            Everton vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting Tips

            Everton host Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on Monday Night Football with both sides desperate for three points in the battle for survival.

            These odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

            Date: 19/02/24

            Kick-off time: 20:00

            Venue: Goodison Park

            Everton currently sit in the relegation zone with 19 points, following their 10-point deduction earlier in the season. Without the deduction, they would be in 12th, but their punishment means they face an uphill battle in the fight to stay in the top flight. They are one point off Luton, who are a place above them, but the Hatters have a game in hand. A win would be huge for their chances of survival, but a loss would plunge them into deeper trouble.

            The Eagles are not doing much better, as they occupy 15th, and are also fighting to keep their Premier League status. Manager Roy Hodgson is under increasing pressure as they are only five points above the drop zone following their 3-1 home defeat at home to Chelsea on Monday night.

            Both teams struggle to score, with Palace scoring 27, one greater than Everton’s 26 goals seeing them rank as the fourth and third-worst attacks in the division. Dominic Calvert-Lewin in particular has struggled greatly, with the striker failing to find the back of the net since late October.

            The Toffees have got the better of Crystal Palace in recent times, and are unbeaten in six meetings with their opponents. They have already met three times this season, once in the league and twice in the FA Cup. Their third-round FA Cup tie required a replay, after the pair drew 0-0 at Selhurst Park. Everton advanced to the fourth round after Andre Gomes’ 42nd-minute goal proved the difference at Goodison.

            Their other meeting came in the reverse fixture earlier this season, in which Sean Dyche’s side were 3-2 winners. There were two very early goals for each team, as Vitaliy Mykolenko scored after just a minute to put the visitors ahead. Eberechi Eze converted from the spot four minutes later to quickly put his team back on level terms. The rest of the scoring came in the second half, with Abdoulaye Doucoure restoring Everton’s advantage shortly after the restart. Palace would equalise again through Odsonne Edouard, but Idrissa Gueye’s 86th-minute winner was enough to condemn the Eagles to defeat.

            Abdoulaye Doucoure has been out with a thigh injury, but has returned to training with a potential return coming this weekend. Arnaut Danjuma is also being assessed for his ankle injury, though it remains to be seen if this weekend’s game comes too soon for the pair. There is no return date for Andre Gomes’ calf injury.

            Roy Hodgson has been dealt a triple blow with Eberiche Eze, Michael Olise and Marc Guehi all picking up injuries. Eze and Olise both have thigh issues, with the latter’s potentially keeping him out until April. Guehi has a knee injury, but he and Eze could return before the end of the month.

            Everton

            In their last five games, Everton have won one, drawn two and lost two. Their one victory came at the beginning of this stretch of games, a 1-0 win against this weekend’s opponents Crystal Palace in an FA Cup third-round replay. They advanced to the next round thanks to a winner from Andre Gomes. They were rewarded with a home tie with Luton, but were handed an early exit as Cauley Woodrow scored a 96th-minute winner to make it 2-1.

            Their league form has not been good, with just three points taken from the last nine available. However, two of those opponents were Tottenham and Manchester City. Their other game was away at Fulham, in which they picked up a goalless draw. Their hosts dominated possession, but the Everton defence held firm. The Toffees were fortunate to salvage a point in their next game against Spurs, as a Jarrad Branthwaite equaliser in the sixth minute of stoppage time ensured the points were shared after Richarlison scored a brace either side of a Jack Harrison strike.

            Man City were their latest opponents, and whilst they held them to zero shots on target in the first half, their resistance was broken in the 71st minute as Erling Haaland put his side in front. He then doubled the lead soon after.

            Crystal Palace

            In their last five games, Crystal Palace have won one, drawn one and lost three. This stretch of games began with two fixtures against this weekend’s opponents, as they met in the FA Cup third round. The first game ended in a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park, which forced a replay at Goodison. It was another tight game, but the hosts ended up coming out on top, as Andre Gomes scored in the 42nd minute to knock Palace out at the first hurdle.

            They returned to league action with a thumping 5-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal. The Gunners only took 11 minutes to get in front through Gabriel Magalhaes, before he added another before the break. Leandro Trossard scored the third, and Gabriel Martinelli netted two more in stoppage time to complete the rout. Palace responded with a huge 3-2 victory against bottom-side Sheffield United. Despite going behind twice, a brace from Eberechi Eze and another goal from Michael Olise meant they turned it around and took three points.

            However, they could not build on this win as they were crushed 4-1 at their rivals Brighton the following week. They fell behind early and could not recover. Lewis Dunk put the hosts ahead after three minutes, before two goals in as many minutes extended the lead to three prior to half-time. Jean-Philippe Mateta bagged a consolation, but Joao Pedro scored a fourth.

            The Eagles were beaten 3-1 by Chelsea at Selhurst Park on Monday night despite taking a first-half lead through Jefferson Lerma. In the second half, a brace from former Eagles loanee Conor Gallagher and a stoppage-time strike from Enzo Fernandez sealed the points for Chelsea.
