West Brom relegated after Southampton's victory at Swansea

West Brom relegated after Southampton's victory at Swansea

David Wagner's men have a goal difference of minus 29 - two worse than Swansea.

The result came just hours after Baggies manager Darren Moore was named the PL Manager of the Month of April.

Substitute Manolo Gabbiadini scored the second-half victor as Southampton took a massive towards Premier League survival with a 1-0 win at relegation-haunted Swansea.

The club left a scathing one-star Trip Advisor review after the key trip to Swansea for the relegation decider with Swansea City FC at the Liberty Stadium was thrown into chaos when the hotel booking was cancelled by the Marriott Hotel the day before the proposed stay. This situation draws parallels with a club in Germany two seasons ago when Hoffenheim were in a similarly desperate position to the one West Brom found themselves in, albeit earlier in the season.

When Southampton squeaked a vital 0-1 away win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday evening, they did so after having their pre-match preparations fiddled with in a number of semi-suspicious ways. If the Saints somehow lose 6-0 then Swansea would need to win by four goals against the already-relegated Potters, but it isn't that easy.

His West Brom team beat fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in their first match this month on Saturday to lift themselves off the bottom of the table for the first time since January.

Given Swansea are at home to Stoke and Southampton are hosting Manchester City this is not out of the question. The Saints' superior goal difference means it would require a 10-goal swing for them to go down. Last night Huddersfield got an unlikely point against Chelsea which saw them ensure their safety for next season, despite many tipping them as late candidates for the drop.
