Swansea survival would be my biggest achievement: Paul Clement

Swansea survival would be my biggest achievement: Paul Clement

Guy Mowbray: "Hull this week, Swansea next".

But most will be able to breathe a sigh of relief at the close of play on Monday night if results go their way.

David Moyes, the manager whose future is by no means certain until further discussions take place with club owner Ellis Short in a couple of weeks' time, can rightly take heart from the performance at the KCOM Stadium.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman says they must not dwell on defeat at Swansea City.

This was Hull's first defeat at the KCOM Stadium since Marco Silva was appointed manager in January. "Even when we don't play well, it is impossible at this level if we lose our focus like we did".

Hull are in the midst of a battle to stay above the relegation zone, holding a narrow two-point buffer over Swansea. This is what is important - not what happens in two months. We need to work hard during the week to prepare for the next game. We want to see as many Swans fans as possible at Sunderland because the result could make a massive difference come the end of the season. "I've got a four-year contract so I don't know what you're talking about "a decision".

And the World Cup victor showed his aerial strength again when rising above Phil Jagielka to meet the excellent Jordan Ayew's far-post cross.

Their 5-0 win at home to Crystal Palace dislodged Liverpool and leaves them still in with a very slim chance to finish in second ahead of Tottenham. It's not nice. It's depressing and all the words you'd think to use.

And while she took the criticism (and Bergeron's comments) like a champ, it does still get to her during the judging. Yes, she's 20, but she hasn't had too many life experiences yet, so she can't display emotions she's never felt yet.

Relegated Sunderland threatened to drag Hull City with them through the trap door after a surprise 2-0 victory early Sunday (NZT) put a huge dent in their opponents' survival hopes.

Those helped lay the foundations for a Sunderland 2-0 victory and Billy Jones, the full-back who scored the opener, is confident his team-mate is destined for big things.

- Sebastian Larsson recorded his 26th assist in the Premier League but his first since a 3-0 win against Norwich in April 2016.

A third straight clean sheet for the Tigers would be their best defensive run of 2016-17.

Meanwhile, West Brom did well to secure a point at Burnley given how strong Sean Dyche's men are at home as both will take the positives from the result.

That Pickford will be a Premier League player next season seems to be in little doubt, though, since Sunderland nearly definitely need to sell.

What remains must be a squad capable of repeating Newcastle's immediate bounce-back to the Premier League if complete disaster is to be averted; whether Moyes will be given the chance to build that new team remains a live question.

Jermain Defoe has scored four times in five Premier League matches against the Tigers.
