Everton vs Swansea Predictions

Everton put in one of the worst performances in years before the international break as they were decimated 5-0 at the hands of a rampant Chelsea. This reverted them back to the poor form that has plagued them for the last couple of months and leaves people wondering how such a talented group of players can perform so badly.

They have now won just one of their last seven in all competitions, losing four of them and sitting 7th in the Premier League table thanks to their early season good form. It looks like the Koeman effect has worn off, and they’re back to disappointing the Goodison Park faithful like they did last year.

Everton do have undoubted talent though, and the most dangerous player for them is proving his worth despite his teams’ poor showings. Romelu Lukaku has netted seven Premier League goals so far this season and has three in his last five matches. Considering Swansea’s defensive issues, backing Lukaku to score anytime at 5/6 is an obvious choice for our goalscorer predictions.

Swansea appointed Francesco Guidolin on a permanent basis in the summer, but a terrible start to the season has seen him replaced by American Bob Bradley already. It hasn’t gone well for the new boss either though, indicating that this teams’ troubles can’t be pinned on the manager.

Since Bradley’s appointment Swansea have lost three and drawn one, taking their winless streak to ten matches in all competitions. Their last Premier League victory was on the opening day of the season against newly promoted Burnley, and since then they have lost eight and drawn two to leave them second from bottom in the table.

Away from home Swansea have lost four on the bounce now and conceded nine goals in the process. They have managed to score in all but one of their trips away though, which has made for some relatively high scoring matches. Three of their last four on the road have seen at least three goals scored, as have six of Everton’s last 12.

The Everton attack will feel very confident about bagging a few at home to the disappointing Swansea though, and our predictions are definitely leaning towards an Everton win. The hosts have only kept one clean sheet in their last eight games though, so Swansea getting on the scoresheet is definitely on the cards. This nudges our predictions towards a high scoring game as well, so I think the best option is to back an Everton Win and Over 2.5 Goals at 6/5 alongside a 3-1 correct score predictions at 12/1.
