  1. FULL-TIME

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    This game had the potential to be a nerve-wrecker for Swansea. As it turned out, it couldn't have been more comfortable. 

    Sunderland end their home campaign with the sound of boos ringing in their ears.

  2. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Swansea are seeing the clock down, stroking the ball around with ease.

  3. 'Huge credit to Clement'

    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.

  4. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    30 seconds of normal time remaining. This game has only been going one way since the ninth minute.

    Jermain Defoe
  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    One final Swansea change. Off goes one of the chief protagonists of Swansea's now likely escape from the drop, Fernando Llorente, to be replaced by Luciano Narsingh. 

  6. YELLOW CARD

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Fabio Borini is the next man in the book. You have a bit of sympathy for him. Not over the yellow, that is completely deserved, but for the lack of support he got from team-mates as he tore around trying to win the ball before clattering Kyle Naughton.

  7. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Oh dear, that is dreadful.

    Sunderland have a corner, which Seb Larsson plays low and straight to a Swansea player on the edge of the box. Darron Gibson then fouls a breaking Swansea player to get a booking.

    The home fans are flooding out the doors now.

  8. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Sunderland have been better this half. But they have wasted some great chances. This is another. Wahbi Khazri drives into the box and sets up Jermain Defoe but his drive flashes past the post. 

  9. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    It's all kicking off.

    Wahbi Khazri fouls Gylfui Sigurdsson to send him down to the turf and then drives in a boot that almost lands on the Iceland midfielder. Pushing and shoving ensues before the ref steps in and books Khazri. That would have been red had his boot connected.

    Wahbi Khazri
  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Captain Leon Britton gets huge applause from the away fans as he is replaced by Jack Cork. It was Britton's idea that the players pay for the fans to attend this game. Now that is a proper club man.

  11. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Sunderland win another corner. Wahbi Khazri takes this time but Fernando Llorente is in acres of space to head clear. Cue a second change for the away side... 

  12. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Sunderland are giving it a bit of a go at least. They win a corner that Seb Larsson swings over... everyone and the goal. Goal-kick.

  13. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Oh, how have Sunderland not scored?!

    Lukasz Fabianski palms out Wahbi Khazri's free-kick and Billy Jones is the fastest to react. He has the whole goal at his mercy and a floored goalkeeper to beat but puts his shot past the post. He had a defender for company but that is no excuse.

  14. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Change for Swansea. Ki Sung-yueng, who picked up a knock a few minutes ago, departs to be replaced by Leroy Fer. Ki gets a small round of applause from the home fans in recognition of his loan spell here a while back, when things weren't quite so grim. 

  15. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Plenty of Sunderland fans have already left the ground. There were plenty of empty seats at kick-off as well. Can't imagine it has gone unnoticed by the club's hierarchy.

  16. 'Sick of hard luck stories'

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    I just hope David Moyes doesn't come out after the game and say we were unlucky. I'm sick of hearing that one.

    David Moyes
  17. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Sunderland aren't happy, least of all Seb Larsson. His free-kick cracks into the wall and loops into the hands of Lukasz Fabianski. The home side reckon Gylfi Sigurdsson blocked with his hands and want a penalty. The ref disgrees and, when Larsson refuses to drop his protests, books the midfielder.

    Sunderland may well have a case, though. Gylfi jumped and his arms were involved in the block.

    Any chance the sense of injustice will spur Sunderland on?

  18. Swans can't drop off

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    John Hartson

    Ex-Celtic and Wales striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    Swansea City have just got to see the game out. That is an art in itself. They've got to make sure they don't drop off and invite pressure. 

    Fernando Llorente
  19. Post update

    Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

    Sunderland try to get something going but Didier Ndong's pass is a touch too heavy for Javier Manquillo, who is beaten to the ball in the box by the sliding Fabianski.

  20. Where's the oomph?

    Sunderland cannot play as bad as they did in the first half. It was an inept performance. There was no oomph about them.
