Good night

Check out the women's FA Cup final, the Stoke v Arsenal game and Fulham v Reading and we'll see you tomorrow.


City two up

It's a long way back from here for Birmingham. 

Heading to safety?

'We owed the fans'

Middlesbrough 1-2 Southampton


Middlesbrough boss Steve Agnew speaking to Match of the Day: "The supporters have been fantastic all season. They've waited a long time to get back in the Premier League and we haven't given them enough, we owed them that lap of appreciation.

"We were disappointed with the first half performance. The penalty miss by Shane Long gave us the initiative and we took it. The goal from Patrick Bamford gave us confidence and believe but didn't get the equaliser.

"Patrick is a very talented young footballer who has not played as much as he would like."

On whether he would like to remain in the job next season: "Times like this are disappointing for all of us but most importantly it's about Middlesbrough getting into a position and a fantastic opportunity to bounce back."

'Big changes needed'

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea


David Moyes

Sunderland boss David Moyes, speaking to BBC Sport: "Everyone watching can see we need big changes. We need to alter the playing staff and I think everyone is aware of that.

"Jordan Pickford has been fantastic for us but he should never have got involved in the free kick and we found it hard chasing the game.

"We lost two players through injury which didn't help. We changed it at half-time but ultimately we needed to impose ourselves on Swansea. The first goal was the turning point."

'My focus is 100% here'

Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley


Bournemouth forward Joshua King: "The aim at the start of the season was to finish higher than last season and we are on the way to doing that.

"I set myself a target of 15 goals at the start of the season. I believe in myself but you can't do anything without your team-mates.

"I have been building on my confidence. Once you start scoring it builds.

"This is my first season where I have scored like this. Next year I need to prove myself and do it again before you can talk about me with Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku.

"I can't wait for next season to start. I've enjoyed it here from day one. Being noticed by other clubs is positive but my focus is 100% here."

'A difficult end to the game'

Middlesbrough 1-2 Southampton


Southampton boss Claude Puel speaking to Match of the Day: "It was a little difficult at the end of the game. It was difficult with the long ball but it was important to get a good result.

"We made seven changes and it's important for the squad - many players improve and can show they have a good spirit.

"I hope we can finish strong with the two last games at home. I'm satisfied because we have done good work with all the players."

'It's not done'

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

Swansea City

Swansea boss Paul Clement, speaking to BBC Sport: "It's a huge result for us. We've got ourselves into a strong position but the season is not over and we don't think it is done. Now have to look to next week. 

"There's still one game to go. We'll be looking at the Crystal Palace and Hull game with a lot of interest but we can be happy with our work today. 

"It was a bit of a messy second half but we got the job done."

On Kyle Naughton's rare goal: "A lot of those go in our car park at the training ground. That goal was a great moment."

'We need to keep our best players'

Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley


Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: "A really good day for us. We are safe and it was asked if our standards would drop but we didn't.

"I signed Sam Vokes for Burnley and he scored a great header, but we showed that we can bounce back and go again.

"Our goals were executed really well. We can shake off the odd knock and setback and we have won many points after going behind.

"Josh King has been excellent, Every team needs a goalscorer and someone to lead the line. There is more to come from him too.

"Will we lose him in the summer? I don't think so. We love working with him, hopefully he feels the same. We need to keep our best players and we will do everything in our power to do that."

'Our fans deserved that'

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

Swansea City

Swansea City captain Leon Britton, speaking to BBC Sport: "Our support was brilliant. They were very vocal especially towards the end. It's been a difficult season for them - three managers and fighting relegation. They deserved that today. 

"We'll speak in the changing room now and it'll be nice to watch the Crystal Palace and Hull match all together."

Team news

'Every time I start I think I can score'

Middlesbrough 1-2 Southampton


Boro striker Patrick Bamford: "Even when we've played badly, we owe it to the fans because they have to spend their hard-earned money to come and watch us.

