Swansea v Everton
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6th May 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK Time
Venue: Liberty Stadium, Swansea.
Swansea will meet Everton in the Premier League’s early evening Saturday kick off. Swansea desperately needs all three points as they are in 18th position and 2 points from safety. Realistically only Hull City could now get involved in the relegation dog fight and this will be a nervous match for the Swans.
A 3 game losing streak was stopped when Swansea beat Stoke 2-0 and then got a superb draw away to Manchester United. So the club will enter this game in good spirits.
At home Swansea have the 4th worst record in the league but they do have encouraging signs with just one loss in their last five games and that did come to high flying Tottenham.
Everton have been very good without being spectacular but manager Ronald Koeman has warmed to the fans and his debut season has been solid. Everton will qualify for the Europa League in the position they have but they still look destined to finish 7th.
The visitors have gone their last 2 games without a goal and so will be looking to end that here. The problem for Everton is that they have just 4 wins away from home all season and have no wins on the road in 2017.
