Paul Clement: Swansea have every right to celebrate if they avoid relegation

The Daily Mail reports that as part of Clement's contract he will receive a £750,000 bonus if he can keep Swansea in the top flight in only his second job as a manager.

Swansea climbed out of the relegation zone last weekend when they capitalised on Hull's surprise home defeat to Sunderland by beating Everton.

Paul Clement says Swansea are confident they can avoid relegation but insisted there's no complacency in the camp. In two ways Sunderlands win helped us, the win last week stopped Hull getting points and they are still working hard.

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.

The Swans head to Wearside with a one-point advantage over relegation rivals Hull City, who find themselves in the bottom three as they prepare to travel to Crystal Palace. A draw on Sunday is enough for Palace to guarantee their survival.

Hull City have only 6 points left to play for in this year's battle in the Premier League.

However, Arsene Wenger's record at Stoke does not make for good reading. "We must win this game".

The England worldwide has scored five goals in four top-flight appearances against the Welsh side, including a hat-trick in January 2016, and he needs just one goal to surpass his goal tally from last season (15).

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was true to his word against Arsenal last weekend after saying he would rest key players at the Emirates and prioritise the club's Europa League campaign.

Leaders since November, Chelsea face a pleasingly straightforward equation at West Bromwich Albion on Friday: win and they will be Premier League champions.
