Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal to leave this summer

  • Moore was named manager of the month today.   Manolo Gabbiadini's 72nd-minute goal won the game for Southampton

Carlos Carvahal's side enjoyed an initial resurgence after he was hired in late December, but they have since slipped into a near-certain relegation position.

They can go down only if they lose, Swansea City beat Stoke City and there is a ten-goal swing in the Welsh club's favour.

If City win they will set more records, however, for the most away wins in a Premier League season with 16, and the most points on the road, 50.

However the Swans haven't won since March 3 and have scored just twice in their last eight games with Carvalhal's charm and knack for delivering memorable quotes failing to cover up the cracks throughout his team. "We weren't going to be denied and messed about".

Indeed, a win at Southampton would make City's season, statistically at least, the finest in the English top flight. Yet that season was over 42 games not 38 so, by any yardstick, Manchester City have been truly exceptional.

"Collectively we let ourselves down".

It could also pose a threat to rival platforms and apps, but that of course depends on how well it takes off with Instagram users. She told TechCrunch that Instagram automatically read the story, which was playing on her smartphone and suggested her a sticker.


Were that to happen, Swansea would finish above Huddersfield on goal difference.

The good news for Carvalhal is that the Potters certainly look the most accommodating opposition after a week in which their owners Peter and John Coates admitted the club needed a major overhaul after losing some of its "core values".

The Portuguese initially turned things around and after winning his first game in charge at Watford, Carvalhal guided Swansea to victories over Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and West Ham.

A deserved draw for Huddersfield against Chelsea has put the Swans in an uncomfortable situation but the battle isn't over yet.

Hughes was speaking after substitute Manolo Gabbiadini's 72nd-minute goal handed the Saints a 1-0 win at the Liberty Stadium and all but secured his team's Premier League status.
