Swansea, however, needs a lot of help from both its rivals to move from 18th to safety.

Swansea City will be relegated if…

— It fails to defeat visiting Stoke City on Sunday.

or

— It wins against Stoke City but Huddersfield Town gets a point or more from either of its remaining matches (Wednesday at Chelsea and Sunday versus Arsenal)

and

Southampton doesn’t lose to Man City — or — loses to Man City without a change in goal differential (Swans’ differential is nine goals worse than Saints).

Huddersfield Town will be relegated if…

— It loses at Chelsea on Wednesday and home to Arsenal on Sunday.

and

— Swansea beats Stoke City on Sunday

and

— Southampton draws or beats Manchester City on Sunday — or — Southampton loses to Manchester City by a wild amount of goals (The goal differential currently favors Saints by 11, and this scenarios sees Huddersfield’s goal differential take at least a two-goal hit).

Southampton will be relegated if…

— It loses at home to Manchester City

and

— Huddersfield Town draws or beats Chelsea on Wednesday or Arsenal on Sunday

and

— Swansea City beats Stoke City and its margin of victory combined with Southampton’s losing margin against Man City overcomes nine goals worth of differential.
