PREVIEW: Everton v Swans

22nd March 2014

The Swans will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's defeat when they take on Everton at Goodison Park (3pm).
Garry Monk's side suffered a setback last Saturday when they lost at home to fellow strugglers West Bromwich Albion - a result that left the Swans just three points clear of the relegation zone.
And they face a tough test on Saturday when they travel to a ground where they are yet to record a victory.
In fact, the Swans have never beaten in Everton in any competition - and have scored just one goal against them in their three seasons in the Premier League.
Roberto Martinez's side have already beaten Swansea twice this year - a 2-1 success at the Liberty back in December and a 3-1 victory in the FA Cup last month.
The Toffees have enjoyed a fine season thus far under Martinez, sitting sixth in the table, just two points behind fifth-placed Spurs with two games in hand as they chase European football.

The Swans are boosted by the return of Jonjo Shelvey and Nathan Dyer after the pair sat out last week's defeat through injury, and Chico Flores returns from suspension.
Everton, meanwhile, will be without midfielder Steven Pienaar and the home side will assess the fitness of Phil Jagielka (hamstring).

Everton boss Roberto Martinez: "I've been nothing but impressed with Gary Monk - I think it would be a big mistake to try to assess his time just by the results.
"Some of the performances have been impressive, especially the two games against Napoli in the Europa League.
"I know it's going to be a really tough game for us on Saturday."

Swans head coach Garry Monk: "There have been two 45-minute periods where we have underperformed. Apart from that, their attitude has been spot on. 
"If you have a group who doesn't want to improve and put the work in then you have a problem. But this group is not like that. 
 "For me, the good thing is that it's in our own hands." 

No Swansea player has scored in the five Barclays Premier League meetings with Everton, with their only goal being a Bryan Oviedo own goal

35% of Everton's goals have come in the final 15 minutes of matches this season, the highest proportion in the league this season

Everton have lost just one of their last 23 Premier League games at Goodison Park (W17 D5 L1

It is 11 Premier League games since the Swans kept a clean sheet away from home
