Everton travel to Swansea City on Saturday afternoon looking to bounce back from the disappointing defeat to Chelsea.

The Blues were far from at their best against the champions elect, with Thibaut Courtois rarely challenged throughout.

They face a different kind of test against the Swans, who will be determined to secure all three points for themselves in their bid to fight off relegation.

Here are ten key stats ahead of this weekend’s fixture.

Teams

  • Everton have travelled away to Swansea five times in the Premier League and are yet to taste defeat. Their record stands at three wins and two draws.
  • Don’t expect a lot of goals, there’s only been ten in those five visits so far. Luckily eight have gone to Everton.
  • If the Blues do manage to score, however, it will be their 61st of the season in total. That equals their best from 2012/13 and joint most since scoring 64 in 1995/96.
  • They will be desperate to win too. Failure to do so will make it seven consecutive away games without success, the worst since a ten-game run in 2013.
  • Unfortunately, Everton’s form in Saturday away games isn’t all that great. We’ve managed just one win in the last nine, which was the late success over Crystal Palace in January.

Players

  • Joel Robles has only faced Swansea twice in his career but conceded four goals in those games. Maarten Stekelenburg has conceded six in four.
  • Conversely, Lukasz Fabianski has conceded five goals in eight against the Toffees but is yet to taste defeat to them.
  • Everton certainly can’t rely on Kevin Mirallas to score against the Swans, he’s managed just one in eight against them so far.
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson is rumoured to be a target for the Blues this summer. He’s got four goals in ten games against them in his career but has never registered an assist.
  • Romelu Lukaku is currently two games without a goal. If he does score it will take him level with Alex Young in the all-time scoring charts.
