Anichebe Goes Off Injured As Sunderland Fall To Swansea

Anichebe Goes Off Injured As Sunderland Fall To Swansea

The victory in the last round over Hull City 0: 2, although it interrupted the lose-lose series of 10 matches in a row, did not decide anything, and therefore Sunderland will leave the elite English division for at least a season. We'll be looking at the Crystal Palace-Hull game with a lot of interest but we can be happy with our work today.

"We have done our part for this weekend".

"We have to see what happens tomorrow and get back on the training ground and prepare for a very important game back at our stadium against West Brom next Sunday".

But they succumbed once again deep into first-half stoppage time when, after Jordan Ayew had tormented the home defence on the left, Leon Britton and Ki Sung-yueng switched possession to the right for full-back Naughton to smash a rising right-foot shot across the helpless Pickford.

"I never thought our chances were gone, but of course you are concerned when you are not playing well at a vital stage of the season", Clement said. We have beaten Stoke, we have beaten Everton, we have drawn at Manchester United and we have beaten Sunderland.

However, having had three managers in the space of a season in which they were bottom at halfway with only 12 points, it was understandable why the Swans so enjoyed taking a huge stride towards safety.

"It's a really big win for us at a crucial point of the season". That was the turning point. We don't think we have done the job yet, we've got another game left, but it was a great moment at the end.

Sunderland have won half of their four home games versus the same opposition and going back to last season it's just three losses in nine such matches.

During the Rockets playoff run, he helped design shirts for Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinal series against San Antonio. A security guard and a member of the police department were injured, along with several others after the crowd rushed the stage.

Ellis Short, the club's owner and Martin Bain, the club's chief executive, sat stony faced next to each other for the afternoon's proceedings.

He said: "It's the same as it was".

"The fans have shown their disappointment with me and I didn't want to make it worse". But this was the situation two weeks ago and it was always going to be hard what reaction to give the supporters after the game.

This may well be a result that the Swansea fans can look on and say that this is where they stayed in the Premier League for another year. They come in their numbers, we praise them when they go away from home, we thank them for everything they have done. And there's more risk attached, particularly if a club gets stuck in the Championship for several seasons.

"But we are all embarrassed and we are all disappointed".

Boos rang out, together with chants of "David Moyes out" at the final whistle.

He said: "It might sound unusual, but I have loved my time up here".
