​Swansea's Sigurdsson fires warning at relegation rivals Hull

Gylfi Sigurdsson has warned Hull that Swansea, with just three games remaining, will not let up in their battle for Premier League survival.

Sigurdsson's brilliant equalising free-kick against Manchester United on Sunday kept Swansea within two points of 17th-placed Hull.

"We're a point closer now to hope," he said after the match at Old Trafford. "It doesn't give Hull too much breathing space and they can't afford to slip up too many times now. It was important for us not to be going away with nothing.

"We're getting to the end of the season where teams are fighting for their lives and they are going to get results. We're focusing on ourselves and putting the pressure on them so we don't give them any chances to escape.

"I think it is going to go all the way to the last game. They probably didn't expect us to get anything from the game today. It's good for us to cancel out the point they got."
