Adios.

The scrap for survival

Here's how it's looking after Saturday's matches.

Sunderland have a couple of games in hand but look down and out. Middlesbrough's fate looks similar after their 4-0 defeat by Bournemouth.

That dreaded third and final relegation place could go to Swansea or Hull. And what about Palace and Burnley? They're being pulled right into the dog fight.

'11 lions'

West Ham 0-0 Everton

West Ham United

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic told BBC Sport: "I am really pleased with the performance, I could not ask anymore from my players. In terms of effort, dedication and determination they get top marks. If any team deserved three points it was us.

"To limit them to one chance requires a lot of hard work. The only bit of negativity is that I felt at moments we lacked some quality in our decision making. We played like 11 lions, one for each other. "We talk about the magic number of 40, I think we might need a few more points, so we are not going into the last game."

Silva - 'Boys were fantastic'

Hull City 2-0 Watford

Hull City

Hull manager Marco Silva speaking to Premier League Productions: "Yes I'm really happy. It was not easy. We played with ten players, but our boys were fantastic and they deserved it.

"Talking about Oumar Niasse's red card - "I don't want to talk about this situation and I respect the referee and officials, but this is not the first time that something like this has happened. Today we have achieved what we needed, but it was very hard.

"I'm really happy but we still have four games to fight. Maybe in January no one would believe in our club to survive. I don't know what the future is."

'We have a moral obligation to play better'

Hull City 2-0 Watford

Watford

Watford Captain Troy Deeney: "Not good enough. We just thought we could play some tiki-taka football against a team fighting for their lives. 

"I'm not in the business of apologising, but it's a long journey for our fans and that wasn't good enough, which is why I went over to apologise to the fans. We have a moral obligation to play better.

"We don't play till Monday and it will be a long hard week. It's just not about this season, it's about next season."

Look away, Boro fans

Joshua King has scored five goals more than Middlesbrough (6) in the Premier League in 2017. 

Ouch.

'We will continue to fight'

Hull City 2-0 Watford

Hull City

Hull City manager Marco Silva speaking to Match of the Day: "We kept our focus and possession and we believed we could score. It was a really important win. I'm really happy when our club fight the way we have and we will continue to fight to keep our club in the Premier League. 

"The red card was not easy for us. I respect the referee and it is not an easy job, but I watch a lot of games, and I don't see this happening in other games. It is not easy for a team like us to be missing a player."

Noel Fitzpatrick: Suddenly Burnley's position is looking precarious! 

Sownak Bose: Marco Silva continues to make his early doubters look like complete mugs. Surely he's one of the managers of the season so far? 

'The game changed on penalty miss'

Swansea 2-0 Stoke

Stoke City

Stoke manager Mark Hughes speaking to Match of the Day: "We made it difficult for ourselves. If you are away you have got to make sure you are in the game and don't concede early and that is what we did. 

"We hadn't got going. At 1-0 for the most part we were OK but clearly the game has changed on missing the penalty - if we could get back on terms who knows?

"We need to be better at managing the game and affecting the opposition."

'It's been a tough few months'

Bournemouth 4-0 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough boss Steve Agnew told BBC Match of the Day: "We lost the game in the first period. We defended really poorly for two goals and gave ourselves a difficult afternoon. 

"We’re all disappointed with the defending and the way we conceded early goals.

"We have to go and beat Sunderland on Wednesday and move on from there. It’s been a tough few months, certainly since our last win. 

"We have to regroup and be ready for the Sunderland game."  

On Gaston Ramirez's red card: "We’re 2-0 down away from home and it becomes very difficult. 

"We have to stay in the game but that made it tough. Once you have a yellow, you have to be careful." 

'Electric' Bournemouth

Bournemouth 4-0 Middlesbrough

Bournemouth

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said: "It was a great performance from us, an electric start. We were dominant in the early stages. 

"When you consider the importance of the game, the early goal gave us a huge lift and dented their confidence. Luckily we didn’t rest on that and got the second goal. 

"I’m pleased to see the two strikers contributing goals. It’s a good base to build your team around. It was trademark Marc Pugh today, intricate wide play. He has a lot of quality, highlighted by his goal.

"We need more points until it [safety] is mathematically secured."

On whether he was behind the free-kick routine which led to Charlie Daniels' goal: "I won’t take any credit for that. It was off the cuff."

