  4. 'We've come a long way'

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    Swansea City

    Swansea manager Paul Clement, speaking to BT Sport: "I think Bournemouth deserved their victory. We didn’t do well enough, both defensively and offensively. Going into their first goal, we were doing OK, then their goal knocked the wind out of us. It was a similar situation in the second half.

    "Bournemouth were more clinical than us. We’ve come a long way in the last two and a half months. If the season finished tomorrow, we would be happy.

    "Bournemouth have just shown that if you put in back-to-back wins, you can get yourself out of that situation. We have to do the same. That’s what we spoke about in the dressing room.

    "Wind back to the start of January and the situation we were all in then. Fact is, we’re 17th, out of the bottom three with two home games coming up. There’s lots of football. We’re confident we can still go on and do well this year."

  5. 'We are not feeling we are safe'

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    Bournemouth

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe speaking to BT Sport: "We knew the importance of these two home games, West Ham (last match) and the Swansea game today. 

    "I am really pleased with how the players responded to the challenge. The West Ham game gave us a confidence boost and it showed today.

    "We are not feeling we are safe or have achieved anything. We have to keep our standards up. There is still a way to go but there are pleasing signs that the team are improving with confidence and rhythm. 

    "The players have outstanding attitudes. We pride ourselves on our never say die attitude. We have to protect that.

    "It is a really satisfying feeling to get the wins in these last two games."

  6. Antonio likely to be withdrawn from England duty

    West Ham 2-3 Leicester

    Some news from earlier - West Ham winger Michail Antonio looks likely to be withdrawn from the England squad after injuring his hamstring today.

    Antonio, played the full 90 minutes of the Hammers 3-2 defeat by Leicester, but afterwards reported some trouble with his hamstring.

    "It looks like Michail won't be able to go with the England squad," said Bilic.

    "He felt something. He played the whole game but the medical team have told me now. He didn't limp off, though, so we will see."

  7. Francis pleased with back to back wins

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    Bournemouth

    Bournemouth captain Simon Francis: "We have got back to back wins for the first time this season.

    "It is criminal we have not done it yet. We have been victim taking foot off gas not backing up the week after."

  8. Post update

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    Bournemouth's first clean sheet of 2017, and it came in pretty convincing fashion. Swansea looked better on the attack but their defence was too easily flustered.

  9. 'We can enjoy the international break'

    Bournemouth

    Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe has been speaking to BT Sport.

    Asked whether he should have been awarded his side's first goal, he said: "It doesn't matter. It is about the team. 

    "We have got back-to-back Premier League wins and now we can enjoy the international break and look forward to Southampton. All round, we are happy.

    "Only six months ago I was not used in some games. I had to keep working hard and this is the first time this season I have started three games in a row. I have to keep working hard and, when called upon, score some goals and help the team."

  11. 'An efficient win'

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    John Williams

    Former Bournemouth defender on BBC Radio Solent

    Swansea didn't particularly break Bournemouth down. They had a 10-minute spell where they put a bit of pressure on, but the goalkeeper didn't have too many saves to make. 

    Generally it was an efficient win.

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    So, that win moves Bournemouth nine points clear of the relegation zone. They're up to 11th place.

    Swansea will remain in 17th but they are only three points clear of the relegation zone.

  14. 'A must-win game'

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    John Williams

    Former Bournemouth defender on BBC Radio Solent

    Bournemouth are looking at maybe six to nine more points for safety.

    It was a must-win game. The lads started off in the right manner and as the game went on they got more on top. 

    Getting the second goal helped the players relax and see the game through. 

  15. FULL-TIME

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    There we go! A first clean sheet for Bournemouth since December 31, and their first back-to-back league victories since March 2016.

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    Two late substitutions for Bournemouth. Joshua King first makes way for Max Gradel, before Marc Pugh comes off. He's replaced by Jordon Ibe for the final few seconds.

    John Williams

    Former Bournemouth defender on BBC Radio Solent

    It was a great try and Wilshere got his foot through it but it was just too straight! 

  18. Post update

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    Ooh, Jack Wilshere is in a great position coming down the centre. He takes aim, shoots - and floats the ball rather tamely, straight into Lukasz Fabianski's hands.

    Bournemouth 2-0 Swansea

    Here come Swansea again. Luciano Narsingh gets the ball on the right and floats it in to the back post. Borja Baston's eyes light up but he can't beat his man.
