Swansea City lie two points from safety with just three Premier League fixtures of the season remaining and as well as winning their own fixtures, they will know that they may be relying on others to help them out too.
Paul Clement’s men kept to within two points of 17th-placed Hull City following their 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend, and they play host to Everton at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday evening.
However, prior to that the Tigers will come up against already-relegated Sunderland at the KCOM Stadium in what looks set to be a huge clash in the relegation battle.
With six wins from seven home matches since taking the helm, Marco Silva’s men will be the favourites but, of course, in football you never know.
Swansea supporters have been having their say on the afternoon clash in east Yorkshire via social media, and they are hoping that David Moyes’ men can do them a huge favour, but not everyone believes they will.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Hull will hammer Sunderland, all we can do is beat Everton and keep the gap to two points #swans
