After a win at home to european-qualification-chasing Everton on Saturday, Swansea now look to be in the driving seat towards Premier League survival.
The Swans were helped greatly by already relegated Sunderland, who they play next weekend, as they beat survival opponents Hull City 2-0 which hugely dented the Tigers’ recent hopes of staying up.
Fernando Llorente’s goal in the first half of Swansea’s game against Everton was enough for Paul Clement’s men to climb out of the dreaded Premier League relegation zone despite having only a one point advantage over the drop.
With just two games left this season in the Premier League, Swansea must pick up three points at bottom of the league Sunderland next weekend, even though the Black Cats did the Swans a huge favor by beating Hull. Their campaign will close at home to West Bromwich Albion on the final day where survival may not be guaranteed until the last whistle of the season.
Both games are extremely winnable for Swansea as they face a side who have already guaranteed football in the Championship next season and a team who’s season has slowed down drastically of late and with the support of the home crowd you wouldn’t bet against Swansea getting something from the game.
Hull City’s remaining fixtures are equally as satisfying for Swansea fans as they must overcome Sam Allardyce’s men at Selhurst Park before attempting to beat, up until recently, title contenders Tottenham Hotspur.
