Swansea put up survival fight as Clement's men claim crucial victory

Paul Clement gave his reaction to Swansea's crucial win over Stoke.

Swansea's survival bid finally sprung to life with a convincing and essential 2-0 home victory over Stoke on Saturday. The side should now have the momentum they need to take the relegation battle right to the end of the season.


Swansea have been dismal of late but that all changed on Saturday. This was the side's most committed performance under Paul Clement, and they finally look capable of putting up a fight for survival.

Football is a simple game, and Swansea didn't do anything fancy...

Physical match vs. Stoke could provide the jolt struggling Swansea need

Paul Clement explains how Carlo Ancelotti's influence will help him to fight relegation with Swansea.
With the Prem's relegation battle in full swing, the FC crew look at who can survive, and how Swansea are slowly sinking.

Sitting two points behind 17th-place Hull with five games left to play, Paul Clement has described Swansea's match against Stoke this Saturday as a "must-win" fixture. In truth, Swansea must win another couple of games beyond Saturday to have a reasonable chance of survival. Though the Swans' recent play has been characterised by a baffling lack of intensity given their plight, perhaps the visit of an old rival can be a catalyst for a timely resurgence.

Stoke are no Cardiff City but while Swansea's...

Few positives as Swansea continue to sink towards relegation

Paul Clement is starting to feel the pressure for Swansea's Prem survival, calling their remaining matches all must-win.

Swansea needed a win at Watford but could only come up with a carbon-copy of last week's 1-0 defeat to West Ham. The search for the fighting spirit the side needs to survive continues.


Swansea's defence has been better lately. The goal conceded at West Ham was unstoppable, this week's the result of an unfortunate mistake by otherwise solid Alfie Mawson. If only the Swans could find their own shooting boots, they might have taken at least a point and maybe more in each of the last two games....

Llorente set to return but Swansea may need Borja Baston in survival fight

Paul Clement was left disappointed following Swansea's 1-0 defeat at West Ham last time out.

Crystal Palace's unlikely 3-0 Monday night victory over Arsenal would have made grim viewing for Swansea.

The relegation-threatened Welsh club will travel to Watford on Saturday knowing the battle to avoid the last relegation place is now realistically a two-horse race between themselves and resurgent Hull. Having scored just two goals over last last five games, Swansea must find a way to revitalise their attack to have any chance of survival.

A recent injury to star striker Fernando Llorente took...

Sleepwalking Swansea struggle up front again in West Ham defeat

Paul Clement has few positives to shed on Swansea's performance, calling it 'fear' and 'anxiety' driven.
Cheikhou Kouyate's first half goal for West Ham sunk Swansea City further in the Premier League relegation zone.

Swansea's survival bid took another blow on Saturday as the Welsh club sauntered, strolled and sleepwalked through a damaging 1-0 defeat to West Ham.


Only conceding a single goal to a virtually unstoppable shot could be considered a positive had Swansea scored any goals of their own. Fernando Llorente played 45 minutes and should be fit to start the next game. Swansea have scored just two goals in their last five games -- four of them defeats -- so the Spaniard's return can only be a good...

Swansea left in relegation mire after Tottenham's shock late show

Paul Clement was left heartbroken after Swansea's late defeat to Tottenham.

Swansea came within a few minutes of a badly needed victory against Tottenham on Wednesday but a late breakdown cost dearly as Tottenham took a 3-1 win.


The odds on Wayne Routledge scoring must have been 1000-1. The odds on him doing so after a route-one long ball from the goalkeeper and a Swansea player actually beating a man with the ball at his feet in the box must have been longer still.

Unlike last Sunday's 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough, Swansea looked capable of providing different...
