Kick Off: 3PM Saturday 12th January 2013
Just what is the secret to the David Moyes magic? With minimal fuss and fanfare and not to mention a paltry transfer budget Everton keep punching thier weight season after season.
The last gasp winner at Newcastle comes on top of a superb run of form marred only by the home defeat to Chelsea and completes a sequence of four 2-1 scorelines.
Everton are just one place off the Champions League places and if they could qualify for the competition it would be a magnificent achievement for Moyes. Gibson is a big loss to injury as is Hibbert but the results keep coming for the bluenoses.
Swansea lie in 9th with three draws from thier last four games the best of which was to hold off Man United with a 1-1 draw at home. Swansea have the least amount of players on the treatment table with only Naylor receiving attention for an ankle injury.
Both teams are in good form so you would expect goals in this game and I'm going for +2.5 goals in the betting market.
