sbobet ninja Everton boss Sam Allardyce was trying to put a positive spin on another poor away day return. He singled out Wayne Rooney for particular praise claiming he had been influential in the Blues midfield.

Yet the truth is the Toffees were second best for most of the match and on the first half performance alone could and should have been several goals down. If it hadn’t been for another excellent display from Jordan Pickford they would have been.

Despite the fact that it was important for the Blues to start with a good tempo and try to impose themselves on Swansea, it was the home team who did that with Everton pinned back and defending for long periods once again.

As it was the away team went ahead thanks to an own-goal from Swans defender Kyle Naughton. It wasn’t a lead the Blues deserved. And it didn’t kick start a more enterprising and determined effort either as Swansea continued to have much the better of the match.

Almost inevitably given the amount of possession and pressure Swansea enjoyed and Everton’s defensive frailties, they did eventually find an equaliser. sbobet ninja

So another two dropped points from a game that Everton really should have won. This was a game that once again highlighted all of the Blues failings, especially away from home.

Yes Swansea are fighting for their Premier League survival and so you would expect them to come out of the blocks quickly but knowing this the Blues should have the right mind-set to respond effectively.

It doesn’t seem to ever sink in with this manager that especially away from home you should be looking to take the game to your opponent and not simply try to come away with a point.

By conceding possession and initiative to Swansea, Everton allowed them to build momentum and dictate the pace and tempo of the game. And the Toffees simply don’t have a defence good enough to shut up shop for ninety minutes.

Although Seamus Coleman did hit the woodwork late on in truth the Blues never really looked like scoring. Performances of this kind again next season will condemn Everton to another season of mid-table mediocrity. sbobet ninja

Jack Wilshere 'hopeful' of agreeing Arsenal contract extension


sbobet asia Jack Wilshere is "hopeful" he will agree a contract extension to remain at Arsenal. The 26-year-old England international, who has been at the club since he was nine, is out of contract in the summer and has so far been unable to agree terms on a new deal. Wilshere says talks remain ongoing but admits the situation has been complicated by Arsene Wenger's departure at the end of the season. Wilshere told Soccer Saturday: "We are still in the same position really. Not much has changed. We are still talking.

"Obviously the boss has left which has changed things a little bit because I don't know who is going to be the manager next year and that can change things. "But we are still talking and I am hopeful and the club is hopeful we can get something done." Wilshere was rested for Arsenal's 2-1 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday, along with a number of other regular starters, but is expected to be in the starting line-up for Thursday's Europa League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid. Arsenal's run to the last four of the Europa League has meant a hectic schedule for the club's players and Wilshere says he has not had time to think about the prospect of moving away. sbobet asia

Wilshere explained: "To be honest with you, I haven't really thought about [moving somewhere else]. I have said before that this is where I want to be and I have not really had much time to think about moving clubs. "We have been playing every three or four days for the last three or four months so it has been difficult. "I am concentrating on games and obviously the boss left so it has been a bad couple of months to be honest." sbobet asia
