'We are confident'

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Swansea City

More from Paul Clement on BBC Sport: "We are confident we can go anywhere and get a result with the form we're in. We're focused on Sunderland on Saturday.

"It's not done. It just shows what happened this weekend, the swing can go with you one week and then go against you. We've got to try and pick up all three points."

'If you don't score, you don't win'

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Everton

Everton manager Ronald Koeman speaking to BBC Sport: "I need to recognise they had good defending in the set plays, we were more dangerous in the second part of the game.

"We didn't create a lot. We need to create chances for him (Romelu Lukaku), support him, that was better in the second half.

"The difference between playing at home and playing away offensively is too big - if you don't score, you don't win.

"The season is 38 games, then you have your final position. Our position will normally be seventh, I am happy with that."

'It was about taking the opportunity'

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Swansea City

Swansea boss Paul Clement on BBC Sport: "We knew the Hull result and it gave us a lift. It was the about taking the opportunity. I told the players to play with their hearts but also intelligently.

"We have conceded one goal in the last three games, a penalty that shouldn't have been given. It shows how good we've been.

On defender Alfie Mawson: "He put in a good performance, as did all the team defensively. We talk about defending collectively, about being compact and working for each other.

"We played a quality side who are in Europe next year. They had a fair few chances as well. When that final whistle went it was a good feeling."

What's Welsh for let's party?

South Wales is going to be rocking tonight.

Newport have pulled off a ridiculous feat and escaped relegation from League Two - despite being 11 points adrift of safety in March. 

Instead, the Football League is waving goodbye to Hartlepool, who go down despite beating promoted Doncaster 2-1.

All the reaction to the final day of the regular League Two season can be found here.

'One of my proudest moments'

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Swansea City

Swansea manager Paul Clement: on BT Sport "It is one of my proudest moments today. What a fantastic, gritty performance. It was so important we got that result today after what happened at Hull.

"We have hit some form both offensively and especially defensively. We have played against really good opposition and seven points from three games is a fantastic tally.

"It gave us a lift before the game knowing that result had gone in our favour, we knew if we did something special we could get out of the relegation zone.

"We really defended well."

'It was not good enough'

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Everton

Everton boss Ronald Koeman: "The difference is one goal, we had maybe more ball possession, it was difficult to create open chances. It was not good enough.

"The final part, we had to be a little bit more aggressive in the box. The problem is in the last few weeks to create chances - we don't score in the last three games.

"In my opinion, seventh position is a good position and next Friday is important to give the fans a win they deserve."

Momentum

Swansea City 1-0 Everton

BBC Radio Wales

Former Crystal Palace & Wales striker Ian Walsh at Liberty Stadium

Swansea have to take this momentum into next week - very important. But don't write off Sunderland, who won today and may be more relaxed now they've gone down. 

I've said for some time that it will all come down to the West Brom game, a week on Sunday.

'I owe the fans and gaffer'

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Swansea City

Swansea defender Alfie Mawson speaking to BBC Sport: "We knew what we had to do, go out there and hope we can get a result regardless of Hull's.

"We were thinking 'please hold on', and Sunderland did us a favour, but we have to go there next week.

"The atmosphere was fantastic. That's why we're paying for 3,000 to come up next week. Through the trenches, they've been with us.

"Romelu Lukaku was a massive threat, but we contained Everton and a clean sheet was a massive plus. Fans just see it as a clean sheet, we see it as much more than that.

"I owe the fans and the gaffer after making a terrible mistake a couple of weeks ago."

'It was all about the three points'

Swansea City 1-0 Everton

BBC Radio Wales

Former Crystal Palace & Wales striker Ian Walsh at Liberty Stadium

A really important result here. Quite a nervy game but at the end of the day it wasn't about the performance, it was all about the three points.

And the celebrations when the final whistle went? Unbelievable.

Swansea were bottom when Paul Clement took over in January.

They've now taken seven points from their last three Premier League games after picking up just one in the six before that. 

Remarkable up-turn in form, really.

'We stood up at squeaky bum time'

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Swansea City

Swansea defender Alfie Mawson: "You can see what it meant to the staff, players and fans, it's another step in the right direction. We have to go again next week, which I'm sure we can do.

"When it comes to squeaky bum time it takes men to stand up and we did that.

"It's mental the atmosphere."

Matt Kowech: Massive points for Swansea. Great character and energy. They deserve to stay up.

Two to go...

FT: Swansea 1-0 Everton

Swansea's fate is in their own hands now.

Next up for them is a (long) trip to Sunderland, who are already down but beat Hull today.

On the final day of the season, the Swans host West Brom. 

Hull, meanwhile, have got a ma-hoosive game against Palace next week, before hosting Tottenham.

