Three games before the end of the English Premier League things are not looking good for the Swansea. In today's game against Everton, the Welsh team needs to put down a win and grab 3 points to continue their relegation battle with Hull City.
Currently, Swansea is in the 18th place with 32 points, two less than Hull who is above the relegation line. Liberty Stadium is the place where the home team needs to win games like this in order to preserve their Premiership status.
Everton, on the other hand, is safe in the 7th position and they are going to participate in the Europa League next season. But for sure they are not going to allow to endanger their reputation by giving up this game easily.

After six games without a win, 5 of them defeats, Swansea managed to grab 4 points in the past 2 encounters. In the last match, they surprised everybody with snapping a point at Old Trafford against Manchester United. In this season they are not very good at home as they collected only 21 points from possible 51.
But in the latest 5 games, they recorded 3 wins and one draw and loss a piece. This is something encouraging for the Swans, and they hope to continue with this pace in this game also.
Everton News And Form
Everton is playing without any pressure these past few games. This, however, does not justify the fact that they didn't score in the last 180 minutes. Toffees are going to have a lot of problems because they are not very good when playing away from their Goodison Park. Since the beginning of 2017, they haven't won on the road, and this is something very frustrating for the fans. This game comes after Ronald Koeman's statement that he would like to go to Barcelona one day and that made many supporters of Everton very uncomfortable because they are afraid that their team could lose their manager after just one year in charge.
In last five encounters between these two teams we saw 4 matches without a winner, Swansea managed to put down one victory, while Everton didn't win once.
In the first meeting, this season played at Goodison Park, Swansea was leading after the first half-time, but eventually, Everton managed to equalize one minute before the end of the match.
