Man City seek a century as Swansea hope for a miracle

Four teams can go down still.

Assuming City do run away as hefty victors, the Swans good steal 17th with a solid win over Stoke. If we beat Southampton on Tuesday evening, only a draw would be required at home to Stoke.

The loss of their two key players, who were not adequately replaced, put them on an immediate backburner coming into this campaign when they had flirted with the drop last season.

They're three points clear of Swansea and Southampton now and they will be certainly nervous going into their game at Stamford Bridge.

They pursued their purist approach all the way to Wembley and a thumping final victory over Bradford City, and they were most people's second-favourite Premier League side.

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

Swansea would then only have to better Mark Hughes' result on the final day.

Swansea have scored less goals than any other team in the league at just 27 meaning a big return like that isn't hugely likely - something which works in Southampton's favour.

A win against the south Wales side would see Hughes' men three points clear of their opponents in 18th with one remaining fixture to play and a vastly superior goal difference.
