Federico Fernandez returns for Swansea City at Bournemouth

Federico Fernandez returns for Swansea City at Bournemouth

The Swans now sit just one point outside of the relegation zone and with an inferior goal difference to Southampton, Carlos Carvalhal will be looking for his team to go out and ensure they get a win.

That defeat certainly hurts the club's chances to stay up, and defender Martin Olsson knows his squad must do better in the final week of the campaign if they are to secure another top-flight season. They are 19th in the table with 31 points and must win their final game at 11th-placed Crystal Palace to have any chance of avoiding the drop.

The Cherries remained the more threatening side, though, and Wilson again failed to punish Swansea when he met Fraser's low cross and inexplicably scuffed wide of the left-hand post.

Swansea may well have been level five minutes before the break but Jordan Ayew couldn't covert brother Andre's ball into his path. The two players will be counted on to lead the line against Swansea. The Cherries have the upper hand, whereas Swansea needs to get a win. An improved second half was a welcome sight for the home fans but it didn't quite improve enough, leaving the visitors heading South the happier team. With 31 strikes in the league so far, the Egyptian's goals have helped the club in all competitions and been a real surprise in the world of football. They actually looked the more likely to score late on, and they nearly did.

Leroy Fer (Achilles) Kyle Bartley (knee) and Wilfried Bony (ankle) all miss out for the Swans but Carvalhal will welcome back Federico Fernández for this game after a knock ruled him out of the Southampton match, while Renato Sanches, Tammy Abraham and Luciano Narsingh are all available too. The overly-defensive tendencies which blunted Sheffield Wednesday earlier this season have reappeared to leave Swansea without a goal in 5 of their last 7 games.

West Ham took a giant leap towards securing their Premier League survival and piled more pressure on Leicester boss Claude Puel with a 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium.

These sides played out a scoreless draw in the reverse fixture at St Mary's Stadium back in August, while Southampton have won six of the 11 Premier League matches between these clubs.

"These kind of games are massive games and it will add to the emotion of the competition".

However, if there is a victor in the Swansea and Southampton clash then one point will be enough for the Terriers from their remaining two matches.

"It's an incredible achievement", Howe told Sky Sports. Swansea are 17th, only one point ahead of Southampton.
