Southampton's cheeky review of trip to Swansea after 'dark arts' room cancellation

Perhaps it was mere coincidence, but suspicions were raised when Southampton travelled to Swansea on Tuesday for their crucial relegation face-off, only to find their prematch preparations had been derailed.

Saints manager Mark Hughes hinted there may have been "dark arts" at play as his side first had their hotel booking cancelled at short notice before being informed their police escort through the city rush hour had also been scotched.

However, Hughes' team defied the multiple setbacks to escape...

Southampton emerge from relegation scrap at Swansea, who look doomed

SWANSEA, Wales -- There was a time when Southampton and Swansea were seen as model football clubs, ones who made sensible decisions and could cope with losing managers and key players, because there was a plan.

Those days are in the past now. Southampton's 1-0 victory in South Wales on Tuesday all but confirms their survival; three points clear of the drop zone and with a goal-difference advantage of nine, it will take a miracle on the final day for Swansea to overhaul them.

The only real...

Transfer Talk: Spurs plan Alfie Mawson, Ryan Bertrand double-swoop

Mark Ogden and Dan Kilpatrick discuss Tottenham's continual lack of silverware as Manchester United knock them out of the FA Cup semifinal.
Despite reaching the heights of beating Real Madrid earlier in the season, Tottenham's season appears to be ending with a familiar ring to it.
The ESPN FC panel delve into Tottenham's inability to hold leads in important games following their FA Cup semifinal defeat against Man United.

Clubs are slowly turning their eyes toward the summer window. Transfer Talk has updates on all the latest rumours.

Spurs ready Mawson and Bertrand double swoop

Tottenham are lining up a £65 million double transfer for Swansea's Alfie Mawson and Southampton's Ryan Bertrand, per the Daily Express.

Spurs failed to challenge for the title this season, but Mauricio Pochettino appears to have guided them to another top-four finish to secure Champions League football. Still, with Saints and the Swans...

Dusan Tadic guides Saints toward safety; Arsene Wenger era in a microcosm

Steve Nicol can't comprehend why Liverpool were denied a penalty in their draw with Stoke and chastises Jurgen Klopp for not shaking the ref's hand.

The weekend review has praise for Dusan Tadic and Eden Hazard, while Arsenal's loss at Manchester United was a microcosm of the end of the Arsene Wenger era.

Goal of the weekend

Some goals aren't immediately spectacular, but after a couple of looks, you realise that there was really only one place the scorer could have put the ball to get the goal. That was the case for Dusan Tadic's second for Southampton against Birmingham, half toe-punted, half expertly swerved into the corner of the...

Southampton overcome Bournemouth -- and nerves -- for vital win

SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Mark Hughes, as he is not shy of saying, has never been relegated. He may have to wear at least some of Stoke's potential demotion, having been in charge there until January, but his next three games are about ensuring he doesn't have two in the same season on his record and conscience.

At full-time, after his Southampton side had repelled attack after Bournemouth attack to close out a 2-1 win, Hughes looked like he didn't know what to do with himself. He turned around and...

Giroud, Morata put Chelsea in FA Cup final at Southampton's expense

The ESPN FC team answer your tweets on Alvaro Morata vs. Romelu Lukaku, Manchester United's comeback, Napoli's season and more.

LONDON -- Three thoughts from the FA Cup semifinal as Chelsea edged Southampton 2-0 to set up a date with Manchester United.

1. Giroud the hero, but Morata also on target

It still feels strange to see Olivier Giroud in the blue of Chelsea rather than the red of Arsenal. Less than a year ago, he provided a game-changing moment in the FA Cup final here for his former employers against his current employers: a brilliant chipped cross for Aaron Ramsey's headed winner. Now, his superb goal here...
