Swansea's relegation fears continue with Watford defeat

Swansea City boss Paul Clement admits holding crunch talks with his players after defeat to West Ham.

The Swans are two points adrift of safety after they lost 1-0 at Watford on Saturday and remain 18th in the table.

It is a very different situation for Watford, who took advantage of an Alfie Mawson defensive howler to win 1-0 on Saturday through Etienne Capoue's volleyed finish after his first effort had been saved. The result means Swansea sit third bottom with only five games to go. The game against Stoke next weekend at the Liberty Stadium is possibly the biggest game for Swansea in the last few years. But he led the team out against Swansea and guided them to victory. "This is the time to fight and get the points we need", Fernandez told the club's website.

"They've still got a really hard run ahead, so you never know, but we have to think about ourselves". It is clear what happened with the goal. "That's not something you would expect from one of your central defenders in that area of the pitch".

Olsson has been in relegation battles with Norwich and Blackburn before and knows what it takes to survive.

'We try to use the strengths we've got against the opposition.

Besides Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, senior executive member of Hurriyat, Shahid-ul-Islam, has been placed under house arrest. The Jammu and Kashmir police has registered a murder case against BSF personnel.

"We're not a team that has electric pace in the front line. There was more spirit, more confidence in the players, but we just didn't have that quality that was needed". Hull haven't won today.

For Swansea, though, the gloom deepens as they remain entrenched in the bottom three - the bright start to Paul Clement's tenure a distant memory - two points shy of fourth from bottom Hull.

"Mathematically it is out of our hands, but what is in our hands is the next game at home against Stoke". The game against Stoke is a massive match and we have to win. Who knows if that will be enough - it's possible it won't be.

The Swansea manager, given the job in January, won four of his first eight league games and until early March had set Swansea on course for an unexpected revival.

Clement gambled early by taking off Dutchman Luciano Narsingh and sending on the club's record signing Borja Baston who again failed to show he was worth the £15million the Swans splashed out for him past year. "Now we have to show it again".
