Crystal Palace FC vs Everton FC: Match preview

The Eagles have had a strong start to the season beating teams they were tipped to lose to.


First beating Southampton at Selhurst Park 1-0 on the opening day of the season. Then travelling to Old Trafford last weekend and coming home with all three points after a 1-3 win. The common denominator between both those teams was high-pressing.


PPDA, or Passes per Defensive Action, is the measure of the number of passes a team is able to complete in their own half per defensive action of the opposition. The Premier League average is between 9-10 PPDA, meaning for every 10 passes in a teams half of the pitch, there is one defensive action.


In Crystal Palace’s opening two games this season, their PPDA allowed has been 3.31 and 3.61. This is to say, they completed between 3-4 passes in their own half per defensive action of the opposition. Their allowed PPDA being just 1/3 of the Premier League’s average is indicated they weren’t playing the ball around much in their half and being very direct instead.


In contrast, against West Brom, Everton were allowed 41.5 PPDA; more than four times the league average. West Brom essentially surrendered that half of the pitch and defended their own half allowing Everton to have the ball at will outside their block.


This all suggests it could be the classic battle of possession vs counter attacks.


Palace have proven to be effective at preventing teams opening them up and nicking a goal on the counter so far this season.


However, unlike Everton sides of the past, this side now has a player to unpick the lock. James Rodriguez has that little bit of guile and finesse in tight spaces to create space for himself and others.

Crystal Palace FC team news vs Everton FC

Roy Hodgson presides over the largest injury list in the Premier League, with up to eight players missing for this match.


Mamadou Sakho made his return from injury at the weekend for Palace. The injury hampered French international only managed 11 starts last season.


Sakho may be the only fit and available central defender at the weekend. James Tomkins was injured for the 2019/20 run-in. He’s picked up a fresh thigh injury in pre-season causing him to miss the first three matches of the season so far.


His partner at centre-back Gary Cahill could be out for the foreseeable future. Cahill has a thigh muscle problem, with Hodgson explaining there is a tendon involved in the muscle tear.


Scott Dann picked up a muscular injury in the Eagles’ opener against Southampton causing him to miss the United match. He isn’t expected to recover in time for the weekend but should be back soon.


Jairo Riedewald is the most likely defender to make it back onto the pitch this weekend. The injury he picked up wasn’t too serious and shouldn’t cause him to miss further games.


Connor Wickham is back in training for Crystal Palace. He hasn’t featured for the club since his return from loan at Sheffield Wednesday.


First-choice left-back Patrick van Aanholt will also miss out. His shoulder dislocated which needed an operation and there is no timescale for when he’s back.


Nathan Ferguson, Palace’s summer signing at right-back, is also out with a knee injury.


Christian Benteke had been playing with a cracked bone in his foot after the restart. It had previously been diagnosed as a bone bruise. He is back in training and is rated 50/50 at best to be involved here.

Everton FC team news vs Crystal Palace FC

Carlo Ancelotti is without five players coming into this match.


Cenk Tosun and Jean-Philippe Gbamin both remain on the long-term injury list. Tosun with an ACL injury and Gbamin after Achilles surgery.


Jarrad Branthwaite will be out for around a month with an ankle problem. Thankfully he won’t need surgery and rest should solve it.


Mason Holgate wasn’t expected to be out long after he suffered a toe injury in the pre-season game against Preston North End. However, Ancelotti confirmed this week that he will be out for at least two to three months.


Jonas Lossl will also miss out due to a lower back injury.
