The Premier League match between Swansea and Everton will be broadcast on NBC.

Everton have never lost a Premier League match at Liberty Stadium, conceding just twice in five previous visits there (W3 D2). Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

Not only will manager Paul Clement be happy with the result, today was probably the best Swansea have defended all season. Find out by following our live matchcast. After a scoreless first half, Chelsea broke through in the 66th minute when Pedro scored a handsome goal from outside of the box.

"We have played well in the last two games and we go into the Everton game with a lot of confidence", Clement said.

"But this will be the best by far if we manage to stay in this league, because I'm the one making the decisions".

City climbed above Liverpool into third place on goal difference, and opened up a four-point gap to fifth-place Manchester United, which plays at Arsenal on Sunday.

As well as the Toffees visiting Wales this weekend, West Brom will travel to face a Swansea side that have taken nearly double the number of points at home as they have on the road.

Swansea City won 1-0 at home to give themselves a huge boost in their relegation fight in Saturday's late game.

The all-important goal by Fernando Llorente ended up being a stroke of luck.

Of the Tigers' regular starting line-up, only the likes of Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone have top-level pedigree, but even the former Spurs duo are relatively new to relegation battles.

Billy Jones struck in the 69th minute and Jermain Defoe added a second goal in injury time at the KCOM Stadium for Sunderland, which was relegated last weekend when Hull drew at Southampton thanks to a last-minute penalty save.

The match will kick off at 5.30pm on Saturday 6 May. The side looked as though there was too much consideration for the backline rather than pressing forwards and it proved to be Swansea's downfall against Hull - we can't afford this against Bournemouth.

Swansea City keep their Premier League survival hopes alive thanks to a narrow 1-0 victory over Everton.

Mawson then almost put through his own net in the 90th minute when he deflected Lukaku's effort narrowly over the bar.

Everton striker Romanu Lukaku headed tamely at home keeper Lukasz Fabianski from just inside the area, while at the other end, Gylfi Sigurdsson wastefully chipped a 30 yard free kick wastefully into the arms of Maarten Stekelenburg - despite everyone seemingly expecting Swansea's talisman to shoot.
