Everton will hope to regroup and start afresh during the final stretch of Premier League fixtures after losing two in a row prior to the international break.

The Toffees are hot on the heels of Merseyside rivals Liverpool in the battle for European football ahead of their clash with Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on Monday.

Carlo Ancelotti will have been stewing on that 2-1 defeat to Burnley in mid-March and will expect a strong showing on Everton’s return to action.

Palace look fairly secure in mid-table once again without particularly threatening to gate-crash the top half.

They lost just one of their last five as they picked up wins against West Brom and Brighton and drew with Man Utd and Fulham.

Everton will remain without Jordan Pickford for the visit of Crystal Palace. The goalkeeper missed out for England over the international break after picking up a muscle injury and is not yet fit to return.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin could figure after training the last two weeks, with James Rodriguez fully fit. However, Fabian Delph, Bernard and Abdoulaye Doucoure remain sidelined.

Tyrick Mitchell could return for Crystal Palace at Goodison Park while Nathaniel Clyne, Cheikhou Kouyate and James McCarthy will be assessed.

James Tomkins, Mamadou Sakho and James McArthur have not featured since earlier this year and remain sidelined.

Everton v Crystal Palace Predictions

Two teams with 100% records in the Premier League so far this season go head-to-head with Crystal Palace host Everton on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson’s side pulled off an impressive 3-1 win away at Manchester United last time out despite seeing only 24% of the ball, backing up their opening-day 1-0 victory over Southampton.

But the Eagles will find it anything but easy against Everton, who have been puffing out their chest following a 1-0 victory away to Tottenham Hotspur and a 5-2 home thrashing of newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion.

The additions of midfield trio Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez have improved the Toffees no end in possession while the latter has added star quality which fans have been craving since the takeover of Farhad Moshiri in 2016.

Games between these two have been closely fought affairs in the recent past but given their respective form, this should be an interesting match-up, to say the least.

Opta stats

Everton are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace (W6 D6), though they've not done the league double over the Eagles since the 2004-05 campaign.

Crystal Palace have lost their last three away league games against Everton, more than they had in their previous 10 visits to Goodison Park (W4 D4 L2). They've never lost four consecutive away games against the Toffees before.

Four of Crystal Palace's five Premier League wins against Everton have been at Goodison Park, with their most recent victory there coming in September 2014 (3-2).

Everton have lost seven of their last 11 Premier League home games (W3 D1), having lost just one of their 15 previously (W7 D7). Their seven-home league defeats this season is their most in a single Premier League campaign since 2015-16 (8).

Crystal Palace have kept just one clean sheet in their last 18 Premier League away games (W5 D2 L11), with that coming in a goalless draw at Arsenal in January. Only Sheffield United (0) have kept fewer clean sheets on the road than the Eagles this season.

Crystal Palace have conceded a league-high 13 Premier League goals in the final 15 minutes of games this season, one more than they did in the whole of 2019-20.

Everton are averaging just 9.8 shots-per-game in the Premier League this season, their second lowest total on record in a single campaign in the competition (since 1997-98). However, their shot conversion rate of 14.7% is their highest in a single top-flight season since 1997-98.

Five of Everton striker Richarlison's six Premier League goals this season have been the winning goal of the game. The only player to score more winning goals for the Toffees in a single Premier League campaign was Paul Rideout in 1994-95 (6).

Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored 14 Premier League goals this season, his best return in a single campaign in the competition. Six of his 14 goals have been headers, with Tim Cahill the last Everton player to score more headed goals in a single league campaign (7 in 2009-10).

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has never won away against Everton in the Premier League (D1 L8), losing each of his last seven visits. Indeed, Goodison Park is the ground Hodgson has managed at the most without ever winning in the competition.
