Swansea City have managed a remarkable turnaround since Carlos Carvalhal’s appointment in December, but they haven’t secured their safety yet.
The Swans will hope to take a huge step towards their survival when they host Everton at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday. Ahead of the game, the hosts sit in the 15th spot with 32 points, which give them a four-point advantage on the bottom three.
The Welsh side come into this game following a run of three games on the road – a run which produced only two points. Last weekend, they picked up a 1-1 draw at bottom-side West Bromwich.
However, the Swans have been rather impressive in their home games, and they will consider themselves favourites against Everton, who have been terrible on the road.
Everton claimed a creditable goalless draw in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park last Saturday. The Toffees occupy the ninth spot with 41 points. Most of their points have come from homes games this season, but the Toffees did manage to beat Stoke City 1-2 on their last trip.
Over the course of the season, Everton have managed only two away wins in the league, so we don’t see much hope for them on Saturday.
Earlier this season, Everton claimed a 3-1 win over their opponents at Goodison Park.
