Swansea City v Everton Preview, Premiership, Sunday 22nd December 2013

Swansea City head into this game on Sunday afternoon having had a mixed bag of results so far from their opening 16 matches played which has seen Michael Laudrup’s side record 5 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats and only 1 victories in their last 5 matches in all competitions.

In fact Swansea City were very fortunate to progress through to the knock out stages of the Europa League as if Kuban’ Krasnodar had managed a victory against Valencia in their final game of the group Swansea City would have been eliminated from the competition having lost their final game against bottom of the group St Gallen and with injuries being the main cause of the poor form recently, Everton will certainly fancy their chances of winning this game come sunday afternoon.

Everton are having an excellent season so far and remain the only club in the Premiership to have lost just one game this season, that defeat coming back on the 5th October when Roberto Martinez’s side went down 3-1 away to Manchester City. However that defeat was soon put behind them with victories following over Hull City, Aston Villa, Manchester United and Fulham and with the way Everton are playing at the moment they do look the more likely to win this game on Sunday afternoon.

Swansea City Team News:

The hosts have a whole host of players missing from this game with Alan Tate, Gary Monk, Nathan Dyer and Álvaro Vázquez García all still out receiving treatment for respective injury problems. Miguel Michu is a doubt also as he continues to struggle with an ankle problem, but he does look likely to be involved if he can past a late fitness test.

4-3-3 looks the likely formation that manager Michael Laudrup will deploy for this game which will see Wilfried Bony leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Michu, Hernandez and Shelvey.

Striker Wilfried Bony and Midfielder Nathan Dyer are the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 4 each.

Everton Team News:

Leighton Baines, Tony Hibbert, Darron Gibson, Arouna Koné and Gerard Deulofeu will all miss this game for the visitors as each player continues to recover from respective injury problems. 4-2-3-1 looks the likely formation that manager Roberto Martinez will use for this game which will see Lukaku leading the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Pienaar, Barkley and Mirallas.

Striker Romelo Lukaku is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 8.

Swansea City v Everton Match Betting Odds Market

Swansea City have not been in the best of form lately and going up against a side like Everton who have it should not come as much surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up at odds of 2/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) to win this one.

The Draw has not been an outcome that happens much when these two clubs have met previously, but it does seem the best result that Swansea City can get in my opinion, so it might be worth having a cover bet on the Draw at odds of 12/5 with Sky Bet (£30 Free Bets for New Customers) as if Everton dont win I would expect either a 1-1 or 2-2 score-line.

Everton are the clear favourites with the online bookmakers to win this game and can be backed at a current best price of 6/4 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) to keep their excellent run going on sunday afternoon, which for me is decent value considering they have yet to lose against Swansea City.

Swansea City v Everton Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I really like Everton’s chances of winning this game on sunday afternoon as they are playing some excellent football at the moment under the guidance of new manager Roberto Martinez and with Swansea City having struggled in recent months to win games and having never managed to beat Everton in any of the previous 8 meetings, the away win looks nailed on here at a decent price.

However, Swansea City do have the all important home advantage and when they are on their game they can prove a very difficult side to beat, so it would definitely be worth-while covering the correct score of 1-1 or 2-2 as your main cover bet here.

The goal statistics expect this game to see at least a couple of goals scored, so betting markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Total Match Goals 2 or 3 and Anytime Goalscorer’s could also provide some additional value, but I’m going to go for the visitors to win this game and carry on what has been a very good season so far for them.
