Preview: Everton vs Crystal Palace

19 October 2018

Crystal Palace head up to Merseyside this Sunday and will be kicking off at Everton’s Goodison Park looking for their third straight victory over Marco Silva.

Roy Hodgson’s side will be hoping that their strong abilities on the road and solid recent record away to the Toffees will help them to pick up their first three points since beating Huddersfield Town away in September.

While Palace’s current form has suffered lately compared with Everton’s two consecutive league wins against Fulham and Leicester City respectively, their recent record at Goodison Park will encourage Eagles fans, having won two and drawn two of their previous five games in the blue half of Merseyside.

This league fixture has historically provided reliable entertainment for the neutral, having yielded 2.67 goals-per-game from 14 matches.

But Palace will be without target man Christian Benteke, who has netted five times from just nine games against the Toffees. His record facing the Blues will be missed but the Eagles forwards will be looking to maintain this fixture’s high-scoring standards. Everton have conceded 12 goals this season compared with Palace’s nine.

Silva will be hoping to secure his first win as a manager against Palace, having lost during stints leading both Hull City and Watford in 2017. Though at his disposal this time is Gylfi Sigurðsson, who has been involved in seven goals against Palace from six Premier League starts.

The Icelandic midfielder has scored three times from his past four league games and will be looking to rack up a trio of successive matches with a goal under his belt.

But as the Eagles will face three of the Premier League’s top five in their forthcoming consecutive fixtures after Everton, Hodgson will be determined to take all three points back to south London.

Team news

Palace's Wilfried Zaha is due to be assessed following an injury sustained whilst on international duty. It is not yet clear whether he will be available for Sunday's fixture but he should feature if he can complete training unscathed. 

On Wednesday, Joel Ward picked up a muscular injury in training and will be unavailable for the match. Jonny Williams has also picked up an injury and so will not be available for selection. Max Meyer and Alexander Sørloth are in doubt currently due to illness while Christian Benteke is still injured, but his recovery is expcted to be marginally shorter than first expected.

Everton have been bouyed by the return of three previously in-doubt players. Yerry Mina, André Gomes and James McCarthy are all now fully fit and ready to play on Sunday. Idrissa Gana Gueye will face a late fitness test having picked up an ankle injury while on international duty for Senegal.

Did you know?

James Vaughan became the league’s youngest-ever scorer when playing for Everton as a 73rd-minute substitute against the Eagles. He was 16 and 271 days old and helped the Toffees to win 4-0, before going on to play for Palace later in his career.

Double agent

Yannick Bolasie rapidly rose to prominence during his years at Selhurst Park and terrorised defenders up and down well-trodden wings for four years before moving to Everton for a club-record sale of £25 million. He now plays on loan for Aston Villa and has made six appearances so far this season, scoring twice.

Big game flashback

In 2001, Crystal Palace travelled up to Goodison as a struggling second tier side in round two of the League Cup. The season before, the Eagles had finished 15th in the First Division whilst opponents Everton had ended their Premier League campaign high in 13th.

As clear underdogs, Steve Bruce’s side went on to win a game that saw 11 penalties converted and 12 taken. With all square at 1-1 following a Duncan Ferguson penalty on the 6th minute and Dougie Freedman’s on the 10th, extra time failed to separate the two sides and so referee John Brandwood blew for a shoot-out.

Kevin Campbell was the only one of ten players to miss and so Palace went through as victors 5-4 on penalties despite Paul Gascoigne managing to convert their fourth; putting pressure on Clinton Morrison, who took the final kick. Palace’s joy wasn’t to last however as fate played a cruel hand when they lost the third round 3-1 on penalties against Sheffield Wednesday.

Key game elsewhere

Keep an eye on Newcastle United’s game against Brighton and Hove Albion this Saturday, a match that could extend the Seagulls’ advantage over Palace to four points before Sunday’s kick-off.

