Rangel Fires Warning

@Everton

Swansea right-back Angel Rangel has warned Everton that they will be facing two of the most in-form strikers in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Swans travel to Merseyside fresh from their 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg where Michu and Danny Graham were both on target.

Spanish forward Michu has grabbed the headlines this season, hitting 16 goals since his summer switch from Rayo Vallecano.

But Rangel says that Graham’s recent contributions must also not be forgotten after the former Watford striker scored in each of his last four matches.

"We pounced on two mistakes, but you still have to score them and I think Michu and Danny took them so well," Rangel said after the smash-and-grab at Stamford Bridge. “They are quality strikers and that has made the difference.

"It's very important when you go to a place like Chelsea, where you defend and defend all game against a top team, that you take your chances.

"But it's not a surprise anymore, Michu's scoring in almost every game now. Last weekend he came on and scored straight away, and on Wednesday he waited for his chance and he took it. And Danny's been on fire in the last few games.

"We knew that we wouldn't get many chances, but that's the difference between top quality strikers and good strikers."

Meanwhile, reports in South Wales are suggesting that Michel Vorm will replace Gerhard Tremel in goal and that powerhouse midfielder Kemy Agustien will start in midfield to combat the threat of Marouane Fellaini.

It is also rumoured that Swans boss Michael Laudrup could consider playing his two right-backs - Angel and Dwight Tiendalli – in front of each other to add extra protection against Leighton Baines and Steven Pienaar.
