Everton slipped to a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Arsenal last weekend and Sam Allardyce tore into his players after the match. The Toffees have only won one of their last nine matches in all competitions and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven.
Crystal Palace have only lost three of their last 16 matches in all competitions but injuries to key players are starting to build up for Roy Hodgson’s side, illustrated by the fact they have not won in three.
Four points separate the two sides in the Premier League but an evenly balanced game is expected between two sides struggling for the right results at the moment. This is a great opportunity for both teams to give themselves extra breathing space over the relegation zone.
