Everton vs Swansea Match Preview
Everton will look to continue their Premier League resurgence when they take on the bottom dwellers Swansea City in their next match. This Everton vs Swansea City match will be played at the Goodison Park on Monday, December 18, so read the match preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
The struggles under Ronaldo Koeman looks a thing of the past for Everton. Though the fans were not rejoicing at the appointment of Sam Allardyce, the Toffees have seen a huge upturn of fortunes. ‘Big Sam’ is yet to lose a match in his Everton reign that started at the end of November and their 1-0 win over Newcastle United makes it four wins and one draw in their last five matches in all competitions. Defensively too, Everton have improved under Allardyce and have kept clean sheets in three of their last four Premier League encounters. Everton are 10th in the league table ahead of this match (22pts, W6, D4, L7) and can move up the table with at least a point in this Everton vs Swansea fixture.
Swansea have been going through doldrums and after the 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City find themselves at the bottom of the pile. They are 20th in the league table before this encounter (12pts, W3, D3, L11) although a win can lift them off the bottom. However, that looks a tough thing for the Swans at the moment, who have won only once in their last nine Premier League matches (D1, L7). The 1-0 win against West Brom at home, in the game before their loss to City, was their only win since the middle of October and that tells a lot about their problems. No team lost more than Swansea (11) this season, nine of their 17 matches (53%) saw them fail to score. No wonder then that they are the least scorers in the league (nine).

Everton vs Swansea City Predictions
Everton to win to nil
Forget about the history of this fixture, going by what Everton have dished out in their recent matches, it would be difficult for Swansea to breach their defence. Also, the visitors are struggling to score at the moment which means the hosts are favourites to win to nil. Backing under 2.5 goals also looks a good betting tip.
