Fernando Llorente’s late effort ensures Swansea end on high against West Brom

The only disappointment for Swansea City is that the season has come to an end. Paul Clement’s side have finished the campaign with a flourish, winning four of their last five matches to climb to 15th place and complete a turnaround that seemed implausible at the start of the year.

Swansea had to do it the hard way to pick up this victory, coming from behind after Jonny Evans headed Albion into a first-half lead, and once again it was Fernando Llorente who delivered the decisive blow. The Spaniard volleyed in his 15th goal of the season, and his 10th in his last 11 Premier League appearances at the Liberty Stadium, four minutes from time.

Leon Britton: ‘Swansea fans back me through anything. It’s incredible’

The Londoner has represented Swansea in every division and has such a strong affiliation with Wales that he wore the national team shirt as a fan at the Euros

When Leon Britton was pulling the strings at the Stadium of Light last weekend, a journalist on the BBC’s rolling blog accused Sunderland of making the Swansea City midfielder look like Andrea Pirlo. Robbie Britton, who is a Team GB ultra marathon runner and the Swansea player’s cousin, picked up on the comment and responded on Twitter with: “Hey, BBC Sport, Andrea Pirlo wishes he was Leon Britton.”

Sitting in the canteen at Swansea’s training ground, where the sunshine gleaming through the windows reflects the upbeat mood inside after the Welsh club secured a seventh successive season of Premier League football, Britton breaks into laughter when told about his cousin’s remarks. “That’s nice of him to say that but I don’t think Pirlo’s too worried about me over in New York. I think he would be like: ‘Leon?’”
