Allardyce hails 'battling' Everton draw at Swansea

Allardyce hails 'battling' Everton draw at Swansea

'But we would still like to have performed better'.

Everton have already made themselves comfortable with Premier League football now assured for next season.

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.

The swans will be without Fer and Wilfried Bony, who are ruled out to the end of the season with injuries. That was Jordan Ayew, who is 5/1 for first goalscorer honours.

But Ayew saved the day in his first game back after a three match ban to ensure Swansea remain unbeaten when he has hit the back of the net.




Swansea are four points above the relegation zone and have won their last four games in front of their own fans.

Wayne Rooney may have been directly involved in 9 goals from his last 8 appearances (4 goals, 5 assists) against the Swans, however, Tosun is Everton's main weapon. With most of the teams stuck near the foot of the table failing to pick up wins, a point meant Swansea slowly inch their way further towards safety. This trait is something teams like Southampton and Stoke can only dream of.

"The way for us is to play our best level and that can make a big impact with the fans at the Liberty".

And Carvalhal will be looking forward to another sensational display from his talismanic striker when they test runaway league leaders Manchester City for might in their next league outing.

Big Sam will be reasonably happy with a 0-0 draw against Liverpool though some may argue that with some Reds players rested and minds on that Champions League game against Man City, that was as good a chance as any for Everton to have actually won the game.
