Everton v Swansea - Saturday 15:00
Everton were absolutely battered last week by Antonio Conte’s in-form Chelsea. Ronald Koeman sent his team out with a back three but the experiment backfired, and he was forced into a pragmatic change before the break. They’ll have no such worries here as they have the extra quality and should be the ones dictating the style of the game.
Swansea’s first couple of games under Bob Bradley showed some promise as they lost narrowly to Arsenal before achieving a draw against Watford. As per usual when a new man is in charge, they displayed plenty of fight if not quality, but they’ve since lost that battling spirit and successive limp, insipid performances have left them with just two points from their last 10 matches and sit only above Sunderland on goal difference.
Everton’s form has been stronger at home, where they remain unbeaten in eight top-flight outings (winning three of the last four), and they haven’t conceded more than a single goal in any of these games. The first half has been drawn in seven of the last 10 matches between these two sides, whilst Everton have only won the first half twice in their last 10 games and Swansea have been level at half-time in seven of their last 12. As a result, we think the value lies in backing draw/Everton in the half-time/full-time market at 5.0.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
