Swansea and Everton are ranked bottom and second bottom for shots on goal this season and with the two boasting few in-form attackers between them, it could pay to bet on it being a very low-scoring game, says Jamie Pacheco. "But we would still like to have performed better".

Everton were toothless in attack, with Yannick Bolasie one of their biggest culprits as his influence quickly faded out of the game.

Carvalhal issued a rallying cry to supporters ahead of Saturday's visit of Everton, a game he has described as an important moment in their season.

Jordan Ayew returned to rescue a vital point for Swansea after they looked to have become Lady Luck's latest victim.

The Toffees will be without Sigurdsson due to a knee injury with Sam Allardyce revealing that he is not sure if the Icelandic midfielder will return to action before the end of the season.


Swansea had scored only once in the three games top-scorer Ayew had sat out following his red card at Huddersfield last month.

An example of that was their 1-1 draw at West Brom.

The aforementioned Wayne Rooney is 6/1 and has a good record against Swansea - four goals in his last nine appearances against the Swans - but that's no value if he carries on playing as deep as he has done recently.

While they played football far from the slick, fluid style all fans crave, they dug deep to battle back into the game despite not being at their best. They were completely out of form, were stumbling through even the most routine plays and matches and seemed destined for relegation. While more players are likely to arrive at Goodison Park this summer, they are also a team who drastically need to trim their wage bill.

Ayew's 11th goal of the season secured a 1-1 draw against Everton, the least Swansea deserved after outplaying Sam Allardyce's side for long periods at the Liberty Stadium.
