Moyes: Everton Must Disrupt Swansea's Passing Game

Moyes: Everton Must Disrupt Swansea's Passing Game

Everton boss David Moyes says they must stop Swansea City's 'rhythm and play' on Saturday if they want to get a result at the Liberty Stadium.

Moyes says he is a big admirer of Swansea City, their style of play and manager Brendan Rodgers for their top flight success this year.

The Swans are two places above Everton in 8th, and just a place below their arch rivals Liverpool.

Moyes said:

'I think Swansea's style is probably further on in their style. They're real purists in what they want to try and do, and it's great the style they're going to play.

'I've admired what they've done. I'm looking forward to it; it'll be a tough game. You need to make sure we try and stop their rhythm and their play, because if you don't then they get into it and they're good [at it].

'You can see they're making 500 and 600 passes in every game they play. They're out-passing Manchester United or Arsenal in games, so you have to be aware that there'll be lots of times in the game where you don't have the ball because of how well they do it.'

'I think they've had good results all year, whether they've been at home or away,'

'I think that Swansea have had the style and play before [with] Roberto Martinez and then it was Paulo Sosa, and now Brendan, so they've built on what they're doing for a few years and it's taken them time.

'They've had some good stuff and some bad stuff so I think that they're doing, they've done very well.'
