Bournemouth 1 Swansea City 0: Swans' Premier League status in real danger

Despite only registering two assists this season his crossing has been useful for Bournemouth this season.

The Cherries failed to win at Southampton for the 14th consecutive match as the Saints nervously defeated their South-coast neighbours.

The Welsh-based club must now pick full spoils in their remaining two home games against relegation threatened Southampton and relegated Stoke City to stay up.

Carlos Carvalhal's men spurned several chances but their failings in front of goal meant they remained very much in the mire.

Joshua King will be Bournemouth's most potent attacking threat against Swansea.

After a fantastic start to the season, Watford have been sliding down the table in recent weeks and are low on confidence, with the Hornets without a win in their last six games.

The Swansea manager has turned things around at the Liberty Stadium since he joined in December and has been praised for the job he has done so far, however, he and his players will realise it is far from finished.

Chad Brown, the trainer of Good Magic, said after the race that he would not take his horse to the Preakness. The third race of the treble is June 9 at the Belmont Stakes in NY . "I rank him up there with my top ones".

And even though the visitors continued to press for the equaliser as half-time approached, they struggled to manufacture any clear openings, and went into the break trailing by a goal; a deficit that could have been doubled had Callum Wilson taken advantage of Fabianski's goalkeeping error second before Friend's whistle. A poor first half was encapsulated by the bad start as Chelsea took the lead in only the 4th minute of the game but the visitors only managed 2 more shots on target during the match.

As far as Bournemouth are concerned, Harry Arter is a big doubt as he is now nursing an Achilles injury and Junior Stanislas will miss the game because of a knee injury. If they don't get the three points - Swansea still can't afford to drop points.

Carlos Carvalhal's men are now sitting 17th in the table with just two games to play, although only goal difference separates them from their visitors.

Former defender Moore has inspired his team to a spirited fightback in his five games in charge, including victories over top-four sides Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

The Swans lined up with five across the back with Carvalhal continuing to play it safe away from home.

- Bournemouth registered their first win in six Premier League games (D2 L3), and their first clean sheet in 12. This is the main point and the players know about that.

In the reverse fixture, Bournemouth and Swansea played to a scoreless draw.
