Swansea City vs Everton
Swansea is walking towards a survival in the Premier League. For a long time, the Swans were in the relegation zone of the league, but they managed to find a better rhythm, which helped them to win some precious points. Right now Swansea is 15th in the standings, being on 4 points above the 18th Southampton.
Of course, Swansea can’t think that they are already safe. They are still in danger, so they need every point they can win until the end of the season.
Right now Swansea’s record shows 8 wins, 8 draws and 16 defeats. In their last five games, they won just once – against West Ham, doing two draws and suffering two losses.
Everton is 9th in the Premier League standings with 41 points. This is a mediocre season for Everton. They started the campaign with big ambitions, especially after spending a lot during the summer. But soon after this the manager Ronald Koeman was sacked, because of bad results. He was replaced by Sam Allardyce, who cemented Everton’s place in the middle of the table.
Right now Everton has a record of 11 wins, 8 draws and 14 losses. In their last five games, the Blues won twice, lost twice and made one draw against Liverpool in the last round.
This shall be a balanced game at the Liberty Stadium. Both teams look pretty even in terms of quality, despite Everton’s better position in the league standings. Swansea should be the more motivated team here, because of their dangerous position in the standings. They are still not safe from relegation, so the Swansea still need to win some points. And they will try to do it
