ONE TO WATCH
FORMER CLUBS – Dynamo Kyiv
The Ukrainian defender has become a popular addition to Goodison Park since he joined the club in January 2022. In that time he has already racked up over 50 appearances for the club, scoring 2 goals, one of which was against Brighton last weekend to secure a point.
MARC GUEHI v DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN
The Palace defender will be celebrating yet another call up to the England squad and looking in a good place to secure a place in the squad for the European Championship Finals next summer. He will be up against a striker that is struggling to find form of old but can still be dangerous on his day.
- GOALS – Odsonne Edouard (4 – 14th in PL)
- ASSISTS – Jordan Ayew/ Jean-Philippe Mateta (3 – 8th in PL)

No side has kept more than Palace’s 5 Premier League clean sheets this season, while no side has failed to score in more different games this term than Everton (5).
Palace have won 1 of their past 17 Premier League meetings with Everton, a 3-1 home win in December 2021.
Everton have won 2 of their past 3 Premier League away from home, as many as they had in their last 23 on the road.
No team have scored fewer home goals in the Premier League than Palace so far this season (4). They have also conceded just 5 times at home this term, meaning Selhurst Park has seen fewer goals than any other ground in 2023-24.
Everton have scored 11 Premier League goals from an xG of 16.6, the second biggest underperformance in terms of goals versus expected goals so far this term, behind only Chelsea.
As a result, the Toffees have the lowest shot conversion rate of any Premier League side this season (6.9%).
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored 10 Premier League goals in London, the only Everton player to reach double figures in the capital. He netted in both of Everton’s wins in the capital this term.
This will be a tight match up and the two teams head into the fixture off the back of picking up points in their last game. The Toffees will be a tough proposition as they have managed to find their feet in the season with three wins and a draw in their last five. It will be interesting to see how Palace fare in this one as they return home of the back of a victory at Burnley but we are going for the Eagles just about edging it with a late winner.
FINAL SCORE: 2-1