"Their missed penalty was a bit of a turning point but in the first half we weren't up to scratch. We had to make a difference but it didn't take until the penalty for us to do that.

"It's been a while since I last scored - but every time I start a game, I believe that I'll score. I think I've only started two games in about two years though.

"If we keep the majority of our squad together that experience counts in the Championship and we'll look to get promoted back again."

Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley


Bournemouth goalscorer Junior Stanislas: "I thought we played really well. Burnley are resolute so it is hard to break them down.

"I’ve been frustrated this season, every time I get going I get niggles. I’m delighted to be on the scoresheet. Our first objective was to stay in the league and then beat last season’s points tally – we’ve done that."

'One game too many'

Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley


Burnley boss Sean Dyche: "We gave away two really soft goals. We have had some big results lately and we looked flat today. Maybe it was one game too many.

"Josh King was the difference today I thought. He has been on fire and he played well again today.

"I can't be overly disappointed but it was a flat second half."

'Massive win'

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

Swansea City

Swansea City captain Leon Britton, speaking to Sky Sports: "It's a massive win. We knew coming up here that by playing before Hull a win would put the pressure on. It wasn't pretty at times.

"Fernando [Llorente] has been massive for us. He may have come in for a bit of criticism a couple of weeks ago but he's been outstanding for us."

Will you be watching the Palace-Hull game? 

"I think the team will get together to watch it."

When Newcastle were relegated last year, their fans used the last home game to convince Benitez to stay. Not suprised to hear the Sunderland fans weren't going out of their way today to convince Moyes to stay.


Sunderland have no hope in the Championship. It's tough, and they won't be Premier League pampered. I would put money on them doing a double-relegation.

'We should see the game out'

Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley


Burnley striker Sam Vokes: "It was a tough game, Bournemouth played well. But to get back into it so late it is disappointing not to get a point.

"It wasn't to be. We should see the game out. We want to end the season on a high with a win at home next week."

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

Jermain Defoe does a half-hearted lap of honour/goodbye at the Stadium of Light. Surely he's now off? 

'Feet up'

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

John Hartson

Ex-Celtic and Wales striker on BBC Radio 5 live

What a great win for Swansea City on the road. They have done their end of the business. Now Swansea's players can put their feet up tomorrow and watch the result from Crystal Palace against Hull.

What do Hull need to do?

Crystal Palace v Hull City (Sunday 12:00 BST)

Hull City

Swansea's win means that Hull will be relegated if they lose on Sunday.

If Hull draw, Hull would need a minimum seven-goal swing on the final day of the season to stay up.

So basically, Hull must win...

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

The Swansea players move down to the 3,000 travelling fans for some mutual respect.

The Swans players paid for those tickets today, and the fans were rewarded with an easy, easy win which has pushed them to the brink of safety.

Swansea fans

Jermain Defoe is tackled on the edge of the area. That could be the last that Sunderland fans see of him at the Stadium of Light. 

'Huge credit to Clement'

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

John Hartson

Ex-Celtic and Wales striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Swansea have come into form at the right time and have won three out of four. They were rock bottom when Paul Clement came in so you have to give him huge credit.

I know Fernando Llorente has been heavily linked with Antonio Conte, and Swansea won't want to lose him. He's been outstanding for the past three or four months.


Middlesbrough 1-2 Southampton

Boro close to a late, late equaliser! Defender Calum Chambers lets fly from 20 yards, catches it as sweet as a nut but Fraser Forster makes the flying save.

Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

Jermain Defoe has a shot pushed away and there is barely a gasp from the Sunderland fans who have remained in the Stadium of Light.

Plenty more fans leave the stadium.

Josh King (85 mins)

That didn't last long!

2017's hottest striker Josh King slots in his 16th goal of the season as Ryan Fraser finds him at the near post, and the Norwegian is razor sharp to slot under Tom Heaton from a tricky angle.

It's a cracking header too, glancing in from Johann Gudmundsson's teasing right-wing cross.
