Man of the Match: Victor Anichebe
The Nigerian was awesome today, producing a powerful, unselfish performance to provide the focal point to all of the Toffees' attacks.
On this form, he can threaten to displace Nikica Jelavic from the starting line-up.
In truth though, the finishing needs to be worked on, as Anichebe could, and probably should have had a hat-trick today. Nonetheless it was a 9/10 performance that will have delighted David Moyes.
Full time thoughts:
Everton were excellent, from start to finish, pressing Swansea high up the pitch and attacking with a direct style.
The defence is solid and the front three look a real threat, despite Jelavic's injury. Mirallas looks to be a real good signing and Pienaar is as good as before. The fact that Anichebe appears to look like Didier Drogba on this form is another bonus.
Laudrup will be disappointed with that, the midfield looks lightweight and overrun at times. Food for thought for the Dane, who will have to devise a plan to arrest the slide, back-to-back defeats for the Swans now.
Anichebe has been excellent. Always willing to use his pace and power by taking on his man. He's caused problems all game— Marc Braterman (@marcbraterman) September 22, 2012
FT Swansea 0-3 Everton
90'— What an effort from De Guzman, a wonderful free-kick from 25 yards, dipping over the wall and onto the cross bar, Shechter's rebound is blocked superbly by Jagielka.
89'— The match has fizzled out now, Swansea know they're beaten and Everton just want to secure a clean sheet. Terrific display from the Toffees.
85'— Everton Substitution
Pienaar departs and it's an Everton debut for Bryan Oviedo, recently signed from FC Kopenhagen. Fellaini also comes off, a decent performance from the Belgian, replaced by Magaye Gueye.
81'— Everton Goal!!!
Fully deserved, Everton finish the match in style and the score does not flatter them at all. Baines whips in a lovely free-kick from the left and Fellaini redirects it into the top left corner. Small deflection off Ashley Williams, but it'll be the Belgian's goal.
81'— Everton Goal!!!
78'— Everton Chance
This is getting ridiculously. Anichebe forces Vorm into a fine save, blasting a volley low into the bottom left corner from the left side of the penalty area. Then Coleman swings in a cross, which falls to Anichebe again, but this time Anichebe shoots narrowly wide, again on a volley.
76'— Everton Chance
Baines scampers forward, avoiding several Swansea tackles, before a perfect cross to find Anichebe, who misses from six yard. Everton could have had five or six today, seriously!
72'— Everton Chance
Fellaini rises hight, meeting a Baines corner, directing it powerfully past Vorm, but Britton is there, clearing off the line.
70'— Swansea Substitution
GRaham is withdrawn and the loanee from Kaiserslautern, Itay Shechter replaces him.
70'— Everton Substitution
Mirallas makes way, and he's been mightily impressive. Stephen Naismith is his replacement.
65'— Everton Chance
Wow, what a miss! Fellaini is completely unmarked eight yards from goal and Anichebe finds him superbly, but the Belgian somehow misses, with the goal at his mercy. Moyes is furious, perhaps knowing that this match is still alive when it shouldn't be.
63'— A quiet spell in the match, after the red card, with Everton controlling possession and Swansea holding in there for a while, until they decide whether to risk going for a draw.
Shots: Swansea 9 - 17 Everton
Shots on target: Swansea 5 - 9 Everton
53'— Red Card
Nathan Dyer is shown his marching orders for a second yellow card, it's a little harsh, but it's very clumsy. Laudrup looks absolutely disgusted.
54'— Swansea Substitution
Tate is off and Leon Britton enters the game, a positive change from Michael Laudrup.
53'— Swansea Chance
Ki works some space on the edge of the area, drilling a shot low to Howard's right, but the USA international miraculously dives low, tipping the ball over the bar. Amazing save.
51'— Everton Chance
Somehow it's still 2-0. The Toffees send Fellaini through on goal, but the Belgian is not quick enough to take the chance himself, setting up Mirallas instead. The Belgian crashes a shot on to the bar, before Anichebe blasts a the rebound straight at Vorm.
This Everton - Swansea game is top class. The defending, odious, but the entertainment, spot on.— Richard Montague (@FRfootballRich) September 22, 2012
48'— Swansea Chance
Michu is in for the Swans, but the Spaniard shoots straight at Howard. Really should do better there.
Nathan Dyer replaces Pablo Hernandez at half-time.