'An outstanding performance'

Hull City 2-0 Watford

Leon Osman

Ex-Everton midfielder on Final Score

Look at Hull's home form and their character and attitude, scrapping all game and scraping a win. An outstanding performance.

'We will chase Hull down to the last moment'

Swansea 2-0 Stoke

Swansea City

More from Swansea manager Paul Clement: "Things are so tight and sometimes it goes for you. Having looked back at the penalty I can't see if it is a penalty or is not. We got a bit of luck. Even the goal, it was a fantastic strike from Tom and the deflection took it right into the top corner.

"[Fernando] Llorente did well. He is not in tip top condition physically but is a big focal point. If we get good service into him, he is a fantastic finisher. 

"I knew at half-time it was 0-0 at Hull and they were down to 10 men. It is a terrific result for them. I did feel it would be a game they would win. We have to concentrate on our jobs. We have massive game next week at Old Trafford.

"I thought we needed three wins and a draw. Hull are in the driving seat but we will chase them down until the last moment."

'We have got momentum now'

Swansea 2-0 Stoke

Swansea City

Swansea manager Paul Clement speaking to Match of the Day: "I am very proud of the team today. I am happy for our supporters as well. We have struggled in the last few games at a crucial stage of the season.

"I thought it was a must win game and Hull have won and it was absolutely right.

"If the gap had gone to five points with four to play the task would have been very difficult. 

"Nothing changed between us and Hull but what has changed is we have got momentum now. We played terrific. We rode our luck but overall deserved to win and can look forward."

"There were a lot of negatives"

West Ham 0-0 Everton

Everton

Everton manager Ronald Koeman told Match of the Day: "It was really far from what we are used to, from the first minute to the last second. 

"We didn't get the intensity. It was a poor performance with a lot of negatives. 

"One positive is we kept a clean sheet. We like to perform to a certain level and it was far from that.

"I wasn't happy at half-time so we tried to do something. I couldn't change four, five, six or seven. But I changed two to give a signal to the team.

"We need wins now to get a chance of sixth or fifth place."

The lines are open...

'Why didn't Swansea play like this five games ago?'

Swansea City 2-0 Stoke City

Terry Butcher

Ex-England captain at Liberty Stadium for 5 live Sport

Stoke were well beaten, very poor today. Swansea, really, should have scored more but have won 2-0. 

Why didn't Swansea start playing like this four or five games ago? They wouldn't now be in trouble. They have tough games to come but they have helped themselves with this win. 

Thing is though, look at the Hull result. They've matched Swansea... 

Downing apologises to Boro fans

Bournemouth 4-0 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough midfielder Stewart Downing: "Credit to Bournemouth. 

"We knew all week that they started quickly in games but we didn’t get going. We can only blame ourselves and nobody else.

"It is hard enough with 11 men, let alone 10. We were chasing from then on.

"Sorry to the fans, they’ve travelled a long way. They’ve been first class all season. 

"I don’t think it was unbelievable play from Bournemouth, it was sloppy play from us. It’s hard to take."

BreakingIbrahimovic and Rojo out for the season

This is pretty big news.

Man United pair Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo have both sustained cruciate injuries and will both miss the rest of the season.

Ibrahimovic landed awkwardly when challenging for the ball during the Europa League quarter-final second-leg win over Anderlecht.

Rojo was replaced on 23 minutes after colliding with a visiting player.

'Today was like a cup final'

Swansea 2-0 Stoke

Swansea City

Swansea goal scorer Tom Carroll speaking to Sky Sports: "It is a massive result. As a team we know we haven't been good enough but we were back at it today. The fans were brilliant from the start and put a performance together to get the win.

"It was nice to chip in, the goal was a great feeling. We needed a bit of luck. To see the penalty go over the bar, it was a bit of a buzz.

"It was like a cup final today and now we have another four."

Fernando Llorente, who scored Swansea's first goal: "Today was very important that we won. The team have played a very good match. We needed this. Now we have more confidence and have to continue in this way.

"We have to play like today. The last four months have been very difficult but our mind is strong. We have to continue in this way."

Relegation time...

Leyton Orient have dropped out of the Football League after losing 3-0 against Crewe. 

Swindon (and Tim Sherwood) will be back down in League Two next season. Their relegation is confirmed following a 2-1 defeat by Scunthorpe.

