Everton FC: 5 Talking Points to Emerge from the Win over Swansea

Everton did their best to provide some festive cheer for their loyal followers with a professional 1-0 win over Swansea City. Leon Osman’s well-directed header separated the sides in a contest that the home side dominated for long periods.

Marouane Fellaini, Leon Osman and Royston Drenthe stood out for the Toffees, who took the lead in a game for only the second time at home this season. For Swansea, despite their neat, attractive style of football, they failed to concoct sufficient openings to warrant sharing the spoils. 

David Moyes made two changes to the starting lineup that drew 1-1 against Norwich on Saturday. Drenthe and Seamus Coleman returned to the action in place of Magaye Gueye and an alarmingly out-of-form and goal-shy Tim Cahill. 

Here are five talking points to emerge from the victory at Goodison Park tonight.
