Everton vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips
Carlo Ancelotti’s army has started winning. The Toffees are without a defeat since their first Premier League match of the year when they got defeated by the reigning champion Manchester City. Since then, they played four games, winning two and drawing two.
Their previous Premier League match was the one with Watford at Vicarage Road, which Everton managed to win 3:2 despite conceding two goals by 42’. Yeri Mina helped them equalize with two foals in the stoppage time of the first half.
They then managed to stop Watford from scoring even though Everton had a player sent off due to two yellow cards. Not only did they manage to keep their net intact but they also managed to score in 90’ when Walcott put one away on an assist of Kean.
The entire reason why we wanted to talk about this match is to show that the Toffees are strong in all areas of the game. They’re good at the back and very lethal up in the front, with some really amazing players in the team. This team definitely belongs much higher than they currently are, which is the 9th place. The good news is that they have only 4 points fewer than Tottenham, the team that’s currently in the 5th place.
With the guideline of their manager Carlo Ancelotti, Everton might be able to challenge a spot in the Europa League. Speaking of their manager, it seems that the entire problem with Everton this season was the man in charge. Before Ancelotti came to the club, the Toffees were led by Marco Silva, the former manager of Watford. In the Watford vs Everton game, fans of both teams together sang a song calling out Silva: “Marco Silva, we told you he’s sh**t… Yes, you did!”
Now that Ancelotti’s in charge, Everton look capable of beating almost any opponent. One of the teams that belong to that group is Crystal Palace. Although they’re now a bad side, they’re nowhere near Everton in terms of quality. Plus, they’re in a pretty poor form, having lost their previous two Premier League games in a row after drawing three straight matches.

Everton Form and Latest News
Fabian Delph is going to miss this game, but if there’s something amazing about Everton it’s that their bench is super-long. Ancelotti has plenty of players to choose from as Delph’s replacement, all of whom are very motivated to showcase their abilities on the pitch. The 21-year-old Tom Davies will probably fill in that role.
Crystal Palace Form and Latest News
They are without a win since Boxing Day in all competitions, including the FA Cup, in which they lost to Derby County. Their biggest problem this season has been their attack. Despite the fact that their best player, Wilfred Zaha is very attacking-minded, Crystal Palace haven’t been utilizing him much. In fact, Zaha has scored only 3 goals so far, but even such a small number is enough to be the Eagles’ second most prolific scorer. Speaking of scoring, this team has put away only 22 goals, less than any other team in the Prem.
