Swansea boss says no room for complacency against relegated Sunderland

Manchester United great not financially viable to bring to Palace – Allardyce Forget Allardici, Sam's the Premier League Houdini

Sunderland's 2-0 win over Hull City last weekend handed the Welsh side the initiative and they took full advantage, with Fernando Llorente's strike clinching a massive win over Everton as the Swans moved out of the bottom three at the Tigers' expense.

This could be the weekend when nearly everything is settled in the English Premier League and there are two key games at the bottom involving the three teams still fighting to avoid the last remaining relegation spot. "We must win this game".

Sunderland face Swansea City on Saturday in their final home game of the 2016-17 Premier League season.

"With 3,000 Swans fans in the North East supporting Paul Clement and his squad, hopefully the free refreshments will help pay for a glass or two to be raised towards a successful weekend". Two wins - Swansea entertain West Brom on the final day - and Clement's side will be safe.

"Our mental state is that we are playing a strong team on a high from their last result".

Hull City visit Selhurst Park on Sunday before hosting Tottenham Hotspur in what is their last game of the season on 21 May.

If Palace can avoid defeat at home to Hull, they will guarantee safety for both themselves and Watford and Burnley, both of whom would be beyond Hull's reach.

"I believe we have great players and enough quality in this team".

Even if Sunderland win their remaining three Premier League games this season, it will be their third lowest points total in a Premier League season (15 in 2005/06 and 19 in 2002/03).

This is the fifth different managerial matchup in the last five Premier League meetings between these sides, with David Moyes and Paul Clement following Gus Poyet and Garry Monk (February 2015), Dick Advocaat and Monk (August 2015), Sam Allardyce and Alan Curtis (January 2016) and Moyes and Bob Bradley (December 2016).

Arguably Palace are still better suited to counter-attacking in away games, just as they were under previous boss Alan Pardew, but they could find the match against Hull plays to their style.

"The support we've had at home and away has been fantastic considering how tough it's been at times".
