David Moyes admits he's been impressed by Swansea's performances this season.
The South Wales outfit are on the brink of reaching the Capital One Cup final, are ninth in the Premier League and are unbeaten in six games.
But they have never beaten Everton and lost 3-0 at home to the Blues in September. Nevertheless, Moyes insists previous meetings now count for nothing.
The Everton manager said: "I have been very impressed with Swansea since the start of the season. They got off to a great start.
"You take every game individually and it doesn't matter what has happened in the past, it doesn't count. You take every game on its own merit and it's a tough game against Swansea - they have had some really good results.
"It was a terrific result (beating Chelsea 2-0 in midweek) and they have got themselves in a position where they have a better than average chance of reaching the cup final."
As much as Swansea have impressed in the league this season, so have Everton. The Toffees are currently breathing menacingly down the necks of the sides in the Champions League places, creating a universal optimism around the Club.
"I wouldn't say we have exceeded my expectations," declared the ever-ambitious Moyes. "I expect a lot from the players and I expect them to win all the games they play in.
"We don't go into any game with an inferiority complex thinking that we can't win. I think the players are playing well and they have done since the start of the season and probably have done since last January. They have been in good form and in the main we have kept that going. They have been doing fine."
