Midfielder says team-mates can relax after Crystal Palace beat Hull City to secure Swans' top-flight status

Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton cut a “relieved” figure after Crystal Palace’s victory over Hull City on Sunday confirmed their Premier League safety.

The Swans needed Sam Allardyce’s team to win to avoid having to go into the final match of the season with their top-flight status still on the line, and the Eagles’ 4-0 triumph confirmed Hull’s relegation.

"I’m relieved," Britton said. "It’s been a lot of pressure on each game so it’s nice going into the last game against West Brom being able to relax – I’m sure this week in training we can enjoy it a lot more.”
