MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Everton

11th April

The Swans go in search of a record Premier League points total when they face Everton at the Liberty on Saturday (12.45pm).
The Swans welcome Roberto Martinez's side to SA1 knowing victory would see them surpass their previous best top-flight points total of 47.
Monk's men currently sit on 46 points following last Saturday's win over Hull, while they could also win three straight league matches for the first time since August.
Swansea face an Everton side this weekend who have won their last three league games to all but secure safety in the Premier League.
The Toffees impressed during this season's Europa League but have struggled to find the eye-catching form that led them to a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League last season.

Swans boss Garry Monk: "A lot of people have questioned in recent weeks what we have to play for.
"It (points total) was one of the targets we set at the start of the season and we have a great chance to do that.
"We have seven games to go, we are one point behind it and hopefully we'll surpass that and push on from there."

Everton boss Roberto Martinez: "I don't think they (Swansea) have had a really bad spell. They have found a way to cope with injuries, suspensions and players sold in the January window and that shows you a real sign of a team mentality.
"They have really good organisation and their work ethic is fantastic; Garry Monk knows the club and the dressing room inside-out and that shows in the performances they put in."

  • Bafetimbi Gomis has scored three goals in his last two Premier League appearances, one more than he managed in his previous 25 PL apps for the Swans (2)
  • Everton have won 13 and lost none of their 19 league games against Swansea
  • The visitors are looking to win four successive league games for the first time this season
  • Swansea's Ki Sung-Yueng has scored four goals in his last eight Premier League games with the last three all coming inside the opening 30 minutes
  • Everton's last eight Premier League goals have been scored by different players (including an own goal by Leicester's Matt Upson)
