Betting prediction: Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace

Everton has broken even in their last six Premier League fixtures (3-0-3) but has lost their last two on the bounce and falling away from top-four contention. A win would see them climb level Tottenham, Liverpool, and West Ham United all of whom sit on 49-points. Crystal Palace is more than likely safe from a late-season drop down the table but their inconsistency in front of goal will always be called into question while failing to take three points off Everton in any of their last six meetings. A draw could be on the cards for this one.

Everton vs Crystal Palace: Recommended bets

Result/Both Teams to Score: Draw – Yes

Both Everton and Crystal Palace are guilty of Jekyll & Hyde moments in the final third this season despite some of the attacking options on offer at both clubs. Christian Benteke was in good form before the international break, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin remains a considerable threat even though he has cooled off when compared to the beginning of the season. Even if the pair are kept quiet, there could be enough in the tank for either side to find a goal and share the spoils.

To Score Anytime: Christian Benteke

The big Belgian was in good form for Palace before the break and went on to bag a goal for his country in their 8-0 rout of Belarus in World Cup Qualifying. He is expected to be given the nod against by Roy Hodgson and is a decent bet to help Palace find a breakthrough.

Everton vs Crystal Palace: Match preview

He is a man that has seen it all and done it all, and with Carlo Ancelotti throwing down the gauntlet and challenging his Everton outfit to end on a high and fight their way into Europe next season, it would be hard to bet against the iconic Italian from masterminding such a feat.

Six wins in their last ten Premier League fixtures is what the former Italy international deems required for the Toffees to successfully leapfrog Tottenham, Liverpool, and West Ham for fifth-placed and the guarantee of the Europa League at the bare minimum, with an outside chance of outpacing Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea for an unlikely finish in the final Champions League birth.

It will be hard going without Jordan Pickford however, with the England international still missing for the Toffees, but Ancelotti has just about a full-strength squad to choose from and no residual commitments either in domestic cup competitions or in Europe. It may not seem like it, but Everton – who currently have matches in hand on their closest rivals in the table – are very much in the driver’s seat and in control of their own destiny. Three points against Crystal Palace would see them level for 5th, while two wins in their two matches in hand would have them a point above Chelsea in fourth.

Impossible? No, but the Toffees will have to find a bit more in the goal department if they are to make headway, having scored just two in their last four and remain heavily reliant on Dominic Calvert-Lewin as their chief goal contributor given the inconsistency shown by Richarlison and few goal threats after James Rodríguez or set-piece maestro Gylfi Sigurdsson. The close-knit nature of the table leaves every possibility available though, and if Everton can find the form they kick-started their season with, they could still surprise a few.

Crystal Palace on the brink of a turning point

With the future of Roy Hodgson uncertain and the former England manager out of contract in the summer, Crystal Palace is on the cusp of entering a crossroads in terms of who and what they are on the pitch. At current, Palace is very much a side in Hodgson’s image; good enough to be midtable, but never progressive enough to really go on to establish themselves as a side who could surprise and push for a top-seven or top-eight finish.

It is not for lack of talent in truth, especially when the Eagles have the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Christian Benteke, Eberechi Eze, a player in Jean-Philippe Mateta that has yet to settle, and a good younger in Tyrick Mitchel. The squad needs work, but some key pieces already exist at the club, but whether or not those players are going to want to stick it out to see who the potential new man in the door will be in the wake of Hodgson’s departure – particularly Zaha – is the biggest question. Palace could do a lot worse in really pushing to close the gap to Arsenal and Leeds United who are at current 5-points clear.

This could come down to the man on the touchline still, as always, with Hodgson still fairly incapable of squeezing the maximum out of his better attacking options. Without Zaha, Palace is generally anemic, and even though Eze has looked the part this term despite his age, he is hardly capable of getting a tune out of the whole band on his own. With the future of Zaha likely to hang in the balance yet again this summer, how the club moves forward with potentially replacing not only Hodgson but also potentially Zaha, could very well make or break the club’s ability to remain established in the Premier League. Three points against the Toffees could likely be considered vital at this stage, and though he may not have a future left come the summer, Roy Hodgson still has a vital role to play for the club; not only currently, but in their future trajectory as well.

Everton team news vs Crystal Palace

Carlo Ancelotti will be made persist without the services of Jordan Pickford, Abdoulaye Doucouré, Bernard, and Fabian Delph when Everton host Crystal Palace.

The Italian is however expected to welcome back James Rodríguez, Tom Davies, and Ben Godfrey.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin is finally back for the Toffees but is not at all expected to be called upon as he is eased back into the side.

Crystal Palace team news vs Everton

The trio of Mamadou Sakho, James McCarthy, and Wayne Hennessey is still unavailable to Roy Hodgson for Crystal Palace’s venture north of the capital.

A quintet of players will have to go through last-minute assessments to see who is available; James Tomkins, Tyrick Mitchell, Nathaniel Clyne, James McArthur, and Nathan Ferguson will all have to prove their fitness.
