Everton fullback Baines: We can be pleased with Swansea draw

Sam Allardyce

While many of Swansea's fans would have hoped for much more from their visit to troubled West Brom last weekend, a draw was not necessarily a bad result. Swansea, in better form, at home and with more to play for are favourites at [2.58].

But a better case can be made for this being a low-scoring game. That was Jordan Ayew, who is 5/1 for first goalscorer honours. "But we would still like to have performed better". Tammy Abraham (5 goals) scored their goal last week and is the 9/2 favourite.

Wayne Rooney may have been directly involved in 9 goals from his last 8 appearances (4 goals, 5 assists) against the Swans, however, Tosun is Everton's main weapon.

Everton will also come into the game in a confident mood after holding Liverpool to a goalless draw at Goodison Park last weekend and they could have even went on to win the game. Remarkably he averages less than two yellows a game over his 27 matches this season though interestingly, his red card has come out five times, which is quite a lot. This trait is something teams like Southampton and Stoke can only dream of.

"We did not play enough stuff to keep them off which invited a bit of pressure and they got a goal they might feel they deserved".

"Let's all do our part: the players, the staff, the manager and of course the fans, who can play also and expect they will play".

Despite the protests of their fans regarding Allardyce's perceived failure on Merseyside, Everton have been slowly improving lately.

On Saturday afternoon in the Premier League, Swansea Cityhost Everton at the Liberty Stadium looking to keep up their good home form under Carlos Carvalhal in order to try and move further clear of the relegation places.
