    Everton vs. Crystal Palace: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:

    crystal palaceEverton (4-2-3-1): Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, McGeady, Barkley, Pienaar, Mirallas

    Everton would have been disappointed with their 1-0 away loss to Tottenham Hotspur that allowed Spurs to leapfrog them into fifth.  There is no doubt that the Merseysiders struggle away from Goodison Park, but they are a different side at home and should really put Crystal Palace under some real pressure.  Romelu Lukaku is still out with an ankle injury, so expect to see either one of Steven Naismith or Kevin Mirallas occupy the lone striker role.  A home game could also allow Ross Barkley to start ‘in the whole’, a more attacking option compared to Leon Osman.

    Crystal Palace (4-4-1-1): Speroni, Delaney, Gabbidon, Dann, Ward, Bolasie, Jedinak, Ledley, Ince, Puncheon, Chamakh

    Last weekend saw Tom Ince-inspired Crystal Palace brush aside West Brom 3-1 at Selhurst Park but face much stiffer opponents in the form of Everton.  The Eagles will have their work cut out, with a dismal away record in the top flight, managing to score only five goals in twelve away outings (the lowest in the league).   In team news, Gabbidon should return to replace Dikgacoi in the heart of defence to partner new signing Scott Dann.  Tom Ince should also retain his starting berth supporting Jason Puncheon and Marouane Chamakh up front.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     Remember this?

    In the first ever season of the English Premier League, Crystal Palace managed to go to Goodison and come out with a 2-0 win.  They’ll be hoping for the same 22 years later!

    It is a fact that Crystal Palace are not much of an attacking threat away from home, so a clean sheet is on the cards for the Everton defence.  Seamus Coleman is the pick of the bunch, as his marauding runs down the wing have already profited with five goals this season.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Everton vs. Crystal Palace: An Alternative Preview

    Everton have won three and lost none of the last five meetings with Crystal Palace in all competitions.

    The Eagles have failed to find the net in five of their last seven away games in the Barclays Premier League.
