Past meetings: Swans v Everton
As the Swans get set to face Everton in the Premier League this weekend, we look back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here we recall past clashes in the Premier League and the League Cup.
Swans 1 Everton 0
Premier League – Saturday, May 6, 2017
Fernando Llorente scored the only goal as the Swans claimed a critical home victory over Everton as last season’s relegation scrap came to a climax.
The Swans had beaten Stoke and then drawn at Manchester United to give themselves hope of scrambling to safety.
Then, having seen Hull suffer a shock home defeat against Sunderland, Paul Clement’s team climbed out of the bottom three by battling their way to three points against Everton.
Llorente nodded home from Jordan Ayew’s cross after 29 minutes.
Alfie Mawson was denied before Ayew hit the post, while Leroy Fer also came close to doubling the lead.
The Swans’ failure to stretch their advantage did not matter, however, as Llorente’s goal proved decisive.
Swans 1 Everton 1
Premier League – Saturday, April 11, 2015
The Swans had never won a league game against Everton in 19 attempts heading into this meeting at the Liberty.
And the winless run was stretched to 20 as Garry Monk’s side were forced to settle for a draw against Roberto Martinez’s Blues.
Aaron Lennon gave Everton the lead in the first half when he steered home from James McCarthy’s cross.
Jonjo Shelvey was denied a spectacular goal when his long-range strike was chalked off for a foul in the build-up, but the midfielder levelled from the penalty spot midway through the second half after Seamus Coleman’s handball.
The draw took the Swans to 47 points from 32 league games, equalling what was their record tally in the Premier League.
Swans 3 Everton 0
League Cup – Tuesday, September 23, 2014
The Swans claimed their first ever win over Everton in any competition as Garry Monk’s team delivered a resounding cup success.
Jefferson Montero was in impressive form down the Swans’ left, and his delivery saw Nathan Dyer put the home side in front just before the half hour.
Future Toffee Gylfi Sigurdsson doubled the Swans’ lead on 65 minutes, the Icelander netting from close range after Sylvain Distin nodded a Jonjo Shelvey cross on to his own bar.
Roberto Martinez threw on Romelu Lukaku in an attempt to turn the tie around, but it was Swans sub Marvin Emnes who drilled home to round off a good night for Monk’s men.
