[11th-Apr-15] Match Preview: Swansea City – Everton
Swansea will be without Kyle Naughton, who is out for the remainder of the Premier League season with an ankle ligament injury. Jefferson Montero is a game-time decision for the Swans. Everton look set to be without striker Romelu Lakaku, who is recovering from a hamstring injury while midfielder Darron Gibson is out for the rest of the season. Aiden McGeady, Tony Hibbert, and Bryan Ovideo are also out for the Toffees.
Swansea has yet to beat Everton in the Football League, going an unimpressive 0-6-13 in their 19 meetings. They come into the game with two in form player, Bafetimbi Gomis, who has scored 3 in his last 2 league games for the Swans and Ki Sung-Yueng, who has 3 in his last 4 Premier League games. Swansea are also only 2 points short of getting their best ever top flight total for a season. Everton are coming off of 3 straight Premier League wins for the first time all season and have 5 clean sheets in their last 10 Premier League games. Everton also boast the league’s highest scoring defenseman, Seamus Coleman, who is on 9 goals this year.
Prediction: Wild game with lots of attacking. Can see Swansea just being slightly better since Everton will be without Lakaku.
