Stoke game a 'must-win' for Swansea in relegation fight

Cape Town - Swansea City manager Paul Clement says that he would want to work with outgoing Chelsea captain John Terry if they survive relegation.

A awful run of one point from six games has Swansea sitting 18th in the table, two points adrift of safety with five matches left to play as they prepare for the visit of 11th-placed Stoke.

Hull, who are two points better off than Swansea in 17th position, have a kinder-looking run-in, starting at home to mid-table Watford on Saturday. "That is not something I have thought about at this point, we have to focus on the players and games we have got", he told reporters.

"I hope the players respond, they have not responded well over the last six games when pressure has been there but we have to perform to alleviate it", Clement added. "They play against Arsenal, they've got a game in hand, so they're not dead and buried".

"It was a game that summed up our last few away performances to be honest".

Swansea City manager Paul Clement confirms that he would be interested in signing Chelsea skipper John Terry should his side avoid relegation this season.

Terry, 36, will leave Chelsea at the end of the season but intends to continue playing on, although Standard Sport understands the defender will only make a decision about his future once the current campaign ends.

NEW YORK (AP) - With its biggest star departing in another blowup over sexual harassment, Fox News faces some big challenges. Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed O'Reilly was in the VIP section for the pope's Wednesday appearance.

"But having worked with John, I know what a fantastic player he is and what a career he has had".

"If we stay up why wouldn't we be interested?". "I'd be more than happy to speak to him".

The importance of beating Stoke is not lost on Clement with Swansea's next two games being at Manchester United and at home to in-form Everton.

Swansea's final two games are at bottom-placed Sunderland and at home to West Brom.

"You see odd results every week and you know you can't rely on other teams picking up or dropping points, it has to be about what we do".

"A must-win game. There's no magic answer to getting the right result".
