Swansea boss Michael Laudrup will be hoping for the same performance his Swansea side gave at at Chelsea in midweek. The Swans took a 2-0 win from Stamford Bridge but face an Everton side that have never lost to Swansea in any competition.

Everton have only lost one out of their last nine Premier league matches in recent weeks, a run that has propelled them to 5th place, whilst Swansea are unbeaten in their last five Premier league games, drawing four of them. 

In the last game between these two sides it took Nathan Dyer just 13 minutes to be sent off for two separate bookings, having come on as a half-time substitute.
