Preview: Crystal Palace vs Everton

18 November 2017

After morale-boosting results against Chelsea and West Ham United in their last two matches at Selhurst Park, the Eagles welcome Everton to south London who have also suffered a poor start and a change of manager this term.

Despite the recent improvement in home form and encouraging displays on the road against Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur, four points from their opening 11 games marks Palace's joint-worst start to a top-flight campaign.

However, they finished 11th the other time it happened in 2013/14, proving that there is still plenty of time on Roy Hodgson’s side as he aims to pull his side closer to safety and increase the pressure on their next opponents in the process.

Unsworth Still At The Helm


Like his countryman Frank de Boer, Ronald Koeman was removed from his post at Goodison Park after 16 months at the helm in October, paying the price for seven defeats in 11 matches in all competitions, having invested almost £140m in players during the summer.

Caretaker David Unsworth’s audition for the vacancy has seen him win just once in four games, although that came last time out as the Merseysiders showed some much-needed fight to recover from two-goals down to beat Watford 3-2, and edge a couple of points away from the bottom three.

It looks as though he will be in the dugout again in SE25 on the weekend, with reported moves for the Hornets’ Marco Silva and ex-Palace boss Sam Allardyce not working out.

View From The Opposition

David Unsworth

David Unsworth goes into the game in SE25 looking for his side to build on their last outing that saw them come from two down to win 3-2 against Watford. 

“We will give the message to the players of what they did well in that half-hour spell against Watford, when we were on the front foot, flying into tackles, brave and positive – and there was a sense of freedom I had not seen in the previous couple of weeks.

“It might be a game-changing result going forward – I hope so, and I hope the players take confidence from that game, the win and the fans' reaction at the end.

“Those are the types of moments you play football for and it is and when you realise Everton is as special as it is. 

“Crystal Palace have good individual players and I am sure they will be looking to play on the front foot as well, so we have to neutralise that and stop that threat, but also come up with something ourselves.”

Team News

Christian Benteke returned to training last week and could be fit enough to be in contention to feature for the Eagles for the first time since September, but Hodgson was dealt a blow by seeing Ruben Loftus-Cheek limp off during England’s goalless draw against Brazil with a minor back issue.

Patrick van Aanholt is still out with a hamstring injury, as is Connor Wickham who is still a couple of months away from recovering from the knee injury sustained nearly a year ago.

Tom Davies withdrew from the England under-21 side with a slight hamstring injury so doubts remain over his availability, with Ross Barkley and James McCarthy also struggling with the same issue. Long-term injury victims Yannick Bolasie, Seamus Coleman and Ramiro Funes Mori are definitely out.

Match Reports

Report: Crystal Palace 2-2 Everton

18 November 2017

Palace let the lead slip from their grasp twice at Selhurst Park as David Unsworth’s Everton escaped from south London with a point.

In a frantic first half, James McArthur gave the Eagles the dream start by scoring within the first minute before Roy Hodgson’s team were quickly pegged back by a controversial Leighton Baines penalty just four minutes later.

Wilfried Zaha then scored his third of the campaign to once again raise hopes, but an Oumar Niasse strike just before the break ultimately got Everton a draw they scarcely deserved, with the home side unable to find a way past Jordan Pickford in the second 45.

Palace came into this game having not scored a home league goal against the Toffees since 1994, but it took them just 51 seconds to change that stat. Yohan Cabaye fed the ball into Ruben Loftus-Cheek on the edge of the box, who was handed too much time to get the ball out from under his feet, check back and get a shot away which was parried by Pickford, but only into the path of McArthur who celebrated his return to the line-up by tapping home the rebound and hand his side the perfect start.

But the feel-good factor quickly evaporated as Everton found a quick-fire equaliser just four minutes later, albeit in very controversial circumstances. Niasse burst into the box where he knocked the ball past Scott Dann, and despite minimal contact with the Eagles captain, his legs crumpled under him. Anthony Taylor was duped into pointing to the spot, and as usual, Everton’s all-time record penalty scorer Baines made no mistake from 12 yards to level things up.

A sense of injustice quickly engulfed Selhurst Park, along with the driving rain, and it took the Eagles a while to get over that setback; indeed Niasse almost capitalised on it when he danced his way into the box and hit goalwards but Julian Speroni managed to get down low and push it away, but gradually the hosts began to build themselves back up and McArthur forced Pickford into a save with 33 minutes gone.

But two minutes later, the old ground came alive again when Hodgson’s team regained the lead with a well-worked move. McArthur spread the ball out to the galloping Joel Ward on the right flank who delivered a fantastic low centre right into the corridor of uncertainty, and after it beat Pickford the ball was on a plate for Zaha to net for the third home game in succession.

However, after the winger had been denied a spot-kick after being bundled over in the box, in what looked a more clear-cut claim than Niasse’s, Palace’s Achilles heel came back to haunt them again as they conceded late in the half to see their advantage slip through their fingers.

Speroni did well to turn past the charging Ademola Lookman but he fed a dangerous short pass into Dann. A slight hesitation by the defender was pounced upon by Idrissa Gueye and that allowed Gylfi Sigurdsson the chance to slide in Niasse, and the Senegalese striker made no mistake, coolly tucking the unexpected opportunity away to punish the mistake.

The Argentinian atoned for his error a couple of minutes after the restart when Sigurdsson cut the ball back for half-time introduction Dominic Calvin-Lewin who smashed goalwards but Speroni showed great reactions to stick out a hand and push the ball away from danger, and then Dann headed wide of the mark after a corner as the game flowed from end to end.

Hodgson Unhappy With Two Lost Points

18 November 2017

Unlike the weather conditions, the chances dried up after that and so Hodgson introduced the fit-again Christian Benteke with 15 minutes to play, and he had a glorious chance to put Palace ahead for a third time when he was played through by Zaha, but when faced one-on-one with Pickford, he squibbed his effort well wide of the mark.

The Belgian did better with his second opportunity when he drilled a hammer of shot from 25 yards towards goal but it came straight to Pickford who beat it away, and then in the dying embers Luka Milivojevic nearly steered home a shot from the edge of the box, but once again the England international stopper was equal to it to hand his team a share of the spoils.

Palace: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Sakho, Schlupp, Loftus-Cheek, Cabaye (Puncheon 85), Milivojevic, McArthur (Benteke 75), Zaha, Townsend. Subs not used: Hennessey, Souare, Fosu-Mensah, Tomkins, Sako.

Everton: Pickford, Kenny, Jagielka, Keane, Baines, Gueye, Schneiderlin (Davies 46), Lookman (Calvert-Lewin 46), Sigurdsson, Lennon (Sandro 75), Niasse. Subs not used: Robles, Martina, Williams, Rooney.
