A late Seamus Coleman goal sealed a 2-1 win last time out, a result that pushed the club into sixth place in the table, three points ahead of Manchester United.
Roberto Martinez’s side are within two points of 5th place Spurs and with two games in hand over their London rivals will be confident of overtaking them.
The Spanish boss is set to give a late fitness test to Phil Jagielka (hamstring) although Steven Pienaar is definitely out, as too is Lacina Traore but Martinez revealed his hope that the on loan Monaco star will play before the end of the season.
Swansea are set to receive a welcome boost with forward Michu poised to make his first start in 3 months against the Toffee’s.
The Spanish International scored 18 goals last season to inspire the Swans but he has struggled with injuries this time round and has been out of action since mid-December with an ankle injury.
Michu came off the bench in the 2-1 loss to WBA last weekend but is now set to return to the starting line-up.
The defeat to West Brom stretched Swansea’s winless run to seven games in all competitions and leaves them four points off the relegation zone.
Despite their own poor form, Swans manager Garry Monk believes the club will maintain their Premier League status.
“The good thing for us is that it’s in our own hands, we’re not chasing to make up points. But we need to get those points as quickly as possible to make us safe” Monk said.
“I’m totally confident we’ll earn enough points to be okay, we’re talking about two 45-minute periods where we haven’t performed like we should have.
“The attitude has been spot on, they realise what’s at stake – and once you get questioned you tend to get a reaction. A lot of teams have to play each other, a lot will drop points and make points.”
In addition to having Michu on from the start, Monk is also poised to include Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring) and Nathan Dyer (foot) in his squad.
