Everton Crystal Palace, Six Sports

Everton will try to secure their place for next season’s Premier League as they host Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.

Everton fell to a 3-2 loss in their previous game against Brentford.

Moreover, two of Everton’s players- Jarrad Branthwaite and Saloman Rondon were sent off in the game. Everton had to finish the game with nine men on the pitch.

Everton got a breather when both Leeds United and Burnley failed to win their respective matches.

Therefore, a win against Crystal Palace would ensure their top-flight status for the next season.

Moreover, Frank Lampard’s men have been defeated only twice in their last seven games.

On the other hand, the Eagles will visit Goodison Park on the back of a four-game unbeaten run.

Moreover, Palace also have a record of losing just twice in their last nine outings. Additionally, a league double over Everton is on the cards for the first time for Crystal Palace.
