Crystal Palace vs Everton
Everton’s 2019/20 Premier League campaign begins away to Crystal Palace.
The Toffees came so close to earning Europa League football last season, missing out by just three points.
However, after the transfer window Everton have had, their fans will likely be hopeful of having a better league finish this time around.
Some of Everton’s notable signings were Moise Kean, Alex Iwobi and Andre Gomes.
