They’re by no means safe at this point, but considering where they were when we played them at Goodison earlier this season, they’ve done ok.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce: “The players can’t become complacent. Your levels can’t drop against Swansea. You’re meeting a team facing the drop and the crowd will come to get behind them.
