Crystal Palace vs Everton betting tips: Premier League preview & prediction

Crystal Palace vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: Palace 1-1 Everton

The Premier League season has finally returned and both Everton and Crystal Palace will be looking to start the campaign right.

After a positive campaign for Palace, Roy Hodgson will be looking to replicate their form from last season and build upon it.

Though, they will have to do so without talented youngster, Aaron Wan-Bissaka who joined Manchester United over the summer.

Wilfried Zaha was heavily linked with a move and even reportedly handed in a transfer request. In the latter days of the window, Everton were linked but the Ivory Coast attacker remains at Selhurst Park.

The Toffees have made a splash in the transfer market this summer.

Marco Silva and director of footballer Marcel Brands have secured the signings of Djibril Sidibé, Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph, Jonas Lossl, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Moise Kean so far.

Alex Iwobi joined on deadline day and there is real hope that their spending spree could see them threaten the top six status quo this season.

Crystal Palace vs Everton: Who will win?

With Everton having spent so much this summer, it will come as little surprise who the favourite for this game is.

The Toffees go into the game at odds of 11/8 to get their Premier League campaign off to a winning start.

Though, it’s not as clear cut as you would expect.

Crystal Palace can be found at odds of 2/1, which isn’t too bad considering the summer they have endured.

With Everton’s away form being less than ideal in recent seasons, it’s hard to imagine they’ll hit the ground running, especially with big-name signings Kean and Gbamin unlikely to feature.

As a result, we’re predicting a draw which can be found at 9/4.

If you want to go one step further, we fancy a 1-1 draw, priced at 11/2.

In terms of goalscorers, it will come as little surprise who is favourite to score first.

Everton talisman Richarlison, as he did many times last season, tops the list to score first at odds of 11/2.

Toffees new boy Moise Kean follows at odds of 6/1, though we think it’s unlikely he will start or even feature at all.

Palace’s favourite to score first is Christian Benteke at 7/1, while talisman Zaha, should he remain at the Eagles, is priced at 8/1.

With Richarlison starting the season brilliantly in his last two campaigns, we back the Brazilian to score first.

Crystal Palace’s last campaign was a resounding success with all things considered.

The Eagles finished the season with their highest Premier League points total from a 38-game campaign, securing 12th spot.

Though, much of that was down to two players in particular.

First, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The youngster was simply brilliant during his first full campaign, both defensively and going forward from full-back.

Unfortunately for Palace, his brilliant performances came at a price.

Manchester United moved quickly to snap up the youngster over the summer, signing him for a fee in the region of £55million.

While that no doubt hurt Palace fans, Wan-Bissaka’s departure wouldn’t be the be-all and end-all of Crystal Palace.

The other key man was Wilfried Zaha. The Ivory Coast star remains at the club but is hugely unlikely to feature in this one after playing at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Eagles talisman was crucial to Palace’s success last season, scoring 10 and assisting 10 in the Premier League.

Will the top six come unstuck at the hands of the Toffees?

Last season wasn’t the greatest of campaigns for Everton.

While the season had periods of brilliance, it also had some spells of embarrassment.

As a result, they finished eighth in the table.

Though, the Toffees are looking to put that behind them by spending a bucket load of cash this summer!

Everton have already made some brilliantly shrewd signings, including the likes of Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Moise Kean.

The former could prove to be a shrewd replacement for Idrissa Gueye who left for Paris Saint-Germain over the off-season.

In Kean, Everton also have someone who is finally capable of replacing Romelu Lukaku.

Since the Belgian’s departure, the Toffees have used Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin and while the latter is a pretty solid player, he’s not quite the quality Everton need to break the top six.

Meanwhile, Kean’s current ability plus enormous potential means he could finally solve Everton’s striking problem.

The Toffees have also signed Djibril Sidibé on loan, Fabian Delph, Andre Gomes permanently and Jonas Lossl.

With all those players in mind, Everton certainly look like they have an outside chance of a top-six finish.


Crystal Palace team news vs Everton

Having stayed at Crystal Palace, it’s unlikely that Zaha will feature from the start.

Having missed pretty much all of pre-season due to the African Cup of Nations, it’s unlikely he would be thrust back into the team straight away.

Cheikhou Kouyaté also featured heavily in the tournament and will likely miss the game.

Other than that, there doesn’t look to be any problems for Palace.

Everton team news vs Crystal Palace

Unfortunately for Everton, there’s some bad news.

Fabian Delph suffered an injury during Everton’s last pre-season game against Werder Bremen and looks likely to miss the clash with Palace.

In terms of Moise Kean and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, it’s unlikely we see much of either player.

Gbamin even admitted in a recent press conference that the Goodison Park clash with Watford is more likely for his debut.
