Swansea City moved to within sight of Premier League survival on Saturday with a comfortable 2-0 victory against a lacklustre Sunderland side already doomed to relegation.

With third-from-bottom Hull City in action 24 hours later 17th-placed Swansea moved four points clear of their rivals with goals by Fernando Llorente and Kyle Naughton.

Spaniard Llorente headed Swansea in front after nine minutes from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s inch-perfect delivery.

Full back Naughton then hammered a stunning angled drive past Jordan Pickford on the stroke of halftime.

Bottom club Sunderland’s resistance was feeble throughout and they proved accommodating hosts as Paul Clement’s Swansea picked up a third win in their last four matches.

Swansea will be safe if Hull lose to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
