Boss Clement bullish over survival hopes after Swansea stop rot

Stoke, meanwhile, have now lost five of their last six games, and Hughes acknowledged that his team were not up to par in south Wales.

"But it is unlikely we will both win every game".

Paul Clement believes Swansea have rediscovered the momentum to win their Premier League survival battle.

"Nothing changed between us and Hull but what's changed is we've got impetus now". If us and Hull win all our remaining five games - which is a big task - there is nothing we can do. "I know him well and would be more than happy to speak to him". "They are good players, they never lose organisation and we need to be calm tomorrow and be patient to do good things and put problems on the opponent".

"If the gap had gone to five points with four games left I think it would have been very hard for us. Hopefully it give us that impetus to go on and finish really strongly".

Clement added: "I've said to the players that is what we're preparing for - a World Cup final - and the next game will be the same".

Ayew then almost got a third for Swansea, breaking free on the counter but Butland was there again to keep Stoke in the game.

- There were just 60 seconds between Marko Arnautovic's missed penalty for Stoke and Tom Carroll's goal for Swansea.

In the second half, Stoke were looking for the goal and took hold of the ball much more than the first half.

Stoke were handed a reprieve in the 70th minute when Federico Fernandez clumsily brought down Xherdan Shaqiri in the box, prompting referee Michael Oliver to award a penalty. "It needs to go in from our point of view because the apprehension in the stadium would have risen and we would have benefited from that".

The 23-year-old forward made his sixth straight start in the game and was substituted by Hughes in the 58th minute, shortly after the visitors had equalised.

"We know that we've not done well enough, recently".

"But they scored from their first corner".

"So if you'd have said at Christmas that we'd be in this position then of course we'd have taken it".
