Patrick Vieira’s side have only been beaten once on their travels this season at Manchester City and picked up creditable draws against Liverpool and Newcastle United but are yet to taste victory on the road.
The Eagles did continue their strong recent form with a 2-1 win against Wolves in midweek and it seems unlikely that Vieira will make too many changes to a side in confident mood ahead of the trip to Merseyside.
Here is how Football FanCast expects the Frenchman to line his side up against Everton on Saturday.
Despite the summer addition of Sam Johnstone, Vicente Guaita has been a mainstay in Palace’s side so far this season and looks likely to keep his place in between the sticks against Everton.
Marc Guehi and Joachim Andersen have formed a formidable partnership in the heart of the Eagles’ defence and will most likely be flanked by Tyrick Mitchell and Joel Ward, who will continue at right-back in the absence of Nathaniel Clyne, who remains sidelined through injury.
There could be one change in midfield in order to counter Everton’s all-action midfield three of Alex Iwobi, Idrissa Gana Gueye and Amadou Onana, with Luka Milivojevic coming in for his first start of the Premier League season, replacing the “incredible” Jeffrey Schlupp, as once dubbed by former manager Roy Hodgson.
The Serbian’s defensive nous should allow Cheick Doucoure the freedom to play more box-to-box, which in turn gives Eberechi Eze more of a free role after an impressive start to the season for the former QPR man, who has returned two goals and two assists.
Finally, there are no surprises in attack as Michael Olise and Wilfried Zaha start on the wings, supporting Odsonne Edouard up front and Vieira will be hoping his side can pick up where they left off against Wolves on Tuesday.
