Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Everton made a very slow start to the season, but the Toffees have been raising their form week by week and, as a result, they sit in the top half of the Premier League table ahead of Matchday 18. The Goodison Park outfit did well to hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby at the weekend and, to make things even better for the fans, they defeated Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Wednesday evening. New coach Sam Allardyce undisputedly helped the team regain a much-needed confidence and we predict they will give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend as they play host to struggling Swansea City at their Goodison Park. The Swans experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Manchester City and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the Welsh club.
Highlighted Player (Gylfi Sigurdsson):
Arguably one of Iceland’s most famous footballers ever, Gylfi Sigurdsson was born In Reykjavik on 9 September 1989, but he never played for an Icelandic club on senior level. Having shown a great deal of potential while playing for FH and Breidablik youth teams, the attacking midfielder was snatched by Reading in 2008 and he has since spent the majority of his career in England. Sigurdsson also went on to represent Hoffenheim and Tottenham Hotspur, but he played his best football during the two spells with Swansea City, scoring 25 goals in first 85 Premier League games for the Swans. Sigurdsson became famous for his dangerous free-kicks and killer passes in the final third, but he was never given a genuine opportunity to prove his worth while at Tottenham Hotspur. The highly rated footballer had a key role to play as Iceland secured their first ever appearance at a major tournament finals, scoring 6 goals in 10 Euro 2016 qualifiers to ensure he would remain in the history books for years to come.
Highlighted Team (Swansea City):
Swansea City AFC is a Welsh football club from Swansea and is currently playing in the English Premier League. The biggest rival Swansea City is Cardiff City which is next to Swansea City the only football club from Wales that played in the PremierLeague.

The fans of Swansea City prefer to use the non-commercial name: White Rock Stadium.
