It was the only goal of a proper relegation six-pointer between Swansea and Southampton, and it lifted the Saints three points clear of the 18th-place Swans with just one game remaining.

The three points courtesy of Gabbiadini's scruffy winning goal on 72 minutes means West Bromwich Albion join Stoke City as being officially relegated from the Premier League while Swansea are clinging to the top flight by their fingertips after this defeat.

A seven-match winless run in the Premier League has led to the Welsh side into the relegation zone.

A Southampton source told the Mail: "As far as we are concerned, there is no proof that there is a problem with the hotel". The draw extended the Saints undefeated streak.

However, a draw at the Liberty Stadium would see West Brom's fight for survival extended to the final day of the campaign when they would have to win at Crystal Palace as well as relying on defeats for Swansea, who host relegated Stoke, and Southampton, who host champions Manchester City. "We keep going to the end".

However, Saints could take encouragement from Huddersfield's draw with Pep Guardiola's men last weekend, while playing with freedom might make Stoke more unsafe to Swansea than the table appears.

By contrast, Carlos Carvalhal, who had earlier clashed with Wesley Hoedt, looked dejected as he applauded the Swansea fans. The two teams are level on points.

"We know that we have two more tough games, but we can only take one at a time. All the others, we dominated and were better than our opponents.I don't have any reason to doubt we can do it on Tuesday".

Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy made a few mammoth saves to secure a massive 1-0 victory.

Hughes, meanwhile, will focus on making sure the disappointment of not beating Everton does not impact on Tuesday's game.

'We've just brought some unity here and it's helped the players put the performances together on the pitch'.