For more from the EFL, head over here. 

West Ham 0-0 Everton

Everton defender Ashley Williams is asked which team has benefited more from a draw.

"Neither of us," he replies.  "It wasn't a great game. We haven't played to a level that we have this season. But as a defender it's a clean sheet so I'm happy."

A point is enough to take the Toffees above Arsenal and up to sixth place in the league. 

FULL-TIME

Hull 2-0 Watford

A massive win for Hull.

They looked up against it after Oumar Niasse was dismissed in the first half, but two goals in a 10-minute spell in the second half wrapped up the points for Marco Silva's side.

FULL-TIME

Swansea 2-0 Stoke

A big three points for the Swans, but they remain in the bottom three after Hull's win over Watford.

FULL-TIME

Bournemouth 4-0 Middlesbrough

That's it.

Bournemouth on top from start to finish after Joshua King's early goal.

All too easy for the Cherries, though Middlesbrough may point fingers at Gaston Ramirez after he picked up two ridiculous bookings early on.

They have some serious work on to save their season.

FULL-TIME

West Ham 0-0 Everton

First-half: Dull

Second-half: Pretty dull

Swansea 2-0 Stoke

Swansea are on the brink of a very important three points. They're trying to run the clock down...

'Hull deserve their lead'

Hull City 2-0 Watford

Dean Saunders

Ex-Liverpool and Wales striker on Final Score

This afternoon has been a rollercoaster ride! Hull City, the spirit and determination that team has shown to get a result is superb. Hull deserve their lead, fair and square. 

When I sold Sam Clucas to Hull and got a million pounds for Chesterfield, I told him he was never allowed to score against Swansea. His goal today might have sent the Swans down!

Sam Clucas
PA

Bournemouth 4-0 Middlesbrough

Well, aside from sending Middlesbrough further towards the Championship door, this win for Bournemouth all but ends any survival doubts they may have had.

In truth, it could have been six or seven.

Substitute Lys Mousset is the latest to go close as he reacts first to a bouncing ball in the box, but the forward sends an effort well clear of the crossbar.

The Cherries will have to make do with four. 

West Ham 0-0 Everton

A West Ham corner comes swinging in and Jose Fonte tries to header down, but it's safe in the hands of Everton keeper Maarten Stekelenburg. 

One-way traffic at the moment.

Swansea deserve it

Swansea City 2-0 Stoke City

Terry Butcher

Ex-England captain at Liberty Stadium for 5 live Sport

Swansea have dominated this game, really. Stoke have changed their shape to a diamond with Crouch leading the line, but it's not made an iota of difference. If either side look more likely to score it's the Swans.

West Ham 0-0 Everton

West Ham break and there's more showboating from Manuel Lanzini, who attempts an overhead kick from inside the box, but his effort goes awry. 

The hosts are pushing for a winner with two minutes of normal time to go.

Hull 2-0 Watford

It's a sea of orange and black inside the Hull half.

Over to you Watford... but the visitors seem content to play keep ball.

Tigers boss Marco Silva will be more than happy with that.

West Ham 0-0 Everton

Finally, *finally*, Everton get a decent ball in to Romelu Lukaku.

It comes looping in from the right-hand side from substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewis, but he can't quite get the angle right and it evades the Toffees' top scorer, who is waiting in the box. 

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 4-0 Middlesbrough

There's another change at the Vitality.

Joshua King had pretty much done his bit for Bournemouth inside two minutes when he broke the deadlock for the hosts.

The forward gets a brief rest. Lys Mousset comes on. 

EFL latest

Play has now resumed at Vale Park....

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 4-0 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough need a hero.

They've called on Rudy Gestede. The big, powerful forward replaces Alvaro Negredo.

Swansea 2-0 Stoke

After five minutes of drama with missed penalties and goals, it's calmed down a bit at the Liberty Stadium.

Stoke's Marko Arnautovic, he of shockingly bad spot-kick fame, has the ball at his feet in the box but he's flagged offside. 

In frustration, he kicks the ball into the crowd. 

Hull 2-0 Watford

It's shut up shop time for Hull. They're looking to see this one out.

That second-half double looks to have done the trick as they enter the final 10 minutes at the KCOM Stadium.

It could be another massive, massive three points for the Tigers.
