bloomberg . Before the mandate, about 15,000 new homes are built in California each year with solar installations.

Villa went down that season, finishing last with only 17 points and while Ayew was their leading scorer that campaign, he topped the scoring charts with only seven goals. It's been a wild season on and off the pitch and has been a huge learning curve.

The Swans now occupy the final relegation spot and must beat Stoke on Sunday and hope Southampton lose to Manchester City with a 10-goal swing in their favor.

"Whatever has gone on this season there are no excuses - we haven't been good enough for the majority of it".

After three-straight seasons of relegation scraps, the Swans will nearly certainly slip out of the PL and that will cost Carvalhal his job. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll be aware that the Saints face the daunting task of going up against Manchester City this weekend - a team who have scored 25 more goals than any other team in the division.
