Jordan Ayew returns from a three-match suspension for Swansea City as they host Everton

Jordan Ayew boosted Swansea's fight for English Premier League survival by grabbing a 1-1 draw against Everton on Saturday.

Gylfi Sigurdsson continues to miss out through injury. A poor season had left many supporters fearful of his inclusion in the team, however, he proved himself one of the Toffees best players. Now they need to finish strong to keep it that way, which next brings Everton to Liberty Stadium on Saturday, April 14.

"Just look at the Roma and Juventus games", said Carvalhal.

When you look at how the teams are set up and the absence of any great attacking talent between them, particularly for Swansea, you start to believe that this could be a pretty uneventful game.

"It was one of our best performances of the season, but in football you can't get everything". An uneventful first half should have seen Swansea enter the interval ahead but for André Ayew to have wasted a glorious chance for them to take an early lead.

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. All of Everton's last three goals on the road were scored by him and it's hard to argue he isn't their most likely scorer. He's joint-favourite at 9/2.

Swansea have already made huge strides under the former Sheffield Wednesday boss, having been bottom of the table and five points adrift of safety when he was appointed in December.

The Ghanaian, back in action after serving a three-game ban following his sending off at Huddersfield in March, struck a superb equaliser to move the Swans five points clear of the drop zone.
