Carlos Carvalhal's tenure as Swansea manager looks to be over

Carlos Carvalhal's tenure as Swansea manager looks to be over

With goal difference handing Southampton a comfortable cushion heading into their final league match at home to champions Manchester City, it would take a remarkable turnaround for them to fall out of the top flight.

Manager Carlos Carvalhal is set to leave Swansea at the end of the season, with the club facing nearly certain relegation from the Premier League, reports said Thursday.

A Swansea City ball boy appeared to shove celebrating Southampton players in last night's crucial relegation encounter.

"We played to win, we showed everyone we played to win. It's not done mathematically but we've put ourselves in a good position", Hughes said.

In 24 matches in charge of Swansea, Carvalhal has overseen eight victories - including three in the FA Cup - eight losses and eight draws but his team have not scored in six of their last eight games in all competitions.

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

His West Brom team beat fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in their first match this month on Saturday to lift themselves off the bottom of the table for the first time since January. Yet that season was over 42 games not 38 so, by any yardstick, City have been truly exceptional.

This, as a result, consolidated David Wagner's side's stay in the league for another season with a point accumulation of 37and a game to spare.

"We can't depend on ourselves and we don't like that".

On Sunday night, Mark Hughes and his staff were told that their 40-room reservation at the Swansea Marriott was no longer available due to a virus.

The Baggies - now on 31 points from their 37 games - had hoped to reach the final day and repeat their memorable escape of the 2004-05 season.

Huddersfield sealed a huge point against Manchester City at the weekend and you'd expect that to be just about enough for them.

Swansea's best chance of survival now seems to rest on overcoming Stoke and hoping Huddersfield lose their final two games, at Chelsea on Wednesday and at home to Arsenal on Sunday.
