Paul Clement deserves backing after Swansea's escape from relegation

Craig Burley examines Paul Clement's run with Swansea compared to Bob Bradley's and assesses the club's narrow survival.

Swansea's toughest Premier League season yet saw them flirt with relegation, make three managerial changes and survive with one game remaining. Coach Paul Clement's masterful escape strategy and captain Leon Britton's peerless leadership helped Swans over the line.

Rating out of 10: 3

Highlight

Swansea's five-game unbeaten streak to end the season, which saw them switch places with Hull, escape relegation and finish 15th overall. They hit a run of form at exactly the right time while their relegation...

Swansea end tumultuous season strongly with five-game unbeaten run

Fernando Llorente once again played the hero for Swansea in their come-from-behind win over West Brom.

After a slow start, Swansea sprung to life in the second half to give their home fans a proper send-off following a season of stress, beating West Bromwich Albion 2-1.

Positives

Another victory means Swansea finished a season of struggle on a five-game unbeaten streak. Key players Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente were again front and centre, with each involved in the goals, and Swansea will hope both men remain with the club for next season. Based on recent form, it is hard to imagine...

Saved Swans can play without pressure, with decisions in mind

Craig Burley examines Paul Clement's run with Swansea compared to Bob Bradley's and assesses the club's narrow survival.

And so the season draws to a close, with Swansea fans finally able to relax and perhaps just enjoy a football match without worrying about relegation for once.

Swansea secured their top flight survival with last Saturday's 2-0 away win over Sunderland and will host West Brom this Sunday. Albion sit comfortably in ninth place and haven't won in eight matches, and seem unlikely to resist a Swansea side high on relief and likely to be playing with more freedom than they have all season so far.

Swansea clinch survival thanks to Llorente, Sigurdsson and a Hull defeat

Swansea City took a step closer to Premier League safety with an important away win over Sunderland.
Craig Burley examines Paul Clement's run with Swansea compared to Bob Bradley's and assesses the club's narrow survival.

Swansea's 2-0 win over Sunderland put pressure on their relegation rivals, and although they couldn't have known it at the time, effectively saved the club from relegation given Hull's capitulation at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Positives

Getting the early goal was hugely important, striker Fernando Llorente converting a Gylfi Sigurdsson delivery for a league-best seventh player-to-player connection this season. Sunderland were poor, but with so much at stake, Swansea could still have been forgiven...

Swansea's Paul Clement lauds goal-shy Jordan Ayew

Swansea manager Paul Clement has lauded Jordan Ayew's contribution to the side's battle against relegation even if he's still awaiting his first goal since signing from Aston Villa earlier this year.

Ayew, a January acquisition for the struggling Swans, set up Fernando Llorente for the goal against Everton that secured a 1-0 triumph for the Welsh side and lifted Clement's team out of the bottom three, handing them the advantage in the race to avoid the drop.

Clement believes that Ayew has benefited...
