Swansea beats Everton 1-0, out of EPL relegation zone

And the roars from the home faithful had barely settled down when The Swans nearly struck again, as Sigurdsson's cross found its way to Alfie Mawson, but just when he seemed certain to score from close range, his shot was blocked brilliantly by Everton right back Mason Holgate.

The Clarets went ahead at Turf Moor in the 56th minute through Vokes' first-time finish into the bottom right corner after Ashley Barnes' cross. However, the Red Devils have two games in hand, so anything but a win, would be catastrophic for the visiting side this Saturday.

Paul Clement says Swansea do not intend to waste their Premier League lifeline after becoming masters of their own destiny.

"It's a fantastic win for us at this point of the season when the stakes are so high", said Clement. Next-to-last Middlesbrough is set to drop, too, on Monday.

Clement's side are still fighting relegation in the Premier League, but the Swans now have a chance of survival.

You just can't underestimate the size of this win on a day when the script said Swansea would lose and Hull would win.

Fernando Llorente's close-range header on the half-hour mark proved enough for the Swans, who now lead the Tigers by one point.

"We deserved to get punished like we did", Allardyce said.

Swansea: Fabianski 6, Naughton 6, Fernandez 7, Mawson 7, Olsson 7, Britton 6, Carroll 6, Ki 6, Ayew 6, Llorente 6, Sigurdsson 6. Last season it was Andre, who moved on to West Ham.

Victory moved City to 69 points, above Liverpool on goal difference.

The English premier league approaches the final stages of another captivating season this Saturday (May 6th), with only a handful of matches left to play, as league rivals Swansea AFC and Everton FC square off at the Liberty Stadium, with the kick-off commencing at (18:30 CET/17:30 GMT). After a scoreless first half, Chelsea broke through in the 66th minute when Pedro scored a lovely goal from outside of the box.

"To have to win on the last day and stay in the league, I would take that, but our target is to win our last three games".

Everton's failure to score in south Wales saw them draw a blank in a third successive league match for the first time in 11 years.

The Toffees fell to a 1-0 defeat to strugglers Swansea City on Saturday evening, leaving them without victory away from Merseyside since beating Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in January.

The post then denied Swansea a second goal, as the ball ping-ponged around the Everton area before falling to Ayew who struck the ball with his shin, hitting the post.
