Swansea – 1 win – 2 losses – 3 points – Losers

Hull – 2 losses – 1 draw – 1 point – Losers

Bottom clubs Swansea and Hull remain exactly where they were prior to the start of the festive period.

Each team also handed out pink slips to their managers.

Pardon the pun, but the Swans kicked things off with a hammering at the hands of the Hammers. West Ham ran riot in Wales and easily defeated the home side 1-4.

This led to the firing of head coach Bob Bradley after just two months in charge of the club.

Proving that Bradley is not the problem, the Swans were again humiliated at home on New Year’s Eve. Bournemouth came to town and left with a 0-3 win and three points.

Under new manager Paul Clement, Swansea gave the fans some hope as they won 1-2 away at Crystal Palace.

It’s looking more inevitable that Hull will be relegated this season.

No one expected the Tigers to get anything from a visit by Manchester City; and they didn’t. City won easily 0-3.

Hull had a 2-1 lead at home to Everton, but couldn’t hold on. Ross Barkley equalized in the 84th minute for a 2-2 draw.

A Robert Snodgrass 21st minute goal gave Hull a great start to 2017. Unfortunately the new year magic didn’t last long as West Brom scored three second half goals.

Manager Mike Phelan was relieved of his duties earlier this week and was replaced by former Olympiakos and Sporting Lisbon coach Marco Silva.
