Gabbiadini had only been on the pitch for four minutes and it was only his fifth goal of a hard season for the Italian.The result means Southampton move up to 16th in the table, three points clear of 18th-place Swansea, who are favourites to joint West Brom and Stoke in the Championship.

Swansea find themselves on the brink of relegation from the Premier League after losing 1-0 at home to Southampton on Tuesday.

For only if the Welsh outfit can beat already-relegated Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium and champions City thrash Southampton at St Mary's to effect a 10-goal swing will the Saints tumble out of the top flight instead of the Swans.

Carvalhal had been in discussions about extending his existing deal at the club, which expires at the end of the season.

Former Wales striker Iwan Roberts said the decision on Carvalhal's future was "crucial" to Swansea's future as they plan for life in the Championship after seven successive campaigns in the Premier League.

His departure was announced as manager Carlos Carvalhal also prepares to part company with the club.

The Portuguese's reign began just after Christmas when he replaced Paul Clement.

Huddersfield needed a point to move out of reach of Swansea City - and achieved that despite Marcos Alonso canceling out Laurent Depoitre's opener.

Carvalhal, however, has confirmed that the matter of whether he will be in charge next term will be decided after the game against the Potters.

"When you lose your position at a club then it clearly hasn't gone as you wanted it to go or the club you left wanted it to go".

Not completely out of the question, but things look pretty bleak for the Jacks. Southampton's players must avoid all complacency as this remains just as important a match as any of those who have proceeded it.

So with the remaining fixtures in mind, who should you be looking at bringing into your Fantasy Premier League team?

Were that to happen, Swansea would finish above Huddersfield on goal difference. "I'm not too sure".
