Everton vs Crystal Palace
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21st October 2018
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
The Toffees will be hosting the Eagles in the Goodison Park for this Sunday fixture. They will be in high spirits after a perfect comeback in their last 2 EPL games, just before the international break.
Marco Silva’s men managed to scoop 6 points in two back-to-back matches against Fulham and Leicester city. This will be a motivating factor when they host Palace in this tight matchup.
Notably, Silva will be looking forward to securing his first win against as a manager. Currently, Everton is in the 11th place of the league standings and will not relent to climb to the top courtesy of this home game.
Everton’s striking coordination is highly rated having failed to score in only one game in their last 6 fixtures. The high flying Sigurdsson will be in the starting XI among Richarlison and Theo Walcott.
Roy Hodgson’s side will be coming into this away matchup at a time they are experiencing poor performance. They continually displayed deterioration in team form and performance in their last three matches before the international break.
They will be hoping their strong abilities on the road and solid recent record away to the Toffees will help them to pick up their first three points since beating Huddersfield away in September.
Palace will be without target man Christian Benteke who is out with injury. Moreover, Wilfried Zaha being engaged in this matchup remains a huge doubt.
Everton vs Crystal Palace: Head-to-Head
- Everton is undefeated at home by Crystal Palace in the last 3 home matches. Additionally, Everton has not lost to the Eagles in the last 7 h2h meetings.
- Everton won the last h2h clash played in February this year. The Toffees remains the most dominant with two wins in the last 5 h2h meetings.

Everton vs Crystal Palace: Prediction
Given the strong striking power of both teams, both teams finding the back of each other’s net is a decent pick for this matchup. However, it should be noted that the Crystal Palace will be without their renowned strikers.
The most viable pick of the 3-way selection is a home win. Everton looks more focused and strong than the visitors.
