Sports Mole previews Saturday's Premier League clash between Everton and Swansea City at Goodison Park.

Swansea City will be looking for their second away win in the space of three days when they take on Everton at Goodison Park.

Michael Laudrup's men took a huge step towards securing a trip to Wembley by defeating Chelsea 2-0 in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final tie last night, but have won just one of their last six Premier League games.

The Dane is expected to recall Michael Vorm to his staring lineup, while Wayne Routledge and Ben Davies may be given a rest.

Meanwhile, the fifth-placed Toffees are without John Heitinga, Darron Gibson and Kevin Mirallas, who all miss out through injury.

Steven Pienaar and Thomas Hitzlsperger should return to action after being rested in the 5-1 victory over Cheltenham Town on Monday.

Leighton Baines was withdrawn early from that game with a slight ankle problem, so Bryan Oviedo will be on standby to deputise.

David Moyes's men triumphed in this fixture last season courtesy of a Leon Osman header.
