Everton v Swansea- Goodison Park at 13:30 live on Sky Sports 1
Swansea’s new head coach, Italian Francesco Guidolin takes charge of his first game in charge this Sunday lunchtime as the Swans travel to Merseyside to face Everton at Goodison Park.
The 60 year old has been taken employed on a short-term contract so presumably until the end of the season. He replaces Alan Curtis, care-taker manager after Garry Monk left the Welsh side.
Alan Curtis’ last game in charge was on Monday night against Watford, which the Swans won 1-0 and pulled them out of the bottom three. For Guidolin’s first match in charge, it could have been easier but could have been a lot worse also as he prepares to face 10th place Everton who haven’t won a league match in their last 4 outings.
Everton have managed just one win in nine and haven’t won in their last 4 at Goodison Park, drawing 2, losing 2. They have accumulated more points on the road than they have at home, averaging just 1.18 points per game on home soil, well below the 1.49 league average.
They also have the league’s worst defence on home soil conceding in 91% of their matches and an average of 1.82 per game, well above the league average of 1.17.
Although Swansea are not scoring freely by any means this season, they have scored in each of their last 3 games. Guidolin could well look at Everton’s weak rear-guard and Gomis and Montero to the attack. Although Gomis has been linked with a move away from South Wales, he’s still a Swansea player and could be vital in picking up some points on Sunday.
Everton go into the match as favourites at 1.73,far too short in my opinion when looking at their recent and home form.
I expect their to be goals with both sides lacking in the defensive departments and Over 2.5 goals at 2.02 offers some value. For my recommendation however, I’m with the Swans on the Asian Handicap betting market +0.75 at the same price.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Swansea +0.75 at 2.02
Prices correct at time of writing.
