  • Swansea 0-1 Southampton Mark Hughes' men on verge of Premier League safety with priceless win in south Wales

Substitute Manolo Gabbiadini scored the second-half victor as Southampton took a massive towards Premier League survival with a 1-0 win at relegation-haunted Swansea.

Is a Swansea City victory better for the Terriers as it will mean Southampton trail Yorkshire's sole top-flight representative by three points with just a final day meeting with champions Manchester City to come?

Manolo Gabbiadini's scrappy 72nd-minute strike at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday was, without a doubt, the biggest goal of the Premier League season so far.

The Baggies, meanwhile, only have one game left, can only touch 34 points if they beat Crystal Palace this coming weekend.

Swansea have obviously done all they can to disrupt Southampton's plan.

NOW TV doesn't even require a typical television to use, as it is also available on a NOW TV Box, Chromecast, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Roku, LG Smart TV, PC or Mac, and selected mobile and tablet devices. Yes, please! Swansea take on fellow strugglers Southampton this evening! As ever, you can watch all the action via beIN SPORTS CONNECT. Carlos Carvalhal's have picked up only two points in their last six games.




The Saints were winning 1-0 at Everton last time out until Tom Davies struck an equaliser with the last kick of the game to rescue a point for the Toffees.

The game has been dubbed as the £120 million match as the side who are relegated will suffer greatly financially, whereas the side who survive will continue to share in the spoils of the massive television money in the Premier League.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes watches their English Premier League soccer match against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea, Wales, Tuesday May 8, 2018. The draw extended the Saints undefeated streak. I just look at things in a positive way. "You have got to deal with pressure, you have got to think clearly".

"But it is still very much in our hands and very quickly we will get this out of our system and go again".

TALKING POINT: Will Swansea survive the drop?