Newcastle, however, almost pulled off an impressive result against Manchester United in their last game and have had the international break to prepare for Brighton’s visit.

If Palace win and Brighton fail to, the Eagles will leapfrog the south coast side. A draw for the Eagles would be enough if Brighton lose.

Match Reports

Report: Everton 2-0 Crystal Palace

21 October 2018

Late goals by substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun saw Everton snatch all the points at Goodison Park, leaving Palace to rue Luka Milivojevic’s second half penalty miss.

The Eagles had struck the crossbar in the first half through Cheikhou Kouyaté before winning a spot-kick just before the hour mark, but Jordan Pickford denied the visiting skipper with his legs.

However with three minutes remaining it still looked like Roy Hodgson’s team were set for a deserved point, but the two Toffees substitutes struck in the 87th and 89th minutes to stretch Everton’s unbeaten run against Palace to eight matches.

Marco Silva’s team started impressively with some slick, quick passing allowing them to spend plenty of time inside the final third, but a well-drilled Palace defence repelled everything their opponents threw at them except a Seamus Coleman blast which harmlessly flew over on nine minutes.

The Eagles continued to keep Everton at bay until the 30th minute when perennial scourge Gylfi Sigurdsson played a one-two with Coleman on the edge of the box before stabbing the ball towards the top corner which the in-form Wayne Hennessey managed to divert over, but Hodgson’s team showed what they could create themselves as they went close three times in quick succession.

Firstly, Andros Townsend clipped a cross towards the back post which James Tomkins headed well wide on 33 minutes, and 60 seconds later Milivojevic forced Jordan Pickford to scramble across his goalline to push away a curling free-kick. Then, from the resulting corner, they almost edged in front when Tomkins nodded the delivery across goal and Kouyaté headed the ball off the crossbar with England’s number one well beaten.


A quiet affair had suddenly burst into life and Richarlison was next to test his luck with a header from a corner which whistled over, and just before the half-time whistle Sigurdsson came closer with a drive from 20 yards which zipped past the bottom corner.

In similar fashion to the first half, Everton enjoyed the early stages without creating anything dangerous, but just before the 60-minute mark Palace were handed a huge chance to go in front. For the first time all game, Wilfried Zaha teased his way into the box and cut back, deceiving Coleman who brought him down for a penalty. Milivojevic attempted to drill it down the middle, but the diving Pickford dangled out a trailing leg and managed to prevent the kick finding the net.


Once again that sparked proceedings back into life and at the other end Hennessey showed his own importance once again when he denied Theo Walcott when he went one-on-one with Wales’ number one, and Townsend tried to bend the ball into the top corner which Pickford was equal to.

It was anyone’s game by this point and on 74 minutes Andre Gomes dragged an effort wide following a swift break by Walcott before Sigurdsson saw a shot from a similar range blocked by the resolute Eagles defence

But with three minutes remaining, Silva’s men got the golden goal. Michael Keane won a header in the middle of the pitch which fell to Richarlison and he played it to Ademola Lookman. The former Charlton Athletic man scooped it into the box where the fresh Calvert-Lewin was waiting to pounce, and he headed past a helpless Hennessey from close range just four minutes after his introduction.

Then, two minutes later Keane lumped a long ball forward and another substitute Tosun was able to outsprint Mamadou Sakho from the halfway line to seize possession, compose himself and fire through Hennessey’s legs to seal a third straight win for the Merseysiders.

Everton: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Gomes (Calvert-Lewin 82), Gueye, Walcott (Lookman 82), Sigurdsson, Bernard (Tosun 66), Richarlison. Subs not used: Stekelenburg, Baines, Mina, Davies.

Palace: Hennessey, Wan-Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt, McArthur (Wickham 89), Milivojevic, Kouyaté, Schlupp, Townsend, Zaha. Subs not used: Guaita, Kelly, Riedewald, Puncheon, Kaikai, Ayew.
