Everton v Swansea: The story of the match

Everton defender Seamus Coleman snatched an 89th-minute equaliser to crush Swansea's hopes of a first league win since the opening day of the season.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty was cancelled out after a late defensive lapse from Jordi Amat in the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

As a result new manager Bob Bradley became the first Swans manager in the Premier League to fail to win in his first five games, having taken just two points since assuming control.

Swansea also dropped to the bottom of the Premier League standings after Sunderland's victory over Hull.

Tweet of the Match: "Boos ring out at half time' at Goodison Park for #EFC" - @LivEchoEFC described how the home fans were not happy after going behind to Swansea.

Star Man

Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Iceland international is the man who makes Swansea tick and his quality is evident playing either as an attacking midfielder or, on this occasion, as a false nine. He is also a threat from set-pieces.


Goalscorer Sigurdsson has scored or assisted 37 of Swansea's 99 Premier League goals since he has been at the club.


Striker Romelu Lukaku, with seven goals in previous nine league outings, missing an open goal from three yards.
