Swansea City vs Southampton Preview

Swansea City vs Southampton

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Liberty Stadium

Date: 8th May 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

While the top spot in the Premier League had long been decided, the bottom of the table has been a very exciting one this season with teams struggling to stay afloat and others making a late charge to remain in the division.

This game is the penultimate match for both of these teams and the winner could be the team that ultimately survives the drop.

Swansea were on the up and looked like they had pulled off the great escape when Carlos Carvalhal was named their manager, but things have turned for the worst yet again.

Their 1-0 loss to Bournemouth in their last league game was the seventh consecutive time they have played a league game without a win, and they collected just 3 points from those matches.

Southampton have found some form towards this tail end of the season and that is the reason why they are not relegated just yet.

They have still won only 3 of their last 23 league games, but their draw with Everton means they are unbeaten in their last three games ahead of this match.

Swansea have two wins, four losses and one draw from their last seven meetings with Southampton.
