    Swansea and Southampton going at it in Wales. The teams are even on 33 points, with the Saints out of the relegation zone only on goal difference. If either team wins, West Brom is down.

    Rooting for the draw to at least keep Darren Moore's miracle alive until Sunday. If I'm not mistaken, it would require:

    Southampton / Swansea draw today
    Southampton / Swansea each losing on Sunday to Manchester City & Stoke respectively
    West Brom winning Sunday
    West Brom's win margin and Southampton's loss margin combining to be at least 5, or 4 with West Brom scoring 5 more goals than Southampton score to level Goals For

    Yeah, a draw keeps West Brom alive, but they'd still need a ton of help.

    A draw also keeps Southampton in 17th on GD, but given that they are playing City and Swansea is home against Stoke, they can't feel good about matching the result.

    And with that, the Saints score!

    If this result holds, it's all but over with Stoke and West Brom down, and Swansea 3 points down and 9 behind in GD.

    EDIT: Actually, Swansea could still jump Huddersfield, who has a worse GD.

    Austin bailed out by Gabbiadini being alert on the rebound

    OK, Stoke and West Brom are down.

    Swansea could get to 36 points with a win against Stoke. Southampton and Huddersfield are already at 36, with the Saints having one game left against City, and Huddersfield playing Chelsea tomorrow and Arsenal Sunday.

    Current GD is Southampton -18, Swansea -27, Huddersfield -29. Saints should be good unless they let City score 6 or 7. Huddersfield may need to scratch out a point somewhere.

    Terriers have two games, at Chelsea and home to Arsenal. Tough two games, but they already got one point against City.

    Yeah, basically if they can pick up a point against Chelsea tomorrow it would make Sunday boring, as it would essentially wrap up both the top 4 and the relegation spots.

    Did you see the Man City game? They fought like hell and were the better team for much of the game. They deserved the point.

    They crapped the bed at home to Everton two weeks ago; that was their easiest game of their run-in and if they'd won that game they'd be safe already. Huddersfield seem to like to do it the hard way. They were promoted last year with a negative GD - the only team ever to do that, I think.

    Huddersfield doing their job against Chelsea, 0-0 at half.

    Arsenal down to 10 men after a last man challenge by Mavropanos, down 1-0 at Leicester

    Absurd sequence off a corner ending with a Lössl save off of Christensen

    Where did 6 minutes of stoppage time come from in this one?

    Well, that simplifies Sunday considerably.

    Liverpool need a point against Brighton. Swansea are down unless City put a half dozen past Southampton.

    Huddersfield holds on--they avoid relegation.

    The last ditch save by Lössl is going to live in HTAFC lore

    https://www.clippituser.tv/c/kawkxw

    The final whistle reaction is pretty great as well

    Though I noticed something - is that Danny Ward coming into the frame on the left at the 0:17 mark? Would be... something given he's not back there on loan this season

    All credit to Huddersfield. In a situation where they needed every single point, getting draws at City and at Chelsea 3 days apart has saved them.

    This is only the 3rd time in Premier League history that all 3 newly promoted teams will avoid relegation.

    The save could.not.be.any.closer.

    And that reaction at the end was tremendous. What a thing to see.

    From the sound of the crowd- that wasn't just the away fans. Even the Chelsea fans must have appreciated what they saw.

    Good for the Terriers.

    I feel bad for any team going down, but I can't find anything good to say about Stoke and West Brom and they deserve to go down. Stoke at least have Butland and Shaqiri who will find buyers. I'm trying to think if there's anyone on West Brom that I would sign and I'm not thinking of anyone.

    Conte walked around the pitch and actually clapped for them.

    So this means Wagner won’t be the next USMNT manager?

    After Sunday’s match Pep gave Wagner a nice warm embrace. His peers are clearly impressed with his work at Huddersfield this season. They are an awesome story, and the defense should be solid again next season. What they’ll need is a couple shrewd transfers to improve their creativity in attack to keep the dream going. Here’s hoping!
