Swansea City and Southampton will face each other in the season-defining fixture at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday. Both sides have struggled throughout the season, and with just one week left in the season, neither of them is safe from relegation.
Following an impressive run of games under Carlos Carvalhal, the Swans are without a win in their last seven games. On Saturday, they lost 1-0 at Bournemouth and slipped back into the relegation zone. As things stand, they occupy the 18th spot with 33 points.
The Welsh side have been hard to beat at home, and they face Southampton and Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium in their final two games of the season. Based on these fixtures, the Swans seem to have an edge on their opponents in the relegation battle.
The Saints were seconds away from securing their second consecutive win on the weekend, but a late equalizer from Everton dealt a huge blow to their survival hopes.
The 1-1 draw helped them move above the Swans based on a better goal difference. However, they face Manchester City in their final game, so they will be more desperate for a win on Tuesday.
Earlier this season, both sides played a goalless draw in the reverse fixture at St Mary’s Stadium.
