Southampton v Manchester City -- Fans' view

Share

Southampton saw this as foul play by the hotel in a bid to derail their squad, but it backfired, as a late Manolo Gabbiadini victor clinched three points for the visitors.

It all means that if Swansea City are to stay in the Premier League for next season, they need to beat Stoke on the last day and hope that Southampton fail to move off that 36 points mark. Only victory against Stoke, coupled with Southampton losing to Manchester City and a 10-goal turnaround would save them.

Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal says Jordan Ayew's three-match ban in March has contributed to their current predicament in the Premier League. "We discovered some gaps in the squad and we covered them in January", Carvalhal said. We all know there isn't very much separating the teams in mid-table and those teams in the relegation zone, and this season should be a wake-up call to everyone.

"Manchester City are such a joy to watch as a neutral but they are horrifying as the opposition".

"It's been fantastic to see how he's stepped in on the first day to try and change things around, trying to be positive and trying to make us better".

"So it would make sense to make a quick appointment, but I can't shape that or dictate that, that's a decision for the club".

"For us it's not the final step and we have more work to do but I was conscious today that I wanted to see the same focus I have seen since I walked in the door", he added.

The Swans have a goal difference of -27, a considerable way off Southampton's -18.

"The club has tried to do things on the cheap, bring players in on the cheap".

"This is the last game of the most incredible season and it's been a campaign that surpassed everyone's expectations".

Swansea midfielder Leon Britton has announced that he is to retire at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old is a legend at the Welsh club - he was part of the team that won promotion from League Two all the way to the Premier League. "The anger's there. Any successful sportsman has got an edge to them and I don't think we had enough edge to succeed".
