Everton continued a solid start to the season with a 3-0 away win against a good Swansea side in a game that had countless chances and could just as easily have ended up 7-4. Blues manager David Moyes has clearly found the answer to playing against the Swansea style as Everton maintained their 100% record against the Welsh side since they got promoted.
Our forum users were confident going into the game, with the team news being Tony Hibbert joining Gibson and Jelavic on the sidelines prompting hopes of a Neville-less midfield.
ToffeeBlue: Looks like Jelavic is out, Hibbo is struggling and Gibson remains out while Oveido comes into the squad for the 1st time, so we will have to have a reshuffle. Swans 1 Everton 3
EvertonMike: Hibbert out could prove a blessing for our midfield, but wouldn't put it passed Moyes to bring Heitinga into CM. We should be beating these, but without Gibson and Jelavic it will be a lot harder. Shame we didn't retain Rodwell and Stracq to come in but it is what it is. Hope Anichebe plays well, his goal scoring form has actually been pretty good last year or so and he'll get a lot of chances this year.
Rob-EFC: Not going to lie, I don't mind Hibbo, but when I heard he is a big doubt, as you said, i is a blessing in disguise because it will force Neville into right back. Although, if there were any other option would rather keep Fellaini up top because his defensive ability will be needed against Swansea who will like to pass it around the back 4, did that really effectively last time out with Cahill and Jelavic chasing and harassing the defenders into mistakes.
Everton won the game thanks to goals from Anichebe, Mirallas and Fellaini, and our forum users were pleased with the result and performance.
Everton_77: Finally scored a third, we really could have won 6-0 today
EvertonMike: That game was mental at times, how it ended up only 3-0... So many clear chances at both ends
ToffeeBlue: Absolutely superb away performance from Everton, could and should have been 5 or 6.
Everton_77: In reality, with better finishing 8-2 would have been a probable score line
EvertonMike: Agreed they missed a few sitters too, neither team seemed interested in defending. Excellent game of football.
