However, Swansea, now with 33 points from as many games, are five points clear of third-bottom Southampton - with five games left of the 2017-18 English top-flight season.
They'll have to make do without three of their biggest names here. Now they need to finish strong to keep it that way, which next brings Everton to Liberty Stadium on Saturday, April 14. Renato Sanches, Wilfried Bony and Leroy Fer all miss out with injury although Swansea fans would probably argue no neof them has been particularly important to the team of late.
Jordan Ayew has claimed that Swansea City are showing what it takes to survive in the Premier League and are "moving slowly" in the right direction. Our home form is our mainstay, we've been brilliant there this season.
"Just look at the Roma and Juventus games", said Carvalhal.
When you look at how the teams are set up and the absence of any great attacking talent between them, particularly for Swansea, you start to believe that this could be a pretty uneventful game. "But we would still like to have performed better".
Swansea really share their goals around with no-one having scored more than six. Tammy Abraham scored his first goal since October to fix the damage but could not offer much more due to a succession of poor first touches of the ball.
Everton nearly snatched a victor when Seamus Coleman struck the crossbar 15 minutes from time, but it is now only one victory in eight games for the Toffees. That was Jordan Ayew, who is 5/1 for first goalscorer honours.
Wayne Rooney may have been directly involved in 9 goals from his last 8 appearances (4 goals, 5 assists) against the Swans, however, Tosun is Everton's main weapon. Although of course the odds are telling you that anyway.
The last time these two clubs clashed was earlier in the Premier League season.
