Everton have recorded just their fifth away win of the season with a 2-0 victory at Swansea City.

Everton have recorded just their fifth away win of the season with a 2-0 victory at Swansea City.

The Toffees bounced back from their Merseyside derby loss to Liverpool by overpowering the previously in-form Swans who had won three on the trot prior.

Leighton Baines gave the visitors the lead just prior to the hour-mark with a brilliantly taken free-kick after he had been brought down by Ashley Williams on the edge of the area.

Swansea, as usual, were dominating possession but it fell to ill-effect when Everton went two ahead thanks to Nikica Jelavic’s second goal for the club which came in the 76th minute. The Croatian got free in the area to easily slot home substitute Marouane Fellaini’s low cross to allow his side to move up to ninth on the Premier League table.

The loss saw Swansea drop to tenth with Everton moving past them as they continue their late-season restoration after a couple of defeats at the hands of the Reds and Arsenal.

Swansea City: 0
Everton: 2 (Leighton Baines 59’, Nikica Jelavic 76’)

Liberty Stadium, Swansea – 20,509

Yellow cards: SWA - Joe Allen 45+1’
EVE - Darron Gibson 73’, Steven Pienaar 83’
