Preview

Swansea City are coming off their first defeat of the season heading into this match afteran underwhelming performace at Villa Park where they failed to take their chances on Saturday afternoon whereas Everton are coming off an 2-2 home draw in a match where they were hard done by on referee decisions but played fairly well regardless of the end result, dominant for the majority of the match.

Today is the day I grant a nsno.co.uk poster's dream wish, that poster is riddick who posted the following in the Newcastle match thread:

i'd love to know the record when osman, neville and hibbert all start the game.

Below is a table showing how Everton have performed when all three have started a match together:



Swansea City

At the start of the season there were many 'expert' pundits among regular premier league watchers who had tipped Swansea City for relegation in a case of second season syndrome after losing manager Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool added with selling Joe Allen to the same club however they have had a positive start under Michael Laudrup picking up 7 points from 12 including a 5-0 master-class at QPR on the opening day of the season.

Laudrup didn't have any worries changing the squad in his first season over the summer as he bought seven players for a total of approximately 16m with outgoings of at least 21m including prominent players from last year such Joe Allen and Scott Sinclair. The player who has stood out most for Swansea thus far is Michu who Everton will have to watch out for if they're planning on keeping a clean sheet as the Spaniard has scored 4 goals in 4 matches at the start of his Swansea career.

Swansea will be without new signing centre-back Chico who is suspended, Bartley who is a new signing from Arsenal injured until December and Neil Taylor who has suffered a long term injury early in the season for Saturdays match. Gary Monk is also an slight doubt for the match.

Everton

Meanwhile, Everton will be staring at 3 matches without victory should they not gain three points from this which may add more and more pressure on the players' shoulders however performances so far have been impressive with the exception of West Brom away so there are plenty of positives to take into the match against Swansea.

Many Evertonians will have gone away from the Newcastle match with a bitter taste in their mouths and a sense of defeat following an heartbreaking Demba Ba goal which cancelled out what had seemed like a late winner from Victor Anichebe. This alone would have been bad enough regardless of two legitimate goals being chalked off for Everton at 1-1. There is however plenty of hope that this feeling of being cheated will spur David Moyes' side on going into the game.

There are only two injuries worries for Everton. The first being Darron Gibson who went off the pitch during the West Brom defeat who is scheduled to be out until mid-October and the other is Nikica Jelavic who picked up an injury and was substituted before half time during the Newcastle game though no time scale on his injury yet.



As Swansea haven't been a fixed feature amongst the elite in history, you may not be surprised to know that this is only the 16th competitive meeting between the two sides.



Swansea have never beaten Everton, is that something that fills you with confidence or worry?

Hope to see Heitinga back and at centre back

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!! Neville should not ever be played in midfield again, he is worse than terrible!!!!!!!


                 Howard

Hibbert  Jagielka(or)Heitinga Distin Baines

           Fellaini  Osman

Mirallas      Naismith    Pienaar

                 Anichebe

For me Fellaini has to play in midfield until Gibson is back, although we all now Neville will be in there.

Would like to see Neville and Coleman reunited down the right hand side. Hibbert dosen't work when we take the game to people he's a last ditch defender suited for when we play the top four. Jagileka and Distin to be given one more game to sort themselves out before Johnny is brought in. Mirralas in the free role behind Victor.


                                            Howard

Neville                  Jagielka                   Distin                 Baines



Coleman               Fellaini                    Osman                Pienaar


                            Mirralas       

                                                 Anichebe

Naismith 

Anichebe

Going to presume Jelavic is out.  Wouldn't be distraught if Jags stays in but as a unit the central defence needs to start performing (as does Howard).  Heitinga might help that although dropping Fellaini back might be enough to do that anyway.  Mirallas, Naismith and Anichebe are all interchangeable which I like the idea of.

Felli's dominant display when he came on behind the front man last year will have to have a bearing on Moyes' thinking.

We need a presence up front that is reliable in terms of holding the ball up in order to bring our midfielders into play.

Out for a win, keep up the momentum.

Swansea don't have a great defence, so I expect we can get at them and win.

Important game this.. Win here and the wheels to a good season start are rolling again. Draw or loose and it's starting to look more and more average. I want us to flex are muscles and make sure we pick up 6pts from this and Southampton.
