Saturday Premier League betting update

Doyle BarkerMay 08, 2017

Swansea are now one point above Hull and firmly in charge of their own destiny with two games of the season remaining, and Clement has called on his players to see the job out.

The Swans begun the game positively despite Everton coming into this one as favourites and by dictating play, they controlled the tempo and indeed their opponents.

Ronald Koeman has admitted that Everton can have few complaints after seeing their winless away run continue, but says that he is happy with his side's current league standing. "It couldn't have gone any better". It's hard when you have injuries to come back and be the same. His creativity and vision was sorely missed by City in those games, and Palace didn't know how to deal with him here. Next-to-last Middlesbrough is set to drop, too, on Monday.

The soon-to-be-deposed champions have won seven of their 10 league games following the departure of Ranieri, who was sacked with Leicester close to the relegation zone.

Paul Clement believes keeping Swansea City in the Premier League this season would be his greatest achievement in football, eclipsing anything he achieved during his time as assistant manager at Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, where he enjoyed huge success alongside Carlo Ancelotti. Now, they have moved into ninth place and have the form to secure a top-half finish.

Midfielders Wilfred Ndidi, Riyad Mahrez, and Marc Albrighton scored the goals for the soon-to-be-deposed champions, who were close to the relegation zone when Ranieri departed and Craig Shakespeare came in as his replacement.

But despite the noise levels exceeding anything else heard at the stadium this season, there was little to write home about in the opening stages as both sides enjoyed spells of possession without fashioning any clear cut chances.

Swansea was the big victor on Saturday as the fight to stay in the world's richest domestic league took more twists across three back-to-back games.

Vardy then fed Albrighton to add a third goal in the third minute of injury time.

Stoke ended a 10-hour away-goal drought in the 33rd minute when Bournemouth striker Lys Mousset headed the ball into his own goal but another own goal, from Ryan Shawcross late on, denied Stoke victory.

Burnley were made to wait to confirm their survival after being held to a 2-2 draw by West Bromwich Albion at Turf Moor.

And this relegation battle could go right to the wire. But Wales worldwide Vokes headed in in the 86 minute to put the Clarets six points clear of the relegation zone.
