Moore's great escape bid at West Brom nets Premier League award

Swansea City v Southampton

Manolo Gabbiadini scored the victor in the 72nd minute, as Southampton claimed a 1-0 victory at Swansea on Tuesday night, to inch closer to Premier League safety for next season.

The 26-year-old allegedly wants to be regarded as first-choice forward at a team playing in Serie A, and a number of teams are said to hold an interest.

Swansea go into the last game of the Premier League season needing a minor miracle to stay in the division, and the odds reflect that.

Manager Carlos Carvalhal is set to leave Swansea at the end of the season, with the club facing nearly certain relegation from the Premier League, reports said Thursday.

The champions' 105 league goals are more than any other side has recorded in the Premier League era, whilst no other team has recorded 31 wins and 97 points in a single campaign and the team still have one game to play.

West Brom's season started well with six points taken from a possible six after successive 1-0 wins at home to Bournemouth and away to Burnley. In the eight-season time frame, West Brom finished in the top ten twice, including an eighth-place finish in 2012-13.

The Saints secured a vital 1-0 victory at the Liberty Stadium which has all-but ensured they will remain in the top-flight, with the Jacks left in the third relegation spot.

Southampton are virtually guaranteed survival having moved onto 36 points with a nine-goal superior difference to 18-placed Swansea on 33 before they host Manchester City on Sunday.

Given Swansea are at home to Stoke and Southampton are hosting Manchester City this is not out of the question.

Huddersfield have a game in hand but face daunting fixtures against Chelsea and Arsenal.

After 37 games, the Swans have scored 27 goals and Southampton have scored 37, so they will not be making up that difference, therefore need the 10-goal swing in goal difference.
