Match Preview

Things have been looking up for the teams on either side of today’s Everton vs Swansea City preview, and though they have had positive recent fortunes to varying degrees, this game should nonetheless be contested by two squads with renewed confidence. The bookmakers make the Toffees clear favourites, which is understandable given their recent upturn in form under new manager Sam Allardyce.

The home team are unbeaten in four heading into today’s free Everton vs Swansea City betting tips. They started their recent impressive sequence with a 4-0 win over a hapless West Ham. The Everton enjoyed seeing their team get one over on former boss David Moyes, and it was Wayne Rooney, who was coached by Moyes at Man Utd, who stole the show with a hat-trick. The Toffees beat Huddersfield and Apollon thereafter, before taking a point in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool.

Swansea City ended a run of eight without a win against WBA at the Liberty Stadium, thanks to a late goal from Wilfried Bony. The win allowed the Swans to climb above Crystal Palace into 19th spot in the Premier League table and if Paul Clement can mastermind a win at Goodison Park, the Welsh club could conceivably find themselves outside the drop zone for the first time in months. Clement will have to find a way to win some points on the road, however – the Swans have won just once in eight on their travels this season.

Everton vs Swansea City Prediction and Betting Advice

The Toffees have sparked into life in recent weeks and though they needed a penalty to claim a point at Liverpool, they showed the kind of resilience that was lacking in the earlier parts of the season. Allardyce will see their clash against the Swans as a great chance to put three more points on the board.

However, the Blues haven’t won this fixture in their last seven meetings with City. And while that statistic cannot be dismissed entirely, it doesn’t have an enormous influence over today’s Everton vs Swansea City bets. It’s now just two defeats in eight for the Evertonians who look like they are finally clicking into gear after a horrific opening few months.

The Swans are the lowest scorers in the Premier League, finding the net just nine times in their sixteen fixtures since the summer. Defensively they have been decent, conceding fewer league goals than Arsenal and Liverpool. Remarkably, Clement’s side have the 5th best defensive record in the division, despite sitting second from bottom. Goals win games, however, and the Welshmen just can’t score them. For that reason, Everton should be able to see them off. Betway’s latest Premier League football odds emerged as the most valuable following our extensive research.

Wayne Rooney, even in his prime, was a player who always seemed to score in bursts rather than for sustained periods of time. It looks as though Rooney is in the middle of such a burst at the moment having scored four times in his last four appearances just prior to today’s Everton vs Swansea City predictions.

Rooney had gone six games without a goal before West Ham visited Goodison Park on October 29th. He helped himself to a magnificent hat-trick that day, crowning his performance with a wonderful first time half volleyed goal from the half way line. Rooney was instrumental in the Toffees 2-0 over Huddersfield in their next fixture, excelling from a deeper position.

In the Merseyside Derby against Liverpool at Anfield, Rooney stepped up to score the pressure penalty and secured his side a point when the defeat looked inevitable. His recent purple patch should ensure he is bouncing into his next game. There is every chance Rooney will be the main man again against a struggling City side.
