Everton vs Swansea City Preview

Everton vs Swansea City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Goodison Park

Date: 18th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Sam Alladyce was not the most popular candidate among some Everton fans and board members before his appointment as their head team coach, but his results so far must have silenced his critics even though his brand of football is not as impressive.

The Toffees head into this game unbeaten in their last five competitive matches with four of those games ending in wins.

Their 1-0 win over Newcastle last time out has seen them move to tenth in the league table and open up an 8 points cushion over the drop zone.

They are entering a period where they play four winnable games that could see them move further up the league table as they face Chelsea, West Brom and Bournemouth after this game.

The Toffees have become very confident at both ends of the pitch as they have kept a clean sheet in all but one of their last five games while scoring at least a goal in all of those games too.

Swansea City’s form is in direct opposite with their host ahead of this game; with the Welsh side currently rock bottom of the league table following their 4-0 loss at home to Manchester City last time out.

They beat West Brom 1-0 prior to that game against Manchester City however that was the first time they tasted victory since October and they have 8 losses from their last 10 competitive games.

They started the season strongly away from home but their last away game ended in a 2-1 loss which means they have now lost all 5 of their last five away games.

With the improved form Everton is showing, it is hard to see Swansea causing them any major trouble in this game.

The Swans have won two and drawn four of their last six meetings with Everton.
