    Swansea 3-0 Sunderland

    Swansea continuing to play positively despite being in injury time. Jefferson Montero's tenacity earns his team a corner, but the referee blows the whistle before Leon Britton can add his creative spark.

    Swansea fans sing Hymns and Arias... serenading their team in what has been an impressive display in a must-win match.

    Swansea 3-0 Sunderland

    It looks likely that Swansea will end this game with a clean sheet, which will be a boost for a defence which has been under fire of late. The home team keeping possession, spraying the ball around with ease. There will be three minutes of added time.

    Leon Britton with a through-ball to Oliver McBurnie, but there's just a tad too much oomph on the pass for the replacement striker. It has been a fine performances from the Swansea captain, however.

    Another change for Sunderland. Javier Manquillo replacing Steven Pienaar.


    Swansea 3-0 Sunderland

    Swansea pressing high, forcing Sunderland to cede possession. 

    Warm applause for goalscorer Fernando Llorente as he makes way for Oliver McBurnie. The striker has earned his corn this afternoon.

    Fernando Llorente (80 mins)

    And that, as they say, must be that. Leon Britton wins back the ball in Sunderland's half and the men in white surge forward. The captain frees Jefferson Montero down the left and the substitute's delicate cross presents Fernando Llorente with a simple close-range header.

    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Swansea camped in the opposition half without troubling Jordan Pickford in the past few minutes.


    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Swansea by far the better side in this half and are on course for a crucial win. Modou Barrow is replaced by Jefferson Montero with under 15 minutes remaining.

    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Victor Anichebe wins a free-kick on the edge of the Swansea box. Jay Fulton and Jordi Amat man-handling the Sunderland striker. Is this where momentum swings Sunderland's way? Nope. 

    Papy Djilobodji with a free-kick into the wall and he lets Swansea off the hook.

    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Sunderland enjoying possession in the last minute or so. Victor Anichebe allowed to turn on the edge of the box, his cross deflects off a Swansea defender towards Jermain Defoe but the striker's first-time shot on the turn is wide.

    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Gylfi Sigurdsson pulling the strings, head and shoulders above anyone else on the pitch. 

    Swansea surging forward once again, but the move breaks down as they near the box. Sunderland attempt a counter-attack, but it comes to nothing. 

    Swansea oozing confidence but, as we know, confidence is a brittle thing at the bottom end of the table, and there's still 25 minutes to go.

    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Trickery from Modou Barrow earns his team a corner. Swansea bossing it. Can they inflict what would surely be the killer blow? Gylfi Sigurdsson not as menacing with the dead ball this time, however. 

  14. CLOSE!

    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Another brilliant save from Jordan Pickford. Gylfi Sigurdsson with a free-kick which finds Jordi Amat but the defender's header is kept out by the acrobatic Pickford. 

  15. Post update

    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    A lovely turn from Leon Britton, setting his team forward once again. The diminutive midfielder picks out Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Iceland international with another dreamy cross towards the far post which Modou Barrow side-foots to Fernando Llorente, who is unable to make contact. Had he been able to get a foot on it then it surely would've been Swansea's third of the day. 


    Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    David Moyes is the first manager to shuffle his pack, and understandably so with his team currently back at the bottom of the table. He brings on Jan Kirchhoff for Didier Ndong.

    If Gylfi Sigurdsson's goal brought sighs of relief to Swansea City fans, Fernando Llorente's has sent them into raptures.

    Sigurdsson had a hand again - he usually does - with a smart, low corner.

    And Llorente's finish was equally smart and low. Cue bedlam in the stands.

    Jason Denayer must hate playing against Welsh sides.

    In 2015, the Belgium defender's foul led to the free-kick which allowed Gareth Bale to score the winner for Wales in a Euro 2016 qualifier.

    Earlier this summer at the European Championship itself, the Belgian was run ragged by Hal Robson-Kanu as Wales claimed a famous 3-1 quarter-final win.

    Now he's conceded a penalty on Welsh soil to gift Swansea what could be a crucial goal in this vital relegation encounter.

  19. GOAL Swansea 2-0 Sunderland

    Fernando Llorente (54 mins)

    How about that? Moments after Modou Barrow goes close, forcing a fine save from Jordan Pickford, the hosts double their lead. Gylfi Sigurdsson is the architect, his canny corner finding Fernando Llorente, who sweeps it home from six yards. The home fans are now in full voice.

    Swansea 1-0 Sunderland

    As it stands, Swansea move to third-from-bottom while Sunderland drop to the root of the table. But there's plenty of football left to play, as they say.
