SunSport columnist runs the rule over the relegation battle after huge wins for Huddersfield, West Ham and Swansea

Since Carlos Carvalhal took over at the end of December, Swansea have lost only one of their seven Prem games.

They were defeated by Spurs but have won four including against Arsenal and Liverpool.

The key thing is that in those games they have conceded six  and scored nine. In the seven previous games they conceded 16 and scored just four.
