Everton host Crystal Palace at Goodison Park in an all-important Premier League clash. While Everton are placed 8th with 46 points, Crystal Palace occupy the 12th position with 37 points. Both the teams are coming on the back of two contrasting games. While Everton lost their previous FA Cup quarter-final game against Manchester City 0-2, Palace are coming on the back of a 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion.
Carlo Ancelotti side's form has been blowing hot and cold in the Premier League. Although they have been slumping to defeats to a lot of teams in the Premier League, they are still up for a top-four finish but a win in this game will be very crucial for them. James Rodriguez might be returning to action today and his form and experience will be very important to Everton. Jean Phillipe might also get some game time for the Toffees.
Crystal Palace won their last Premier League game and Serbian midfielder Luka Milivojevic scored a penalty to win it for Palace. Tyrick Mitchell is all set to stage a comeback in this game, though as a substitute. Crystal Palace are far away from the relegation zone this time and this might infuse some confidence. But the Eagles have had a terrible record against Everton. They have just won 2 games out of the 15 games played.
Jordan Pickford, Bernard, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Fabian Delph will be missing out on the game due to injuries. James Rodriguez’s participation after a calf injury is still 50-50.
Mamadou Sakho, James McCarthy and Nathan Ferguson are sure to miss the game because of their respective injuries.
