Crystal Palace head into the tie in pretty awful form.

The Eagles are winless in their last five Premier League outings, and are in serious danger of slipping into the relegation zone.

Crystal Palace will kick-off at Goodison Park 14th in the PL, just six points clear of the bottom three.

As for Everton, their form has improved a fair bit since Carlo Ancelotti took the reins earlier this season.

The Toffees are up to 9th in the English top-flight, and just three points adrift of 6th placed Sheffield United.

Roy Hodgson set to sign contract extension with Palace?

Ahead of their clash with Everton, Crystal Palace fans look to have been handed some positive news.

Roy Hodgson has been Palace’s boss since 2017, and the former England manager has had a pretty successful spell with the club.

Despite fairly limited funds, Hodgson has managed to guide Palace to 11th and 12th place finishes in the last two seasons.

However, Hodgson’s current contract is due to run out at the end of the current campaign.

But on Thursday, the Evening Standard are reporting that Palace believe they have convinced Hodgson to agree a one-year contract extension.

The Standard claims that Hodgson has been frustrated by Palace’s last two transfer windows. But Steve Parish, Crystal Palace’s chairman, is said to have told Hodgson that the club are committed to investing in his squad this summer.