'A vital three points'

Swansea City 1-0 Everton

BBC Radio Wales

Former Crystal Palace & Wales striker Ian Walsh at Liberty Stadium

Wonderful, wonderful performance form Swansea. Not the most free-flowing we've seen, but these are a vital three points and it will give the lads a big, big boost.

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Swansea's win and Hull's defeat against Sunderland means the Swans are out of the bottom three for the first time since March.

If Middlesbrough lose on Monday against Chelsea, they're down.

But who is going to be third team to drop down to the Championship? It could be Hull, it could be Swansea, or it could be Crystal Palace who have been sucked right back in with two games to go. 

This is going to go down to the wire. 

FULL-TIME

Swansea 1-0 Everton

What a day for Swansea! Massive, just massive.

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Paul Clement is losing it on the touchline. He is screaming at his players, lunging all over the place. He'll split his trews if he's not careful.

The Swansea fans are in full voice. They're confident they can see this out.

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Three minutes of added time.

How are your nerves, Swansea fans?

'Swansea are being pushed back by Everton'

Swansea City 1-0 Everton

BBC Radio Wales

Former Crystal Palace & Wales striker Ian Walsh at Liberty Stadium

This is amazing, amazing stuff...

Swansea are defending well and are defending in numbers, but they are being pushed back by Everton, deeper and deeper. The Swans are doing well but just haven't got an outlet.

Drama!

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Everton youngster Jonjoe Kenny is rapid! Like a whippet. He's owning that right flank.

He earns Everton a corner, which comes to nothing. Now there's another one coming.

OH MY. NEARLY AN OWN GOAL FROM ALFIE MAWSON! He tries to clear and it skews across the face of the goal.

He looks like he's seen a ghost.

Big drama in League Two

Meanwhile, over in League Two there have been some very, very interesting final-day developments..................

Follow all that here.

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Everton are throwing everything at Swansea now.

A Ross Barkley free-kick is whipped in, Kevin Mirallas heads it on and Ashley Williams is *so* close to getting a touch on it. 

Nervous times ahead for the hosts.

Swansea 1-0 Everton

No more Mr Nice Guys!

We've had no cards so far, but there's a wrestling match occuring between former Swansea man Ashley Williams and Fernando Llorente.

Referee Martin Atkinson has a word with them both but keeps his yellows away on this occasion. 

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Everton are piling forward but Swansea aren't budging at the back.

Fernando Llorente, in the number nine shirt, becomes a make-shift right-back and clumsily clears but it does the job.

Leighton Baines then has a go from distance, but his effort bends well wide.

CLOSE!

Swansea 1-0 Everton

After brilliant break from Everton, Romelu Lukaku has his best chance of the game.

He lets fly, full-throttle, from just outside the area but it hits the side netting. 

Swansea breath a sigh of relief. 

'A wonderful save'

Swansea City 1-0 Everton

BBC Radio Wales

Former Crystal Palace & Wales striker Ian Walsh at Liberty Stadium

A great move by Swansea and a wonderful ball from Tom Carroll into the box. 

An excellent effort from Leroy Fer who did well to keep the ball down, and it forced a wonderful save from Maarten Stekelenburg.

Everton play their final card.

Mason Holgate makes way for young Jonjoe Kenny.

He was born in 1997. Sob. 

CLOSE!

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Mason Holgate makes a speculative punt towards Romelu Lukaku but it comes to nothing and now Swansea break!

A great ball in from Tom Carroll on the left. Leroy Fer is ready and waiting but Maarten Stekelenburg pulls off a great save to stop his effort. 

The Swansea fans got excited there...

And another one. Leroy Fer ON, Ki Sung-yeung OFF.

CLOSE!

Panic in the penalty area!

Kevin Mirallas receives a neat ball in the box but it bounces about like a pinball. Swansea scramble and clear and Mirallas is left wondering what could have been. 

'Swansea are doing well'

Fernando Llorente did well, climbing at the far post and hanging in the air before delivering his header. Swansea are doing well creating multiple corners and chances.

This 1-0 lead is not enough for the Swans and expect the nervousness to crank up with just 20 minutes to go. The players will, I expect, look tighter and more nervy as this game goes on.

CLOSE!

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Two Sigurdsson corners, two chances for Swansea!

Fernandez sends a bullet header goal-bound but it comes off Ross Barkley's shoulder. The Everton sub knew nothing about that.

Then, Fernando Llorente rises high, but his header is saved by Stekelenburg.

You need to be scoring those, really. 

Swansea 1-0 Everton

Oooh, a chance of sorts for Everton. 

Romelu Lukaku wriggles free but can only shoot straight at Lukasz Fabianski.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 1-0 Everton

There we go. Valencia is on and Gareth Barry is off. 

Everton only have one sub left now. Swansea have yet to make any changes.

It looks like Enner Valencia is going to be introduced for Everton.

One of the Toffees coaches has a massive marker pen out and is showing him some doodles. I assume it's instructions and not an awkwardly-timed game of pictionary.
