Everton v Swansea City

Team News (new)

Royston Drenthe made an impressive return from injury in the 1-1 draw with Norwich on Saturday after missing three matches with a foot injury. The Dutchman played a big part in Leon Osman's equaliser and is pushing for a start on Wednesday.

Seamus Coleman missed the stalemate with the Canaries with a thigh injury, whilst Jack Rodwell picked up a hamstring injury in the warm up.

Swansea have a clean bill of health ahead of their first trip to Merseyside in 28 years.

Form (new)

Everton are without a win in three Premier League games but Osman's leveller on Saturday ended their 272 minute wait for a goal.

Only Fulham, Liverpool and the Premier League's top three have conceded fewer goals than the Blues this term.

Swansea kept their second away clean sheet of the season on Saturday when they drew 0-0 with faltering Newcastle at St James's Park.

But the Swans are without a victory in eight away games this term and have conceded 19 goals in the process.

Match Stats (new)

1. Everton have not lost any of their 13 meetings with the Welsh club, winning nine and drawing four.

2. The Club's leading post-war goalscorer Graeme Sharp scored his first goal at Goodison Park against Swansea.

3. The Blues have now fallen behind in 14 of their 18 matches in all competitions this season.

4. Nine of Everton's 16 Premier League goals have come in the final 15 minutes of games.

What They Say

NEIL TAYLOR (Swansea defender): "Going to Newcastle was always going to be a tough game, but we got a point and we move on to the next game now. Everton are an established Premier League team and we will have to show the same defensive capabilities as we did at Newcastle if we are to get anything."

Last Meeting (new)

EVERTON 2-2 SWANSEA (February 26 1983): Everton's last top flight encounter with Swansea came in 1983 when a brace from Andy King helped the Blues to a point at Goodison Park. The Swans were relegated from the old First Division that season.

Classic Match (new)

EVERTON 5-1 SWANSEA (September 6 1930): Having been relegated from the First Division in the previous season, the Blues were looking to bounce back at the first attempt. They started the season with five successive wins including a 5-1 rout of Swansea where the legendary Dixie Dean netted a brace.
