Swansea City vs. Everton: Preview and TV schedule

Paul Thomas

Everton will look to continue their impressive unbeaten run away at an inconsistent Swansea on Sunday.

Everton have started life under Roberto Martínez exceptionally well, and are currently up in fifth place in the Premier League. They've only lost once all season, and are favourites for their clash with Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday. Only Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United have a better away record than the Toffees.

In contrast, Swansea have been highly inconsistent this season, and are currently down in tenth place. They've only lost twice in their last nine matches, though they've picked up too many draws to push on up the table. Making things harder is their not inconsiderable injury list.

This weekend the Swans will be without Nathan Dyer, Leon Britton and Álvaro Vázquez among others, while Chico Flores is in doubt with a knee problem. Everton too have a few first teamers out, including Gerard Deulofeu and Leighton Baines, though the latter should return for Boxing Day.

Swansea City injuries and suspensions

Out: Gary Monk (knee), Álvaro Vázquez (groin), Nathan Dyer (ankle), Leon Britton (ankle), Àngel Rangel (suspended). In doubt: Chico Flores (knee).

Everton injuries and suspensions

Out: Gerard Deulofeu (hamstring), Tony Hibbert (knee), Arouna Koné (knee), Darron Gibson (knee), Leighton Baines (toe). In doubt: None.
