Carvalhal seeks positive reaction from Swans against Saints

Carvalhal seeks positive reaction from Swans against Saints

Swansea were dealt a potentially fatal blow in their battle to avoid the drop as winger Ryan Fraser's deflected shot earned Bournemouth a 1-0 win at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday. In fact, they created a good chance on the 25-minute mark when Olsson headed over Andre Ayew's fine cross to the back post.

And Swansea's manager wants the two to be in the same league next season, and is hoping that the Bluebirds can do it. The defeat means they remain 6 points clear of relegation but the nature of the loss will be of greater concern to Howe than the overall picture.

For Bournemouth, a first win in six games ensured it will definitely have a fourth successive season in the top flight.

It was Swansea's seventh game without a win, and third in a row without a goal. The two players will be counted on to lead the line against Swansea. We didn't compete enough for the second ball. - The Swans have lost three consecutive Premier League games without scoring for only the second time, since a a three-game run in September 2012.

Southampton, in 18th, are another struggling side looking to build on their last result, having ended an eight-game winless streak with a 2-1 home victory over Bournemouth last weekend. Bournemouth will be able to drop into a five at the back formation if they are on the back foot.

What drives Trump's hatred of the deal, in all likelihood, is the fact that it was one of Obama's major successes. France, the United Kingdom and Germany have all said they would stay in the deal even if the U.S. withdraws.

"All I'm focused on is putting in another hard week's work, which is what we have done over the last five games. we've had some good results but those results have come from everyone being together and playing a part in it", Moore said.

Mike van der Hoorn fired the initial effort towards the Cherries' goal; which the 30-year-old did well to force away before Nathan Dyer tested the Bosnia and Herzegovina worldwide again moments later from close range, but the custodian was equal to it to eventually quash the danger. While they have the joint-worst attack (27 goals scored) in the Premier League along with Huddersfield, they have seen glimmers of improvement since Carvalhal assumed control.

These sides played out a scoreless draw in the reverse fixture at St Mary's Stadium back in August, while Southampton have won six of the 11 Premier League matches between these clubs.

However, if there is a victor in the Swansea and Southampton clash then one point will be enough for the Terriers from their remaining two matches.
